Publisher's Summary

Learn to live and date for more than marriage.

Many of you grew up assuming that marriage would meet all of your needs and unlock God's purposes for you. But God has far more planned for you than your future marriage. Not Yet Married is not about waiting quietly in the corner of the world for God to bring you "the one" but about inspiring you to live and date for more now.

If you follow Jesus, the search for a spouse is no longer a pursuit of perfection but a mutually flawed pursuit of Christ. He will likely write a love story for you different from the one you would have written for yourself, but that's because he loves you and knows how to write a better story. Trust him, and he will help you find real hope, happiness, and purpose in your not-yet-married life.

great book

Although i'm married, listening to this book helps me understand what It means to have a relationship. Good book for those not yet married encouraging them to be fruitful and loving through Gods eyes.

hmmm

I dont think someone who was dating their future partner at 27 and married by 29 can understand singleness in your 30s and 40s.

Just what I needed!

A relatable, honest, refreshing and encouraging book! Filled with biblical truth, and practical application on how to make the most of your singleness & preparing yourself for marriage. This book has encouraged me big time in my not yet married journey!

great points

What did you love best about Not Yet Married?

So many points Segal made in his book were relatable to me as a single, 26 year old Christian. Getting caught up in todays dating scene can feel frustrating and hopeless. Using many bible references Segal helps put anxieties to rest and reminds us to make the most of our single life. This audible was easy to listen to and I enjoyed every minute of it from start to finish.

Any additional comments?

Not a huge fan of the narrator, his voice just didn't go well with the tone of the book for me personally. Sounded like I was listening to a father discuss dating with his father.

Great book

As a not yet married young adult, I've had a high view of marriage, but maybe too high. This book showed me to not worry, trust God, and enjoy life instead of constantly having an "it's greener on the other side" thought

Adequate for an audio book 6 hours long

The reading was flat... The reader seemed to put effort but I couldn't tell where a chapter started or if there was any emphasis made by the writer. The author seems to be nagging or lecturing even... I like how he provided himself as an example

A must-read for anyone- in any season!

I love reading Marshall Segal’s articles on Desiring God, so when I found this title, I decided to give it a listen. I’m so thankful I did! I not only feel encouraged and more prepared for dating and marriage, but for the marriage of the Lord and His bride- the day in which we will finally arrive at eternity’s shore. Segal so wonderfully and gracefully redirected the reader’s focus on Jesus while giving Biblically sound advice on romantic relationships. I would recommend to anyone- young, old, single, dating, engaged, married, or complicated.

So Encouraging!

I love this book. I really was at a point feeling like my singleness had no purpose and this book encouraged and challenged me to look up from my circumstances and see where God put me and how I can have purpose in this season and be effective for The Kingdom of God. I highly recommended this to all of my single friends.

Every human being needs this book...<br />

This is a read that is needed in not only society but in schools, on the curriculum. It gives a clean, transparent talk through on not only marriage and dating but about self; about getting to know yourself through the eyes of our Creator- through God, through Jesus Christ. Marshall Segal has done an amazing job on navigating singles, dating, married etc through the maze of self recognition. I could essay this but I won't. Deep, intelligent read.
