A multitude of scripture speaks to the advantages of singularity, just as much as they do to the advantages of marriage. Perhaps the most encouraging, is this: "Let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing" [James 1:4].

God in this moment is forming you to your greatest version while simultaneously crafting your mate to exceed the expectations of what you want by providing you with exactly what He wills.

If we were to forgo patience (steadfastness) than that passage would read differently: "Don't let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be imperfect and incomplete, possessing nothing." That's a little discouraging, I'd rather it read like the original.
