This is what marriage used to be, it was viewed as something that was not to be taken lightly. No longer. Now, many people meet someone, discover that they “click”, and get married; a few years down the road, maybe after a couple kids come along, they hit a bump in the road. Instead of getting counseling or even just trying to work through it on their own they take the easy way out: divorce. “Half a century ago, divorce was almost unheard of; marriage was meant to last until death, not until the going got tough.” Why is it that marriage is not as important anymore? Some people might say that it’s because all things tend toward entropy or disorder. But why do all things tend toward disorder? I believe that it’s because we are sinful human beings in need of some serious help. Revising the no-fault divorce laws might help in decreasing the divorce rates but it doesn’t get at the heart of the issue: that often people who want to end their marriage don’t want to admit that they are in the wrong as well as their spouse. They don’t want to go to the trouble of working through it, they just want the easy way out, abandoning ship. If they would get counsel and work through the problem their marriage would be stronger than before.
