    This is a difficult piece of scripture to comprehend. What it does say to me is that it is best to build a good relationship with a Christian/believer. Married life is a partnership with your spouse and is truly enhanced if you both include God into the partnership.

    Marriage is also about sharing and not being selfish. Being able to share the love of God between us as a married couple has truly enhanced our life and marriage. There are many challenges in life in 2013, which make marriage difficult and society has made it easy to just give it up.

    I thank God for his love and the gift of a wonderfull wife, who I must care for and continue to develop a relationship with. I pray that God continues to bless our lives together and enhances our love for him.

    With divorce approaching one in three, people don’t like to spend much time thinking about the subject matter of divorce in the Bible. Paul sights a few factors to consider on the matter of divorce, but I believe there are many more factors that have been left unsaid.

    We know that a marriage is initiated with a covenantal promise before God, but its is maintained through the loving relationship of the partners. With no loving relationship there is not much of the marriage left. We know that God hates divorce Malachi 2:16 but we also know that God wants us to live in peace.

    In short, marriage should not be entered into lightly and neither should divorce.
