A4P Guest: I heard that Appeal for Purity has a matching service. Am I right?
A4P: Yes, you’re right. What can I do?
A4P Guest: I want to find a wife and can you help me?
A4P: Sure I can.
A4P Guest: But I want to marry a girl who is 24 up to 26 years old.
A4P: No problem. So, how old are you?
A4P Guest: Is that important information for you to know?
A4P: Yes sir! It is very important. Remember, the service is called “Matching service.” So, we have to match you with the girl you are looking for with the information we have from you and her.
A4P Guest: I thought I tell you what I want and you find a match according to my “want.”
A4P: Well, that is half true. Matching service works when there is enough information from both sides.
A4P Guest: Oh, okay, I got you. I am 48 years old.
A4P: And you are looking for a 24 years old girl?
A4P Guest: Yes!
A4P: There is nothing wrong for you to dream to marry a girl who is 24 years younger than you but in real world, that doesn’t work. Are you planning to raise her like a child, spank or ground her when she makes a mistake? BTW, those are rhetorical questions. You don’t have to answer them.
If that is your requirement, I am afraid I can’t help you. I don’t think your requirement is a realistic one. I don’t think you can find a girl who is willing to marry a man who is 24 years older than her.
A4P Guest: What are you talking about? There are millions of girls who are willing to marry any man. The reason I come to you is because I thought you may know a girl who is a true follower of Jesus Christ.
A4P: I do know lots of beautiful single girls who are real and true followers of Jesus Christ. But none of them are willing to marry a man who is 24 years older than them. A girl will be willing to marry a man who is 24 years older than her only when she is desperate to marry. And if you find her, don’t marry her because she will take the air out of your lungs as she demands that you make her the queen of the town (because of her age); and given your age, that might be difficult for you to do.
So, I let you go with this piece of advice: My brother, life is too short to play with. Find a wife who is at least 5 to 8 years younger than you. It is not only the number that matters but the life experience you two may have through those years. For example, you may have lots of stories you don’t want to talk about and at the age 40 or 38, she too may have stories she doesn’t want to talk about. When you two find each other, the matching service may work perfectly as each of you become forgiving of each other’s past life. Then the matching will be fair for you and for her. What you’re dreaming is a good dream but if you bring it into reality, it may hurt you in a very serious way. Think about it. ///
