“Divorce,” Divorce (2020)
Divorce can be among the most difficult decisions in life. There are many reasons why an individual may consider divorce, and there are no simple answers.
When men and women marry, they make solemn covenants with each other and with God. Every effort should be made to keep these covenants and preserve marriage. If a husband and wife are thinking about divorce, they should prayerfully consider their decision. It is appropriate to seek counsel from trusted leaders and professionals. No person should feel a need to remain in an abusive relationship.
The children of parents who are considering divorce or have been divorced should be helped to understand that their parents’ decision is not their fault or responsibility.
