President Spencer W. Kimball said: “Young women should plan and prepare for marriage and the bearing and rearing of children. It is your divine right and the avenue to the greatest and most supreme happiness” (Ensign, Nov. 1978, p. 103).
President Kimball also counciled President Spencer W. Kimball said: “I tell young women … that they should do all in their power to make themselves attractive physically in dress and grooming, mentally in being knowledgeable on many subjects, spiritually in being responsive, emotionally in being genuine and worthy” (“Marriage Is Honorable,” in Speeches of the Year, 1973 [Provo: Brigham Young University Press, 1974], pp. 261–62).
I think the hardest thing about being a grown up is realizing that life is not like the shows you watch on TV life is not perfect things don't always work out perfectly or sometimes not even like you thought they would. That is why this lesson is so important to remind us that when life is not "perfect" you can turn to your Father in Heaven and he will guide you through the hard times. He will give you the answers you need to make your life the best it can be! Council with Him all your decisions big or small and accept His answers.
