Well, marriage is sacred to everyone, especially for Christians. So, it is important and significant to know if you have found the right Christian biker match. Although it is difficult to find a Christian who loves riding motorcycles, there are ways to meet another one. After getting a basic knowledge about each other, you decide to date. Then both of you are beginning to consider marriage because you think you are in a great relationship. But before the proposal, just spend some time to make sure that if he or she is the right one for you. The Bible doesn’t tell Christians how to recognize the right match, but it provides some guidelines.
Christian bikers should only consider marrying another Christian who is also a biker. First, the reason not to marry an unbeliever is that he or she may influence you away from the Lord. Don’t be naive to think that you can motivate the other person to convert. Many couples involved in “dual-faith” relationship will be in conflict and heartache all the time, which cause them to break up or divorce. Moreover, if you marry an unbeliever and have children, will they be encouraged to attend church and live the principles that you live or will they live like an unbeliever. It will be a hindrance to their spiritual health if their parents have different faiths. Then sharing the passion for motorcycles will bond you two together. You will have much to discuss and share with.
Then you should ensure that you are both well-prepared for the responsibility of marriage. The Bible states clearly about the roles of husband and wife. “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. ” “So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. ” If you are Christians, you must be familiar with these words. Before you are able to commit yourself to your marriage, you’d better not choose to get married. Of course, as Christian motorcycle riders, they know the responsibility well just as they know the responsibility when they choose to ride motorcycles.
If you and your date are both Christian bikers and are ready for the responsibility, you should then ensure that you two are perfectly compatible and are well acquainted with each other’s character, personality and habits. You can ask yourself questions like do you share that same life goal with each other, do you share the same attitude towards your family and friends, do you agree on all of the essential day-to-day issues that you will need to address as a married couple and so on.
