15 Major Reasons for Divorce You Must Avoid!

1. Young Age; A lasting marriage won’t be too impatient to start at teenage or adolescent age.

2. Lack of sound Courtship period; Failure to understand individual difference to some extent before marriage can short-live such relationship. Your courtship must not be a short one and if it doesn’t flow then your marriage cannot be successful.

3. Little or no education on marriage; Learning from Elders, Pastors and other counsellors before marriage helps to destroy the forces of divorce.

4. Financial recklessness; Divorce is imminent if marriage starts on a poverty level or lack of knowledge on money management.

5. Not ready to take responsibilities; when one or both partners lack commitment to sustain the home when things get tough.

6. Toxic communication; careless talks, hot argument, verbal abuse, coarse jokes, not having time to listen to each other must be avoided in marriage.

7. Long-distance marriage; God did not design marriage for husband and wife to live separately.

“Therefore, a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24)

8. Religious difference; It is too risky in this generation for a Christian to marry someone who is not knowledgeable and faithful to the word of God in the Bible.

10. Extramarital affairs; Exercise self-control when dealing with opposite sex.

11. Addiction; Drug abuse, alcoholics and gambling are terrible features that kills marriage.

12. Domestic Abuse; Angry moment is inevitable but hitting your spouse is demonic. Go out for a walk when the room is tensed.

14. Premarital pregnancy; This is a fruit of fornication against God’s will.
