Yesterday, I defined conviction as the act of being persuaded about a decision beyond any shadow of doubt. It is important that individuals who are engaged in a love relationship are not coaxed, cajoled, or forced into it. That way, they can take responsibility for fighting for the survival of their relationship where and when necessary, especially in the face of challenges.
Manipulating a person into embarking on a marital relationship with you can only work for a short period of time, not a lifetime. Hence, it is important that you shun manipulation. Don’t be the only one who is convinced about your marital relationship; give your intending spouse enough time to get the same conviction to journey with you forever, and neither should you be manipulated into a marital relationship by the conviction of your intending partner.
