would u stay in a unhappy marriage because the bible states divorce in wrong?
Well I would not give up at the first sign of trouble. I would do my best to make it work. I would also change my behaviour (if that was the problem) and suggest marriage counselling. If that didn’t work, I would have to seriously consider whether there was a future with my spouse.
The Bible was written a long time ago. I think there comes a point where you have to ask yourself if you will stay in a loveless marriage just because a Book written more than 2000 years ago says you should. In my case, the answer was no but I gave it my best shot. I was married for 20 years and the marriage was in serious trouble for the last 8 of those years. I did everything I could think of to make it work. But I was the only one working to fix it because my ex buried his head in the sand all the time.
Sometimes you have to do what is best for you and your kids and the best thing for me was to draw a line under my marriage. That way I would have a shot at finding lasting happiness with someone else.
