“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ Matthew 19:4
In the beginning God specifically created Adam and Eve for each other and his plan was for them to be together there entire lives and raise a family. Just the same with your spouse, God created you to be together, not just for a while but forever. Once you took your vows you made a covenant with God.
and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? Matthew 19:5
When you’re married, Two become one Flesh, not two people living separate lives coexisting. Your marriage has united you under God, every choice or decision is not your own, but a group decision. This is why divorce doesn’t seem logical to God, if Two become one Flesh then how can they separate?
So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate. Matthew 19:6
Why do people get divorced? Do they not understand the covenant they made under God? Do they not understand there spouse is a part of them and separation will be devastation? Marriage is a lifelong plan by God its not for a season.
However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. Ephesians 5:33
Love your wife as you love yourself, this is a great lesson to learn and probably if applied could have saved countless marriages. The reason marriages fail is when a spouse puts themselves first before the family. Love each other as Christ loves us and you will have a prosperous marriage as God intended.
I’m not judging or condemning anyone’s marriage, my hope to see families stay united and marriages to live as God intended “Two become One” in Jesus Name Amen
