What The Bible Says About Breakups, Divorce


Marriage was instituted by God in the garden of Eden when God created the first parents, Adam and Eve. He ordered them to multiply and fill the earth, a directive which has lead to the billions of people we are dwelling on earth these days.

Nowadays people enter into marriages but due to many temptations that are thrown in the way of families, they end up breaking up and resolve to enter to another marriages. Here is what the bible says about divorce;

Mark 10:1-12

And he left there and went to the region of Judea and beyond the Jordan, and crowds gathered to him again; and again, as his custom was, he taught them.

And Pharisees came up and in order to test him asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” He answered them, “What did Moses command you?” They said, “Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to put her away.” But Jesus said to them, “For your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment. But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.”

10 And in the house the disciples asked him again about this matter. 11 And he said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery against her; 12 and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”

According to the above verse, marriage is supposed to be a lifelong union. Comment, share and follow me for more christian views, thank you.
