What can I do if I have tried and tried for years to keep my marriage alive and my partner is not interested in continuing?
God does not like divorce and divorce was not ordained from the beginning. God is a God of restoration and reconciliation therefore a struggling marriage should not be given up on. You cannot force or make your spouse stay in a marriage with you however from your stand point you can choose to do all that you can to maintain the marriage according to God's Word. 1Cor 7:10-16 gives us instruction regarding marriage. God is telling us here that wives are not to separate from their husbands; if either spouse has a spouse who does not believe in God but wants to stay married, they are not to divorce; if the unbelieving spouse leaves, let them leave. In addition Matthew 19:9 tells us that adultery is a cause of divorce however you must keep in mind that God is able to restore the marriage when both spouses are willing. Christian counseling is always a good route to take in saving your marriage. If you are interested in meeting with some one at the church about Marriage Counseling please call us at 505-831-0961
