Don’t Believe in Divorce? It Doesn’t Matter

    Awesome – I like your rewording of the quote/idea. I have written very similar posts multiple times in my blog – after seeing social media friends post and share quotes along the same lines (divorce is not an option). Like you, I have posted about you have to think about both parties involved (then there are some situations where divorce is the best option: abuse for example). Unlike you, I feared divorce was going to happen to me (We hadn’t been married for two years and during a fight, my ex threatened divorce and taking my daughter – full custody. I stayed in my marriage because of fear).

  2. I agree 100% with you. I would say most people would not believe in divorce. We didn’t get married to get divorced of course but a marriage takes two and when one person is not willing to put in an effort- divorce is the only option! Thank you for all your posts!

  3. I am still in the process of getting divorced. Recently my husband expressed public discontent on Instagram that our divorce trial was continued to November (btw, both of our daughters follow him on Instagram). His language was interesting: “Someday I’ll finally be divorced. Today is not the day.” Isn’t he married to someone? Aren’t WE getting divorced?

  4. One of the reasons why considering divorce was difficult for me (and my ex, as well) was our Christian faith. As reality started to hit me, I pored over the bible verses that deal with marriage and divorce, dismayed that they were telling me that God does not allow divorce. God hates divorce, even. When I proposed divorce to my wife, she looked down her nose at me and told me that I was not a Christian if I was even considering divorce. Divorce was not an option.

      I would expect that would cause such inner turmoil. What a rough position.

      • When it came down to it, I had to think about what Jesus may have been saying when he said that divorce was only acceptable when the spouse has been unfaithful. He didn’t define “unfaithful”.. and I realized that unfaithful does not necessarily mean the other has had an affair or has slept with someone else.

    Nobody believes in “bad things that happen to other people” (divorce being one)… until it happens to them!

  6. It’s easy for them to say until it happens, where you don’t have any other choice. It’s disheartening when they say, “Just move on.” You can never really feel it until you go through it yourself and that changed you.

  7. Absolutely. You can believe whatever you want but then you find that it doesn’t matter what you believe, and you have to face something you never thought could happen to you.
