This is why a man is to leave his father and mother and stick with his wife, and they are to be one flesh. Genesis 2:24 CJB
The Pharisees trying to push Yeshua (Jesus) over the edge asked about divorce in Matthew 19:4 “Is it permitted for a man to divorce his wife on any ground whatever?” CJB
Divorce is a common practice in our society. Movies, television, radio, and the internet are filled with ways to end a marriage. Many programs will advocate marriage as a waste of time. Our society is working overtime to push marriages over the edge and destroy our homes, happy or not, as they attempt to redefine marriage calling God a liar.
Years ago, to get divorced in America, a person needed to give a reason for a divorce. Now in most states a couple may get divorced based on the no-fault laws simply put we have ‘Irreconcilable difference’. (Few things truly match the definition of an irreconcilable difference.)
Marriage is very important! And was designed by GOD to be wonderful and life long! With God’s design for marriage in mind, it’s important to resist the forces that work against the will of God in our marriages. We need to divorce-proof our lives!
What things can be done to divorce-proof a marriage? How do those things line of with the Word of GOD? Or since divorce is permitted according to Moses (see Deut 24:1) is divorce proofing a marriage a waste of time?
(Modern day ‘irreconcilable differences’ to ancient days ‘whatever’ your version may read for every cause.)
