Here is something I would like you to consider:
I know personally the pain involved in going through a divorce. It is the worst pain I have experienced in my entire life.
I did not want the divorce, which is probably why it was so painful. Being in a problematic marriage was not a picnic at all, either, actually very gut-wrenching.
I tried to work things out until the very end, but my ex-wife gave up hope and trying.
Losing a wife and having a son have to deal with the separation and divorce was very hard on me. ~ Bill Greguska

Common but Illegitimate Reasons for Divorce
The Road To Divorce Needs Not To Be Even Considered!
“My spouse isn’t a Christian,” or “I wasn’t a Christian when I married my spouse.”
- Nowhere in the Bible is this seen as grounds for divorce. In 1 Corinthians 7:12-13 Paul very clearly urges men and women in such situations not to divorce their unbelieving spouse.
“We weren’t married in a church.”
- Matthew 19:6 renders this an illegitimate excuse when it says, “What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” Marriage is sanctioned by God and is not dependent on the context in which those vows were made. Regardless of where you were married or who married you, if you have made a covenant of marriage, the Lord expects you to keep it.
“I need to get out of this marriage for the sake of my kids.”
- Of course, a justifiable concern, but one that Paul does not neglect to address. In 1 Corinthians 7:14, he says, “For the unbelieving husband is made holy because of his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made holy because of her husband. Otherwise, your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.”
“My spouse is a huge disappointment.”
- “He is a loser (poor provider).” “She hasn’t taken care of herself physically.” “I would have never married this person if I had known what I was getting myself into.” “I deserve better.” Even the best of marriages may enter lulls where thoughts like these remain prevalent for periods. Marriage can be hard. Your spouse may grieve or disappoint you much. However, this is not a legitimate excuse to bolt.
“We are no longer in love.”
- If God commands us to love our enemies (Matthew 5:44),
