Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing and obtaineth favor of the Lord – Proverbs 18:22.
Being a wife comes with benefits, and most of all, the relationship is pleasing in the eyes of God. When the relationship is according to God’s principles, you can ask God to bless it and receive the blessings of the Lord.
Countless of people are living with someone that is not their husband. They can’t ask God to bless the relationship when it turns sour because it’s not right in the eyesight of God. Sadly, many have lived out of wedlock, and when the person dies, they don’t receive the benefits that a wife would receive.
Your name on the signature lines means a lot; it will keep you from losing what you should receive. You also have to be cautious, even if you’re married, to ensure you receive what you should receive as a spouse.
Couples today sometimes have personal checking and saving accounts without their spouse being the beneficiary if they should die. If your spouse has a checking account and your name is not on the account, you will have to go through different hoops to get what is rightly yours.
The same thing goes for you; if you have a checking or saving account and your spouse is not included on your account, he will not be able to access your account and sometimes will not receive what should be theirs if they don’t have the right documentation.
Just because one is married does not mean one will receive what one should receive if your name is not on the documentation. Many have paid thousands of dollars to lawyers to get their homes because the husband’s name was the only one on the documentation.
Some have had difficulties receiving what is theirs because they used their maiden name rather than their married name on property and businesses. This will cause issues and problems if your spouse dies. According to the Word of God, you’re no longer two but one. Everything your spouse has belongs to you, and everything you have belongs to him in case of your death.
To receive what belongs to you, make sure the documentation has your name on it. So you know, if the spouse has trouble receiving what belongs to her, a living-in lover will not receive anything, and they can’t fight in court for what belongs to them because they were not married.
Satan has influenced many to live-in rather than marry because he knows this is out of the will of God. He knows you can’t pray for the relationship because it’s wrong. He can bring all types of havoc in the relationship, and you will not have God backing you up.
Marriages that are right before God have a covenant with God, male, and female. They will have a blessing upon their marriage because they followed God’s instructions. If the spouse dies, God will fight against anything and anyone trying to keep you from receiving what belongs to you as a wife.
If you want your children to receive your funds from your account upon your death, make sure they are listed as “Pending on death.” That also goes with your spouse. Although you’re married, make sure you have documentation with your name on it.
No matter what it is, if you’ll accumulated it while married, then it belongs to you, and you shouldn’t have to fight for it. Documentation is cruel in receiving the benefits you should receive as a wife. Don’t just assume just because you’re married, you will receive.
