Divorce-Proofing Your Marriage

No matter how challenging your marriage is, you can find help. Discover potential marriage separators, and do what you can to avoid them in your relationship. Mark 10:2–10 ESV 2 And Pharisees came up and in order to test him asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” 3 He answered them, “What did Moses command you?” 4 They said, “Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce and to send her away.” 5 And Jesus…

40+ Questions to Ask Before (and During) Marriage

40+ Questions to Ask Before (and During) Marriage I recently began premarital counseling with a young couple who is engaged. In order to help them think through various important aspects of their marriage, I presented them with the list of questions below. However, these are simply a starting point for conversation and are not limited to those who are currently engaged. Even if you’ve been married for many years, I encourage you to spend time answering these questions with your…

Don’t Let Your Children Hinder Your Marriage

While children are one of God’s greatest gifts, a subtle yet dangerous trap is for parental demands to hinder marital unity.  In every stage of parenting, the demands are significant.  The amount of care, attention, affection, time, and resources that the tiniest members of your family require can be stifling. If not careful, a blessing from the marriage will take priority over the marriage. After you have experienced the first sleepless night of parenting, your entire world changes.  To be…

Is There Marriage in Heaven?

People wanted to know what Jesus believed about the status of marriage in heaven. Jesus emphasized that what we receive in heaven will be greater than what we take with us to heaven. Mark 12:18-27 18 And Sadducees came to him, who say that there is no resurrection. And they asked him a question, saying, 19 “Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies and leaves a wife, but leaves no child, the man must take the widow and…

Jesus Is for Your Marriage

Jesus was never married, but he created marriage.  So, when he speaks on the issue, we should listen.  A group of jealous religious leaders were always in opposition to Jesus – seeking a way to expose him and trap him with his words.  They once asked him when it was lawful to divorce a spouse.  In that moment, Jesus unashamedly clarifies that people were created as either distinctly male or distinctly female, and God’s design from the beginning has always…

Avoiding Divorce

Matthew. 5:31-32 While divorce is permitted in the Bible, it is never promoted in the Bible. Learn what Jesus had to say about those considering dissolving a marriage union. Preliminary Considerations Divorce is not the unforgivable sin. Just because a sin can be forgiven does not mean that it should be casually committed. Shaming a person for a divorce is not honoring to God or helping anyone else. Biblical Expectations (5:31-32) The Original Law (5:31) God’s original provision for divorce…
