ARE YOU CONSIDERING DIVORCEMENT OR HAVE YOU BEEN DIVORCED? Please read carefully and the Lord restore or save that marriage from collapsing.
ONCE you married, you have signed a Bond (until death do you path, is an oath taken, “1 Corinthians 7:39 The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord.”) If you divorce, none of you will REMARRY until one person dies.
The book of Genesis provides an image of the ideal marriage: One man. One woman, in a one-flesh relationship, for life. Anything less, anything more is not marriage. In marriage two individuals, who once lived as “me,” come together as “we” in one flesh and one life. No earthly bond can match the intimacy of this divinely sanctioned union.
