It’s not people who put themselves together—it’s God Who puts them together. Mark 10:9 says, “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” Marriage is permanent. Marriage is “till death do us part.”
Show me two kids who consider divorce as an option, and I’ll show you two young people who have a greatly increased potential for a break-up of their marriage. You say, “Well, we got divorced because we had problems.” I have news for you. People who stay married and people who get divorced have basically the same kinds of problems. The difference is not in the problems they have; the difference is in commitment.
Just get rid of the idea of divorce. Just take your scissors and cut that word out of your dictionary. Divorce is the only game in which both players lose.
