There is no such thing as ‘marrying up’.
Stop evaluating your potential spouse based on their appearance, popularity or income. A short guy who marries a tall girl didn’t marry up. A poor girl who marries a rich guy didnt marry up. The shy girl who dates a jock isnt getting any special favor. Essentially, you’re saying that you think you married someone that has more worth (or net worth) than you.We all have equal worth so that phrase ‘marry up’ is inappropriate.
If you think that you are marrying up then what does your mate feel they are doing?
Either you are married to the person God chose for you or not. Most of us think we are smarter than God. We are too proud, independent and stubborn to let Him make the choice for us. No wonder our divorce rate is so high!
