Divorce! Does It Mean God Did Not Ordained The Marriage?

Every day we see and hear stories of the number of divorces taking place all over the world.

There are even some sad stories of couples whom for just the first three months of marriage,

they begin to experience treats of divorce.

It is recorded that some marriages did not even last for more than two months. the question is;

what is the cause of this thing called divorce? does it mean God did not destined both couple to be

together? or they have missed it somewhere along the line. Is it their inability to handle problems arising in the

Marriage Knowing fully well that problems are bound to arise?.

Brothers/Sisters, please read Matthew 5:32, Jesus himself talks about the only reason where divorce is exusable.

Pride and a poor relationship with God on both ends leads to divorce. If the husband loves God sincerely, and so does the wife sincerely, they would definitely love each other like Christ loves the church (body of Christ). Don't mean to get all spiritual/religous but I can promise you that a relationship founded on the love of God will never see the face of divorce.

Sometimes, a divorce doesn't always mean that the marriage wasn't meant to be. My friend attends a church where the pastor and his wife a looong time ago actually got divorced and for two years, its like God punished them as they went out trying to find other mates. Every relationship they ended up in was failure upon failure. Cut a long story short, after two years, they got back together and have been married happily since then (1985). They are a force to be reckoned with, formed a ministry and help married couples avoid divorce.

Here is their story below:

Those of you who are married, please understand that the devil has been trying to attack the covenant of marriage now as marriage has no value in society and people are becoming jaded. You all need to love each other, raise each other, protect each other, pray together and stand strong like a fortress fighting off anything and anyone who tries to pull you apart.

Cool

His wife was not a witch. When you start calling your wife a witch, marriage done finish be that.

A friend of mine once told me that he saw his wife to be by revelation

in a dream. And when he saw her physically he immediately recognise

her as the lady he saw in his dream, without wasting time he said,

God has done it.

He proceeded to get married to her, but within a few years,

after giving birth to two children, he discovered that the wife was a witch. and today

they are no more married.

Now what do you have to say about that? are they not supposed to continue in marriage

as christians?. for the Bible says: what God Has joined together let no man put asunder.

It is understood that divorce happen for so many reasons, but my question is that

when will the problem of divorce come to an end?. and what can be the necessary

solution to reunite a divorced marriage?.

Well said Sissy!

A pastor won't tell you more than this. He will only add the fact that both of you should be born again and understand each other. Some pastors even mislead by match-making the wrong people e.g persons of same pry and sec temperament, just cos they are desperate and at last they won't be able to cope.

This is true but vice versa.

Vigilance, time and closeness could go a long way in eradicating this (although Christianity forbids closeness) .

The moment we marry due to the outward qualities, we are not final destination called DIVORCE. Show me a couple that marry because of the You in You and I will show you a marriage that can never be dismantle by any force.

Some men hide their real character in order to get a lady once they succeed in having you they show their true colours some of which the lady can't just take and hence it leads to divorce.

Couldn't have said it better myself Sissy. People just rush into things and they are not mature enough to be married. Some shouldn't have even been married in the first place.

divorces happen because of so many differences that's are irreconcilable between the parties involved. i think mostly it wasn't mean to be in the first place, cox i personally believe that a marriage rooted in God's vineyard will last no matter the obstacles the couple will face. and with so many instantaneous drive through marriages happening, i would say people marry out of so many wrong reasons and have wild expectations, so when those reasons and wild expectations are unmet, they seek the divorce route. some folks are just immature and irresponsible to be married in the first place therefore, they cant handle martial problems.

In my own opinion whether God ordained d marriage or not depends on both parties 2 it. Believin a marriage is ordained is lyk expectin manna 4rm heaven(literarily), jst because he did it den doznt mean he wld do it again he, same way, jst bcoz the bible doznt record divorce doesnt mean all d marriages were ordained.
