Have you ever considered Divorce ?

I am sure you are reading this because you are head over heels in love with your spouse and you don’t have ANY problems, right?

Have you and your spouse ever considered Divorce?

Did you know?
To avoid divorce we must understand the reasons behind divorce.

As you read the #1 reason for Divorce is Financial Reasons!  

How do you and your spouse handle financial issues?

1.                    Is it Yours and Mine or Ours? :  How do you view the money that is brought into your household.  Viewing the income you both bring to your family, as “ours” will eliminate some of the division of money issues.  

2.                    Are you on the same page?:  Do you and your spouse have common financial goals ? Communicate with your spouse your financial desires and stick to your agreements.

3.                    Seek Professional Guidance: In these tough economical times sometimes finances are a huge issue. If you have major issues with your finances seek help with a financial counselor or debt consultation firm.

4.                    Communication: With any martial issue communication is key. Talk and listen to what your spouse has to say and take steps to compromise.

5.                    Pre-Marriage Debt- Many times people get married and are aware of financial issues that already brewing. If you married someone who already had financial issues ranging from school debt, credit card debit, or even child support payments you cannot expect these debits to disappear.  Be supportive and help your spouse concur their debt so that your marriage can continue to grow.

Here are some biblical views of divorce:  Divorce and Remarriage

With any issues that cause you and your spouse to consider Divorce, remember that positive communication is needed. If you and your spouse reach a point that you are considering Divorce don’t give up on your relationship. Seek Guidance from a professional, a church leader, or marriage educator. Remember that marriage is a Labor of Love. Most importantly Pray together and seek God together if you are seeking your “Loving Lasting Marriage”.
