Colossians 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
Spend more time in the things of God than thinking about marriage. Bible says in Colossians 3:1-4:
 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.  Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.  For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.  When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
This is not to say that you should abandon or neglect family issue or give priority over church matters than family matters, no! But, let your focus be on heaven. God should come first, after that your family, then your ministry or church. Don't be overburdened or go into sorrow because of marriage or because you want to get married. Seek heaven first and pray for its righteousness.
I am married to Jesus Satan leave me alone should be your song. Don't yield to Satan to discourage you from your focus on Jesus. It is only then you will get guidance, peace and reward from Jesus. Commit your marriage plan to Jesus to work it out for you.
 Delight thyself also in the Lord ; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord ; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.  And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the Lord , and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
Adam did not pray to God for marriage and God knew he needed it, hence He gave him a wife. You ask Him for a marriage partner and He will give you. To know that it is God that gave you your marriage partner will give you peace of mind in the future. The flesh cannot prosper where spirituality is. In righteousness you will get your husband. In righteousness you will get your wife.
Don't succumb to parents or family pressure. Commit your marriage or marriage plans into the hands of God and it will work out fine and perfectly. Amen!
Thought for the day:
If it is committed into the hands of God, it cannot go wrong.
Song for the day:
I am married to Jesus Satan leave me alone
Bible reading for the day:
