Young people, it’s not too early to be wondering how to prepare yourself for marriage. You don’t have to wait until you’re engaged. Actually, you don’t even need to be dating.

You have everything you need to start preparing for marriage now! Don’t worry about what you don’t have; just focus on what you do have.
This is how to prepare:
1. Start Serving Now.
Marriage is all about service. From the first day of your marriage, you will learn very early that marriage is all about serving your spouse. The Husband will serve his wife, as also the wife will serve her husband. So serving family, friends, colleagues while you are single, would help you develop the heart you’ll need for serving your spouse later.
2. Follow through with commitments.
Teach yourself to staying committed to your words. Let your words mean something now. And it will mean much more in Marriage. Be the kind of guy or lady that keeps to a commitment even when it hurts and does no change.
3. Surround Yourself with those whom you Aspire to be
A wise man said, “Show me your friends, and I’ll show you your future”. Look closely at the people you hang around, and you will get a glimpse of the person you are becoming.
4. Don’t demand Change from others before you change yourself
Your Future Spouse will absolutely do things that will frustrate you. Thing you will be desperate to change. But the change you desire must start with you.
5. Lose the baggage.
You won’t ever treat someone’s heart, better than you treat your own. So, start to come to terms with your brokenness now. This will help you understand your spouse’s brokenness later.
