Divorce is such an ugly word. Yes, I have been divorced but would never advocate it for anyone. Within the last few months, I have heard of Christian couples who are struggling in their marriage & may end up in divorce. This is wrong. We as believers need to be different than the rest of the world. We have fallen into Satan's trap and have become like the world in too many areas of our life. We need to turn to the Lord in repentance & begin to shine for the Lord. Marriage isn't always going to be easy but that doesn't mean to give up on it. I believe there is a saying that goes something like "If something is good, it is worth fighting for." God created marriage & found it good; therefore, it is worth fighting for. We as wives need to be helpmeets for our husbands. If we are true helpmeets for our husbands, we will be respectful, encouraging, & a joy to be around. We want our husbands to desire to come home & not dread it. We need to be sure to work on our character & attitude and not worry about trying to change our husbands. That is not our job. It is God's job to change our husbands if God feels that is what needs to be done.
