How to Identify Your Soul Mate
Think about your significant other. Are they really the one you would want holding your hand during the darkest hours of your life? Look even deeper.

I wish you could see some of the personal letters that pastors and men of God receive from married people. Yes, some of them are happy, praise God! However, the ones who are not happy are miserable. There are no in between. Either you are happy in a marriage or you are not. There are married women (men) writing saying their husbands (wives) never show authentic affection towards them, never offer expressions of love for them. That is real.

There is a huge difference.
Turn in your Bible to Proverbs 18:22. It says "that He who finds a wife finds a good thing" Interpretation: MEN find women. Women should not be out trying to find a man! HOWEVER, once found, the woman can then choose to be with the man or to wait to be found by a different man.
