How can two people love each other, have a family, and then have divorced the next thing you know? Divorce is an unfortunate epidemic that has grown to outrageous statistics. God’s word says that He hates divorce but allows it because of the hardening of men’s and women’s hearts.

When I was young, divorce was considered taboo, and something looked down upon, and nowadays, everyone seems to be getting a divorce (including me, although I did not want it). Marriage was God’s plan, not anything else, because God knew divorce hurts! I understand the pain of going through a divorce; it is like ripping one flesh into two.  ~ Bill Greguska

Matthew 5:32  But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Better Pre-Marital Counseling Could Have Helped!

We were both about 37 when we got married. It was my first marriage and her second. It is hard to blend our lifestyles and raise the same boy in two distinctly different but loving styles. We had different ways of looking at the same things in life, and we saw this and other essential stuff on our honeymoon.

Yes, marriage is supposed to be until death do us part, but God knew that people’s hearts could harden. So He gave His people a way out. God hates divorce, and by all means, it should be the very last possible option. I fought to keep my marriage alive, even though it was excruciating.  I feared God more than my ex-wife or anyone else, but unfortunately, the marriage ended in divorce! ~ Bill Greguska
