I see a lot of divorce and separation status ...
What is the reason all this happened?
I believe that God does not allow divorce case.
But there may be some reason this all happened ...
First of all, no matter what view one takes on the issue of divorce, it is important to remember Malachi 2:16: “I hate divorce, says the LORD God of Israel.” According to the Bible, marriage is a lifetime commitment. “So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate” (Matthew 19:6). God realizes, though, that since marriages involve two sinful human beings, divorces are going to occur. In the Old Testament, He laid down some laws in order to protect the rights of divorcees, especially women (Deuteronomy 24:1-4). Jesus pointed out that these laws were given because of the hardness of people’s hearts, not because they were God’s desire (Matthew 19:8).
Does God allow it that those partners beat each other, that the partners cheat on each other, that parents have more influence than the partner, that a partner has a sick view on sex (refusing sex to extrem fetishes), that someone marrys a non-believer, that the partner looks after women wearing e.g. tight leather-tops, that one partner suppresses the other, that "ego" comes before the partner, that everyday-routine kills romantic feelings?
The more interesting question is: Who has the hardened heart in such a marriage? The victim or the abuser? Who is ultimately sinning by applying for divorce?
Well said SImon,
God does have limits and while His grace is very large, He will divorce us....
Jer 3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.
A harlot is a person sowing seeds across two rulers in their lives, Jesus and Satan....we cannot and must not do this.....See studies of whoredom http://spiritualsprings.org/ss-693.htm
Some of us divorced have suffered terrible tragedies....because Satan tries hard to destroy Christian marriage..
According the Bible, Satan prowls around like a lion looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8), but many times, he probably doesn’t have to do that much. I wonder if sometimes Satan sits back and laughs at us.
Marriage can be extremely messy. As sinners we can do dumb things in marriage—we hurt one another; we make false assumptions and then miscommunicate; we manipulate or say mean things to our spouse; we think less about serving and more about being served. We don’t always follow God’s Word or advice from godly leaders. We put our hopes in the world or each other more than we put hope in God.
We don’t need Satan to ruin our marriage. We do plenty of unhelpful thingson our own to ruin our marriages. I’m sure Satan enjoys having a front row seat, watching our folly and foolishness.
God does not want that to happen as you mentioned above Simon, because God loves us
The problem is people easily get bored and too follow our desires.
There is never enough, hearts are changed after their son, also busy.
God wants the best in marriage.
"Above all, love each other deeply, Because love covers over a multitude of SINS." - 1 Peter 4:8
This is a very IMPORTANT life verse for marriage Because marriage is a Unification of two Sinners. No one is perfect in a marriage. There will be times that's a husband or wife may file each other, mess up, or do something hurtful. It is IMPORTANT to remember God's definition of love and know that loving each other deeply Those cans cover all SINS. This verse reminds us the true power of love!
Thanks n God Bless
I think might also include financial issues, and feminism.
Thank you Simon because people are quick to make comments such as those until it comes knocking at the door of their marriage. People have no idea what a person is experiencing in their marriage. So before using scripture to bash brothers and sisters in Christ marital status pray for them instead. And yourself while you are at it because you have no idea what your marriage will end up like. Again thank you Bro Simon and God bless.
I think no one likes divorced but they just only a victim of the our enemy. Relationship is the main target of Satan. Satan wanted to be broken home and not to be happy. Human being are lack of wisdom and strength to handle all the differences and uniqueness of each person and being self centered, selfish and greedy. That are the reason of divorced around. Sins are the reason to separated us!
Well said Ms ML , but some of our in marriage difficulties give up too easily....
It was too common in Jesus day, hence His condemning divorce for trivial reasons
We should love our partners whatever and however we can, as long as they stay close to us....
A good read at Hosea is a great idea, is an allegory of Jesus treating us in marriage
Ho 11:8 ¶ How shall I give thee up, Ephraim?
Indeed Ms. ML
Because marriage reflects the relationship between Christ and the Church Eph 5:25.
Because marriage reflects the person of God Gen 1:27. Male and female are both made in the image of God, and a child in a good marriage experiences first hand the beauty and benefits of manly and womanly impact on his or her life...
We need to be strong in faith and pray marriage ...
When a young couple gets married, what responsibility do the parents of that couple have... any? Again, I'm speaking primarily about young couples. When the father of the bride walks his daughter down the aisle, is he basically saying; "Here is my daughter, I bring her to you and she is worthy to be married. She will make a good wife and mother."? Or is he hiding a multitude of sins in his heart knowing full well, based on his own marriage and the raising of that daughter, that this young lady is completely unready and unsuitable to be a wife and mother? And of course, the same goes for the young man as well.
It's as if most parents are so anxious to get their son or daughter out of the house, they are plenty willing to keep their collective mouths shut concerning the heartache they know is sure to come. This is where I see the greater sin!
If parents would wake-up to their responsibility, many young people would more carefully consider their life partner.
