The Lord God Almighty has indicated that when two people are in love, they should be married. That does not mean, however, that they should rush headlong into a marriage in which the relationship has not yet ripened. The relationship has ripened if both parties can acknowledge that God Almighty is their Supreme Commander, and the Supreme Holy Spirit Of God is their constant guide and companion, always has the final word, is never disobeyed, can never be quelched, and can never be forgotten.
It sometimes takes months, or years in order for a relationship to ripen into a fulfilling marriage, even if the parties are fully committed to each other, and even when they know that the relationship is from God. The Lord God Almighty will never force two people into a relationship who are strangers to each other. Nor will he ever insist that the relationship be consummated on the wedding night. The indwelling Holy Spirit Of God is the only one who should determine when a marriage takes place, when it is consummated, where the couple should live and work, whether or not they should have children, how many children they should have, and ultimately, who should be in charge of which aspects of the family relationship.
