When they happen to marry, they end up kicking men away and raising children as single mothers. This is a development that has become a commonplace in our age and time.
It may not be the person you showed kindness to, but some strange person shall reward you. You could liken it to the story of the Good Samaritan. It was this passerby stranger who saw a dying soul [not a wasted person] and had compassion on him.

When your kindness reaches the throne of mercies, God shall send an uncommon favor your way. It may be different or delayed but trust God your kindness shall be rewarded. Rebakah kept doing good until, this bright day, she went out to do what she knew best to do.
As she saw Eliezer with camels, she ran to the well and fetch water for him and the camels [Genesis ]. When young people scout out for brides some do not know exactly what they want; while others have no clue which direction they should go and what to look for. Some depend on the winds of fashion, physical attraction and of course, sexual satisfaction. This could answer to why one young female is preferred or chosen among her mates.
She can boast of dating great stars but none is ready to offer her a ticket to become a wife. You may know the job but when you have an attitude or behavioral problems it could result to disharmony in the work place and you could be fired or force to quit. When you engage a wrong staff, no matter how much training you expose the person, there is always a problem. So also is with a spouse.
Leaders look for can do spirit, humble people who serve willingly and ready to go extra mile. They also have bigger picture of the goals yet do not miss details. A man want for wife, a woman with inward strength, who will willingly support her man and ready to go extra mile to see that they succeed.
One who sees a bigger picture of what marriage is about and willing to persevere to make it work.

Those who work hard will prosper [Proverbs ]. This brought to mind the washing of feet that Jesus bathed His disciples [Johnff]. Jesus humbled Himself, took the position of a servant and served His followers dutifully. Washing of feet was a mean job for people of low cedar.
In some cultures, slaves performed this function. But Christ did it to demonstrate the quality of leadership His disciples must possess. Jesus was the only leader who served and died for His subjects. In our world, the slaves and commoners serve the king; go to war to defend and die for the king and His kingdom. But Jesus went to the cross to pay the price of our sin that mankind could not pay. The Helpmate by May Sinclair.

Thanks for the wisdom and insight. This was very good to me! Great article!!!!! Now to walk daily as a Helpmate without feeling frustrated or not heard. Wondering what God says about husbands helping their wives or is it only women they are designed to be helpmeets?
Are husbands only on the receiving end? I feel you my sister. Communicate to him in a very loving way what you need as his wife. Begin to praise God in advance for the outcome that you desire before you see it. Remember Mark I so needed to hear this.
