Enlightening: Why Men Are Called “Groom”, And The Woman “The Bride” On Wedding Day

Posted by: || Categories: Music ||


I came across this post on facebook and felt like sharing cos its quite enlightening. Read Below:

Why is the newly wedded man called groom and the woman called bride? A friend of mine got tired of his wife just about six months after wedding. He complained bitterly to me about her and told me that he has concluded to break up with her; he went on to say that he was sure that he made a mistake. I did not respond immediately because I knew I must tell him that right thing, so I went home, and that is what birth this message.
Many men have broken up with their wives because they end up not being the wife that they have dreamt of, but they have forgotten that on their wedding day was when the man was commissioned for the new task. Nobody calls the woman wife on her wedding day but bride, because it is the man that will groom his bride to become the wife. That is why the man is called ‘bridegroom or groom’ and the word grooming has to do with patiently nurturing, teaching, tending and helping someone to become what he or she should be. It is therefore believed that a man that takes a woman to the altar of marriage is matured enough to patiently groom his bride to become the wife. The man is not supposed to just expect the bride to automatically become the wife, she must be groomed. It is clear that many of us men have unnecessary expectations when we were getting married, we want some magic to happen to our wives, we want them to become what we have had in mind about who we want our wives to be; not considering the fact that the woman does not know what is on your mind except you teach her. Our expectations are often too unrealistic, because we don’t remember that change takes time and we can only expect something from someone that knows what we want. So before you think of breaking up, have you groomed her? Have you given her time to understand you? Hope you realize that a turtle will never become a hawk? God often brings people that are opposites of each other together in marriage so that they can help each other in their place of weaknesses. If your wife is weak where you are weak, then where will you get the strength that is needed? The problem with many of us is that we don’t accept people before attempting to change them. Of course, our wives are not from our backgrounds, so it will take time for them to adjust. Stop trying to change her, accept her, love her, teach her and be patient with her; that is what grooming is all about. She is going to be your wife but she is your bride now, so groom her. Stop complaining about her, she may be a turtle and you a hawk, she cannot fly so be patient with her. I don’t believe that your marriage can’t work, be patient and allow God to help you. I pray Almighty God helps us in our marriages and connect those yet to be married to a loving and caring spouse, Amen

  2. You know, for once, I have read something different about marriage. People keep telling you as a woman you have to be perfect, but here it is clearly stated you have to be groomed. I like this one and I wish everyone will have the understanding that these two coming together as one are from different backgrounds and everything. There should be no need to hurry up with divorce, take your time to groom each other and enjoy the rest of your life in sweetness and love.

  12. I want to thank you very much for this piece of advice in fact it touches me to the extent that I can’t even express my feelings, but just wanna say God richly bless you and your family.

    Now; I’m not married; not even up to the age yet but I know with God I will one day surely marry so I wanna better start preparing now.
    I have a question for you then.
    How will I know a lady really loves me and that I can be with her in the rest of my life?
    what characters may I expect from her to prove her love for me just as I may love her

  19. As a man I never learned how to ask for what I want. I can see from your post why my bride is not my wife because I haven’t groomed her. Please pray for my fear of rejection. It keeps me from it.

  20. This is very impressive I absolutely agree with you the groom has a responsibility of grooming the bride to become the Wife He Wants.

  23. Wow! Thanks for sharing.
    It’s an eye opener

    But I want to strongly advice, that our ladies should be teachable too.

    Because, if the bride is not teachable then it will be impossible for the groom to tutor her.
