    Marriage Vows

    It's strange that "75% of people who have this experience are women" and yet women are twice as likely to break up a marriage as men. I wish that divorce laws reflected marriage. Only if the marital promise is broken should a divorce be permissible - and only by the injured...

    But Im Getting One

    I'm sure I'll be  harassed for this, but it's true. I was raised in a Christian home, and though I did not marry a Christian, when we were married we were both very much committed to working anything out and never getting a divorce. Fast forward 3 years and we are separated...

    Til Death

    Til death do us part that is a vow not to be taken lightly, I believe that when you get married it is through good and bad and that is why young people shouldn't get married from 18-25 that period is for you to discover yourself and be on your own alone to be independent stand on...

    My Thoughts On Divorce

    "Untill death do us part" How could you say that and take it back? How could you make a commitment and break it, for such a silly reason? "We fell out of love." NO! When your married, your family, and you DO NOT leave your family. Siblings fight, parents...

    I Do Not Believe In Divorce

    Today, my cousin told me how her and her husband wanted a divorce. It got me thinking. When we say I do. We are promising our lives to this person. Divorce takes the commitment out of marriage. We are promising our life time to another person and they are promising their life...

    It Makes Marriage Pointless

    The whole point of marriage is a LIFETIME relationship.  If you want a temporary relationship, just get a boyfriend or girlfriend.  When you make the vow, you say "until DEATH be us part," not "until divorce be us part."  Some argue that divorce...

    A reader emailed me last night saying she was

    recently invited to her friend's 'divorce party.' She wanted my opinion on the new trend. Divorce party: a celebration of a broken vow. "Hooray! We quit on ourselves and each other! Now let's dance!" I'd heard of these things before, but I almost hesitated to believe the...

    Marriage Is Pairing Up To Travel Along An Unknown Road With No Clear Destination.

    I accept that alcoholism or substance abuse is grounds for divorce. Or a felony conviction, especially if the sentence is more than a year of time on the inside. Repeat domestic violence even in the absence of medical issues. Or a single episode of domestic violence that puts a...

    For me it has nothing to do with religion.

    It has to do with the fact that marriage is meant to be a life time commitment and when I made that commitment I realized that my vows are law in my life. I don't like the fact that people use divorce like the only option when I see it as a last resort in abuse cases only. I...

    I honestly feel like it's just

    for people who are too lazy to try and fight for their marriage. Divorces are used so heavily these days it's almost becoming the normal thing. Kids these days are looking foward to second and third husbands and stuff like that. It's ridiculous and lazy.

    Divorce Is A Sin By Biblical Definition

    The Bible says that if you know to do good, and don't do it that is a sin. We know if God hates something it is not good. In Malachi 2:16 God says that He hates divorce. So again to do something God hates is doing something not good which is sin. Jesus gives one and only one...
