How does divorce affect kids? Divorce is a very difficult topic to discuss in the Christian community because no one wishes for it.

We have to be honest with ourselves so that we can realize that divorce can happen, whether we like it or not.

Nobody is praying to divorce their partner on the day they get married. God wants the best for us, and when we walk with him, that will lead us right.

For many years, Christians have been afraid to ask: Is it right to get a divorce? People have been asking what the Bible says about getting a divorce.

According to the Bible, the sole grounds for divorce are unfaithfulness and an affair. If your partner is not unfaithful but is violent, verbally or physically, you can choose to separate.

For every Christian married couple, God desires for them to be so close physically, emotionally, and spiritually that they are “one flesh.

When something so serious happens to them that they can no longer be “one,” their marital bond is shattered.

So many factors can lead to unhealthy marriages, and they are all the work of the devil.

Factors That Lead to Divorce in Marriage

  • Adultery: In the Bible, Jesus Christ mentions adultery as the main reason for a marriage to end. Matthew 19:9 says, “I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”
  • Addiction: Addictions have been the reason why so many marriages have ended in the past. Addiction can be in different forms, like gambling, drugs, or alcohol. Without treatment, addiction can destroy a marriage.
  • Abuse: Abuse also comes in different forms, like verbal, emotional, and physical. Your partner calling you names behind closed doors is also abuse. Some people and their partners bully them by hitting on them.
  • Abandonment: Abandonment can also come in different ways, like physically and emotionally. Is your partner ignoring things he or she has to do in the family? Are they not paying attention to your feelings and emotions?

Many churches don’t believe that it’s right for partners to divorce no matter what, but that’s wrong. Some people have been killed or emotionally damaged by their spouse because they are afraid of leaving the marriage.

Of course, it is important for partners to do their best to make sure that their marriage works out. Praying to God and handing everything to him is good because only he can change the heart of man.
