You cannot fully have a great marriage if you are not homely, especially ladies. There is no way you will abandon your home for parties or friends that are not adding anything to you and you expect to enjoy marriage. Be homely, don’t be materialistic and make sure the home is comfortable for everybody to stay.
11. GOOD NEIGHBORLINESS
Do you desire to be married? Then, be a good neighbour in your neighbourhood. If you find it difficult to live at peace with your neighbour as a single, how do you cope in marriage? Learn to manage people you stay together in love.
Generosity is not about being extravagant but being prudent enough to share even from your little with people in need. Giving is living and so if you don’t just want to exist on the surface of the earth but want to truly live, be generous
