The Bible says that God hates divorce. Like you, I know lots of divorced people, and children whose parents have divorced. Divorce is UGLY, PAINFUL AND BRUTAL. Rutgers University just released a study that shatters many myths about divorce, and it is a study worth reading.
Although divorce, in some cases, is the only choice, many times the decision to get a divorce is made rashly, without considering the court costs, the ripping apart of children through custody fights, the loss of the house, the alienation of grandchildren from their grandparents, the psychological and emotional toll, and the long-term, life-long effects on all parties involved. Instead, couples kid themselves with the many myths about divorce, such as “the kids will bounce back quickly” or “lessons I’ve learned will make my second marriage stronger.”
I have seen the damage and wreckage left in the wake of divorce, and I understand why God hates it.
If you have gone through a divorce or are children of divorce, Jesus forgives, heals and restores. If you are thinking about getting a divorce, please reconsider.
