Are you married or seeking to be married?

To avoid divorce is not to have divorce in our heart.It should never be an option.Constant communication between the couple really helps a lot.Make God the center of the marriage because he is bigger than all the many circumstances in our life..

I have always heard, and strongly believe that the couple who prays together, stays together. Also good communication as well as keeping God first.

Get your eyes off this world. That is how.

Make sure the man loves you, is the marrying kind and does not have a problem with commitment. Then once you find this out work like* & * to keep him happy and satisfied. In other words, keep your end of the deal. This still does not guarantee you will not divorce. There are no guarantees in life. Jump in there, take a chance and hope for the best.

Stay close to the Lord in your walk as a Christian, AND live out your role as a Christian spouse as it is described in scripture.
---Madison on 8/26/07

Focus in on the Lord! If you make your focual point the Lord, you will treat your spouce right since He states to treat others as you want to be treated. (Even if your spouce doesn't treat you right.) Make your spouce a part of your plans, not just someone to work around, or treat you spouce as someone who gets in the way.

By the way, I've been married 42 years, so I'm telling you this from experience.

I totally agree with Ralph77. No sure guarantee. You can be a committed Christian but you cannot guarantee your partner's decisions in life. Mariage takes two and it is always a risk. I guess we just need to make decisions based on the facts on our hands and trust God for how it turns out. seble5457

Prayer is the most important thing.
Marriage is NOT a 50/50 proposition. It takes 100% on both partners part. Remember, your vows are not only to your spouse but also to God.
We celebrated 24 years in June and I love him more now then the day we wed. God bless you.

I HIGHLY recommend the book (or video) "The Five Love Languages" by Gary Chapman (do a Google search to find it on the Internet). Mr Chapman has discovered a very simple concept to help us cause each other to feel valued and reassured of the other's love and respect. Every married couple needs this teaching!

Pray...Pray...Pray your way through every day in every aspect of your marriage...I was married for 20 WONDERFUL years and divorce was never an option for us in any shape or form....I would still be happily married if God had not called him Home....start and end each and every day saturated in prayer and grow together in His Word....God is your only defense in this imperfect world!

, marriage vows are a great start, but remember that marriages must be maintained. continue to do all the things that will make him (or her) enjoy being with you.

The only sure fire way to avoid divorce is to avoid marriage. No matter how committed you are, no matter how closely you follow biblical principals in your marriage, you still can't control the other individual you are married to. It's always a gamble.

Decide that it's not an option.
