If you are a Christian and you ask yourself “can marriage be saved”, the answer is YES. I know many Christians will not believe this, but the Bible says that the reason for a person’s faith being broken is because of an enemy (here on earth). That means that you as a Christian are in danger and you should find ways to protect your marriage from an impending divorce. You may not see that your partner is having a personal problem, so you assume it can be overcome. This is NOT true! Your Christian marriage can only be saved if you as Christian commit to never leave your partner because of your religious beliefs.
The statistics for marriages breaking up are staggering. In fact, statistics show that out of every two marriages, there will be some form of divorce involved within the first five years of the marriage. Because of this, more Christians are beginning to realize that they need to devote more of their time to saving their marriages and to stop believing in the concept that God wants them to be divorced. They need to come to a place where they understand that the bible teaches that when two married couples get married, they become one flesh and therefore, they are permanently and inseparably joined and cannot be separated from each other.
Statistically, one out of every three Christian marriages will end in divorce. This is not a reflection of the Christian culture, but it is rather just the way that God wants his people to be. There is nothing in the Bible which teaches you how to cope with infidelity, or with any other type of unfaithfulness. If you are seeking counseling for your particular situation, and you are struggling with whether or not your marriage can be saved, then I highly encourage you to seek the advice of a trained Christian marriage counselor who will be able to help you explore all of your options.
However, even after a Christian couple has come to the knowledge that divorce is inevitable, they still have options available to salvage their marriage. They can choose to work on their relationship with God and with each other, or they can simply remain married and hope that God will save them from divorce. Although it is much more difficult to remain married when you know you are now having problems, it is important to give God time to work things out. Many Christian couples have discovered that staying married and working through their issues was the best thing for them, and their relationship with God made them stronger and more committed to each other.
Although it might seem impossible to save a marriage after one partner has decided to divorce, there are a number of things that you can do to make things a little easier on both you and your partner. First of all, try to figure out if there are any underlying issues within your marriage that are leading to the divorce. It might be that your partner has become frustrated with you, or that there are just certain things that you have been doing that have been frustrating your partner. By figuring out what these issues are, it is much easier to try and resolve them.
If you are the one who has decided that it is time to end your marriage, it is also important to give your partner the space he or she needs to move on without you. The easiest way to do this is to agree that you will not be communicating with each other on a regular basis or to only speak to one another on an emotional level. Although this might be a hard pill to swallow at first, it will allow you both to heal and to focus on your lives together. If you work at this for a few weeks, your partner will likely begin to miss being with you, and will look forward to speaking to you more often.
