Divorce Is Not an OPTION At All
Marriage (or wedlock) –it is a social union or legal contract between people that creates kinship. The definition of marriage varies according to different cultures, but is usually an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually intimate and sexual, are acknowledged. Such a union, often formalized via a wedding ceremony, may also be called matrimony.
The Bible says that Marriage was the first institution established by God in the book of Genesis, chapter 2. It is a covenant agreement, meant for life; therefore it must not be broken under any circumstance

Just as the Bible teaches us to enter into marriage carefully and reverently, divorce is to be avoided at all costs. Honoring and upholding the marriage vows brings honor and glory to God.
Divorce is not an option at all. It is a lame excuse from couples to get out from a marriage they never thought about and never wanted in the first place. It devaluates the true meaning of your covenant and with your vows upon wedding.
In show business, we can attest that divorce is radically practice. In fact, we can say that this is one of the many basis or standards that normal couples are clinging to. They follow what they saw or heard on television, radio and on what they’re getting on surfing the internet; divorce is much more a trend these days rather than an issue of moral values.
Matthew 19:6 says; “So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” is quite no longer true in this generation because even a paper-divorce paper can separate what God has joined together as one. People’s perspective of marriage is but a paper where you just need to sign and that you can just throw it anytime! Alas! They are just following the world…
Many marriages are needlessly failing because of lack of dynamics. Most couples, sadly to say, are ignorant on purpose because they are not willing to apply the time and spend the money to grow their relationships. When the relationship fails, they blame God. God does not save relationships, He saves individuals. It is on the couple’s part to nurture, to nourish and to water their relationship with love and respect; knowing each roles as husband and wife.

7 Tips On How To Save Your Marriage and Strengthen It
1. Above all, put God at the center of your marriage
Make Christ the center and the foundation of your life together. Good marriage actually takes three people: the husband, the wife — and God. Make sure of your commitment to Christ, and make His love the heartbeat of your marriage.
2.Love one another.
Love is the greatest of all. It gives new perspective in one’s relationship. He or she understands each other all the more if love exists.
3. Kill self—selfishness.
The beginning of dying to self is learning how to give. 1 Corinthians 13:5 “it [Love] is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”
4. Learn some relationship techniques. If you want fruit, you must learn and cultivate techniques.
Don’t stop learning something about your spouse. Don’t stop that little surprise that makes your heart skip a beat. As you grow old together, you will discover something new every morning.
5. His needs, her needs.
Understand your differences. Men and women differ in so many areas. One may go well with him but it may not to the other, so, just respect each other’s preferences.
6. Know each role as husband and wife according to the Bible.
Ephesians 5:25 “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
“Ephesians 5:22 “Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. “
7. Always pray.
The Family that prays together stays forever!
These seven necessities are the core foundation of a happy marriage. EVERYTHING in the relationship will ALWAYS have these seven ingredients in it.
“Evil desires, murder, almost any kind of crimes comes from a broken family; a family without a mother or a father.”-From the movie Courageous.

“Here’s the thing we need to recognize about conflict … 69 percent of all conflicts in a couple’s relationship is not solvable,” Mintle told CBN News. “So what is important is not that you resolve conflicts, but the way you talk about conflict.”
Yes, I strongly believe that divorce should not be an option of two conflicting couple since it doesn’t bring any good to the family: it just brings catastrophe. Instead, in every conflict, couples should take time in discussing the matter; be honest to their feelings.

Keep his decrees and commands, which I am giving you today, so that it may go well with you and your children after you and that you may live long in the land the LORD your God gives you for all time.
