All the days of her life (Proverbs 31:10-12)

An excellent wife who can find?
    She is far more precious than jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her,
    and he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good, and not harm,
    all the days of her life.

I am fond of reading books about singleness and about relationship written by Christians. I love to hear their experiences and apply what I have learned from them. One of the best books that I highly recommend to singles and to those who wanted to engage in a relationship at God’s perfect time is the book of Eric and Leslie Ludy entitled When God Writes Your Love Story. Leslie used the verse above to relate about loving your husband even before you met him.
At first glance, Psalm 31:10-12 seems to refer to the description of a wife after the wedding and as marriage had commence but as you analyze it deeper and read between the lines, you will notice the word “ALL”, not after they were pronounced married, nor since day 1 of marriage neither during marriage but all the days of her life.
Just as Mrs. Ludy had put it, all the days of her life could mean being a real wife to your future husband even before you met him. It seems hard right? How will you love someone you haven’t even met yet?
Trust God! If he had someone reserved for you then that means that person is existing waiting for the right time for the two of you to meet.
How would you feel if your husband is cheating on you? What about if he had betrayed you? And what if you had found out that he had loved so many girls in the past and had given a part of his heart that should be yours?
Treasure your emotions, your heart and your body. Your future husband deserves it. Do not let someone take a part that is supposed to be given to your husband-to-be.
Be a wife of godly character, be a treasure to your future husband. Be a good wife all the days of your life.
