John MacArthur on singleness

“You’d be better off if you have the gift [of singleness] to stay single because once you’re married, that’s it. And you’ll never be able to exercise the potential [of singleness] again. So think a long time before you [get married]. Marriage is permanent. Once you’re stuck, you’re stuck. Now, I’m not saying that everybody who’s married is stuck. But there are some people who are married and stuck and you know that. And it isn’t that it’s bad, it’s just that it’s permanent. Some marriages are bad. You know, you can get a woman who clings so much that you can’t do anything. I know some men who would serve the Lord if their wife would ever let go of them long enough.”

LOL. 🙂
