8)#ListenUpNG Myth 1: “The Wedding date is fixed and can’t be shifted so…I have to go on with the plans no matter what!”
9)#ListenUpNG I will be referring to the single guy as #DearBooNG and the single lady as #DearBaeNG. So…do you know the wedding day is just that? A day?
10)#ListenUpNG Marriage is the real deal! If the Lord tarries, its suppose to last a lifetime! In the event of a critical issue that needs to be resolved…
11)#ListenUpNG #DearBooNG #DearBaeNG…pls put off the wedding for the time being. I was listening to a call-in pgm on radio the other day
12)#ListenUpNG A guy called in asking for advice. He met and got engaged to his heartthrob years back and both were virgins
13)#ListenUpNG They promised to wait till their wedding night but alas in the course of their separation cos of school and work…
14)#ListenUpNG…#DearBaeNG got sexually involved with two other guys but later confessed and #DearBooNG forgave

16)#ListenUpNG #DearBooNG noticed his sweetheart was withdrawn and not quite herself. He dug deeper and she confessed again
17)#ListenUpNG #DearBaeNG had been having sexual affairs with 3 other men and felt awful about the affairs
18)#ListenUpNG #DearBooNG was in a dilemma. He loved her but wondered if he should forgive again and move on with their wedding plans
19)#ListenUpNG Such is the power of love! The advice he was given? Your guess is as good as mine. Obviously #DearBaeNG has a problem!
20)#ListenUpNG #DearBooNG loves her and wondered if it’s possible to call off the wedding. He is an honorable man and doesn’t want to disgrace her
21)#ListenUpNG What would be his reason for putting off the wedding? What would he tell their families, friends and associates?
22)#ListenUpNG Truly, this is a dilemma and I sympathize with #DearBooNG but he has to make the tough decision
23)#ListenUpNG #DearBooNG #DearBaeNG Having fixed the wedding date is not enough reason to go ahead when…
24)#ListenUpNG …you noticed a very RED FLAG that needs to be addressed. Forget the temporary embarrassment and safeguard your future!
25)#ListenUpNG #DearBooNG #DearBaeNG A broken engagement is by far better than a broken marriage. Receive grace to make the right decision!
26)#ListenUpNG It doesn’t necessarily mean the wedding will never hold but…you need to resolve those issues!
27)#ListenUpNG Myth 2: Mr and Mrs Better half ~ this implies that if you, #DearBooNG #DearBaeNG are still single you are not yet complete!
28)#ListenUpNG That U are ‘deficient’! That U can’t go far in life! That U can’t achieve your dreams&aspirations until U locate your ‘BetterHalf’ or vice versa
28)No wonder! The frantic search for partners by some Singles is pathetic! #ListenUpNG folks, in God’s scheme of things, YOU ARE COMPLETE IN HIM(GOD).
29)#ListenUpNG In God’s mathematical equation as regards marriage, one plus one equals one (1+1=1). Not half plus half!
30)#ListenUpNG #DearBooNG #DearBaeNG Singleness is a phase! Utilize it! Strive to be all you can be! Learn to be comfortable in your own skin.
31)#ListenUpNG Go on a journey of SELF DISCOVERY & understand YOUR PURPOSE. Let the #DearBaeNG or #DearBooNG meet you ‘on the job’!

33)#ListenUpNG #DearBooNG #DearBaeNG So, don’t wait for Mr or Mrs Betterhalf, your ‘Significant Other’ will locate you ‘on the job’!
34)#ListenUpNG Myth 3: Love is blind! Hmmm. Thank God most of us are now beginning to understand that LOVE IS NOT BLIND! Lol!
35)#ListenUpNG #DearBooNG #DearBaeNG LOVE IS NOT MERE FEELINGS OR CHEMISTRY. LOVE IS NOT LUST. LOVE IS A DECISION; A COMMITMENT.
36)#ListenUpNG If you truly believe love is blind then you have to know that marriage is a ‘miracle worker’ – it opens blind eyes.
