Look Before You Leap

Regardless to how you feel about marriage and divorce, if you and your spouse are having marital problems, divorce may, or may not, be the best answer to your problems, but it is an option. Divorce is a serious legal action between a husband and a wife which dissolves a marriage and gives both ex-spouses the right to move on and live separate lives.

It is estimated that between 40 and 50 percent of all marriages in the United States end in divorce and the number of divorces actually increase with second and third marriages.

These are staggering numbers that should give anyone who is contemplating marriage the impetus to pause and ask themselves some serious questions. Look before you leap.

Ask yourself:

  • Why am I getting married?
  • Am I getting into this for the long haul?
  • Am I in love, or is this infatuation?
  • Do I really believe in the sanctity of marriage?
  • Do I really know the person I'm about to marry?
  • Is this the person I want to spend the rest of my life with?
  • If my spouse cheats, am I strong enough to get past it?

These are just some of the questions that should be answered by you and the person you are about to marry, and there are many more. You should answer these questions before, not after, you take your wedding vows.

First of all, a marriage is more than just a legal action. It has moral, social, and religious implications. When you marry, you make promises, before God, family, and friends, to stand as one with your spouse, through good times and bad times, for better or for worse, through sickness and health, and to love, comfort, honor each other til death do you part.

Wedding vows are much like a contract (actually they are a contract) and should never be taken lightly. Once married, both individuals should do everything to uphold their ends of the bargain, but as the statistics show, many people are finding divorce a much easier option than remaining in a marriage and working through difficult times.

Talking to someone may be a good idea before you get started on your wedding plans. Many churches offer pre-marital counseling and there are other organizations that offer marital consultations.

In other words, you should think long and hard about a marriage proposal before saying yes to it.
