The Single Christian Man:

Brothers, marriage is a big responsibility. It is not a tea party. It is not a role for boys, it is for men. The Scriptures clearly give us the model for being a man, a husband and father. That model is the "servant/leader."

Let's examine how we can prepare for that role. Here are 5 Tips to get you started:

Tip 1:

You must prepare for Headship
Headship in marriage is what makes the man tick. It is what makes him a man. Headship is not about you having a woman to bully, oppress, harass, or turn into a slave. Headship is a call to selfless service, love, loyalty, and nurturing your wife to be the best that she can be! Headship is about maturity. Boys don't get married, men do. Headship is responsibility - it is not a role for the wayward, irresponsible or seriousness. Headship is spiritual leadership 1 Cor 11:3. The man must know God well, in order to direct his family well.

How can a man prepare for Headship?
Being financially empowered. Money is a very important aspect of marriage. Please don't belittle the importance of money in marriage. As a man, you are expected to provide for your family. You are to provide money for food, shelter, clothing, healthcare, family upkeep, children's school fees, etc. That means you must have a source of income; either a job or business. You must have a vision, be energetic, hard working, ambitious, result-oriented, effective, and empowered for success.
