Finding our bride and groom

There is a spiritual search that can help when you are looking for companionship.

Will I ever be married? Where is my future wife (or husband)? How will we meet? How will I care for this relationship? Such questions fill the thoughts of many of us. To be loved is a wonderful feeling, but the fear of a broken heart may make one leery of a commitment.

I had daydreamed about being married, casually thought about it many times, but years were passing and I really wondered if I ever would be married. More important, I wanted to be sure I could be happy and satisfied, married or single. That is a basic question we all face: how to be happy whatever our marital status—single, married, divorced, or widowed.

My search for an answer to this question took me to the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. I had found in the past that the answer to many of my questions about myself, my health, relationships, school and work problems, was found in learning more of God and of my true identity as His child. Together with the Bible, Science and Health was a book I found very helpful in solving problems, so I turned to it once again.
