Marriage is a union of two people who have vowed to remain committed to each other for the rest of their lives. That is why, during the day of their wedding, they use vows to remain together, to have children together, to grow financially together, to grow old together etc. till death do them part. This is a very important part in everyone’s life with an exception of none.
These days, many couples are divorcing at a very high rate. Have you ever asked yourself why this is happening and what should be done? Getting an appropriate answer for this question is quite difficult. The Bible says “A man who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against his wife and a woman who divorces her husband and marries another man commits adultery”. Both a man and a woman should only get divorced when they become unfaithful to each other.
One Saturday morning, I received a call from my cousin Amanda saying that she was leaving her home forever. I immediately got into my car hurriedly and went to her place. When I got there, it was all chaos, everything was destroyed her beautiful home was no more. She broke into tears when she saw me and I hugged her just for her to feel better. Her husband Greg was also around so I called him to join us. Their kids went to play with their friends in the neighborhood.
She then narrated to me what had happened and I was very shocked. They had started a fight very early in the morning at around 5am and the main issue was finances. Her husband was fired from his job and the business they had started like 4 years ago was going down in terms of money and they had to close it down. Amanda started the fight threatening Greg that there was no way she could live in a home full of problems so she wanted a divorce. I told her that there was no way he could do that, Greg was stressed out so she had to uplift his mood and help him out build themselves again. She agreed after we talked for quite some time, even Greg seemed happy with the support she agreed onto.
Right now, the lovely couple own several restaurants around Houston and with these businesses, they are able to feed the whole family. Both of them gave their life to Christ and now they know what God has done in their lives. They have become very powerful in prayers and that is why their marriage has become now strong more than ever. You may be going through what Amanda and Greg did or you may be in a worse situation than this. You need not worry for God is waiting for you to mend your marriage for if God is present in your home, you will never lack anything, if you ask for help, and He will do that. By the end of the day, you will realize that your marriage life will never be the same again, your friends may even envy your life. Just stay in the Lord and He will do the rest.
