The divorce rates are high, probably because it’s easier to get a divorce, and because people aren’t willing to make amends. Marriage is work. It’s a better for worse kind of union. An argument or arguments shouldn’t send people to divorce court, it has to be something drastic to cause one to want a divorce, God doesn’t like divorce and He would rather we try our very best to hold the marriage together.
Another reason why marriages fade away have to do with the reasons for marrying. Some people marry because of physical attraction. That is something that most likely won’t last. The physical can fade and when it does then that person will search for the next physical thing. Some marry for money, if that happens, the person with the money will lose the person if the money is no longer there. If one doesn’t marry for love then the changes of the union holding together will be slim. People can learn to love one another and that can take some time.
Couples who have different views may find themselves at war with one another. Until there’s mutual understanding, the marriage will continuously fade, and in time it will be dissolved. It’s important that praying couples continue to pray, reading the bible, and taking time to connect with one another. The best thing that married couples can do is to go to bed without being angry. Set aside the differences and make up before you both lay your heads on the pillow.
It’s time to build stronger marriages and love endlessly. Sometimes we go through deep trials and we consider giving up but it may not be a good idea. Trying to work out a marriage is a good thing, some marriages can’t be saved, and others can be salvaged through dedication. Both parties have to want it. You never know what you will find if you leave the marriage. You could find yourself in worse shape if you did. Pray for your marriage and allow God to guide you through it.
