Divorce Affair

Is It Lawful For A Man To Divorce His Wife? Check Mark 10 : 1 - 12

Our Lord Jesus Christ made us to understand that, in the beginning, God didn't give room for divorce. Jesus made this known while responding to a question raised by some pharisees that came to tempt Him, " Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? Jesus replied by asking them what Moses commanded them as far as the issue was concerned. They replied Jesus Christ that Moses allowed them to fill a bill of divorcement and put away their wives.

Our Lord Jesus Christ made them to understand that Moses allowed them to put away their wives because of the hardness of their hearts and that from the beginning of the creation, it was like that, that means, divorce was not in the plan of God for married man and woman, it was man-made plan. History revealed that that during the era of Moses, the married men knew that they couldn't divorce their wives, they knew that marriage was until death put asunder, for this reason, most men opted to murdering their wives so that that they can have opportunity to marry another one. When Moses knew about this devilish act, instead of them killing their wives, he gave them option of filling bill of divorcement and put away their wives.

Jesus Christ explained further that, what therefore God had joined together, let no man put asunder and whosoever shall put away his wife or her husband and marries another, has committed adultery.

One can deduce from the above episode that, marriage supposed to be till death put asunder. Therefore, husband and wife should always try as much as possible to resolve their differences, they should not let their issues degenerate to the point of divorce, because, divorce was not in the original plan of God for married couples.

Mind you, every marriage has its own challenges, it takes the grace of God to sustain family. Husband and wife should learn how to forgive each other, so that they can sustain their marriage.

I pray that God will uphold your marriage, in the name of Jesus Christ.
