When Marriage Fails

God hates divorce because it denies the sanctity of marriage (Mal 2:16, Mat 19:4-8). He allows us to divorce (but doesn't require it), however, only when our spouse breaks the marriage covenant (Mark 10:11-12, Mat 5:32, Mat 19:9). God permits divorce by our unrepentant spouse if we don't encourage it. The Bible also makes clear that if we divorce for reasons other than unfaithfulness we're called to remain celibate (if we're unclear, we should submit to our spiritual leaders and community). These are high standards! So, if we've failed, know God forgives and gives us the power to obey.
