Today we shall be engaging in bible verses about divorce. Marriage is an institution that was orchestrated by God Himself. That’s why the scripture, for this reason, shall a man leave his father and mother’s house to become one body with his wife. God established Marriage to ensure the continuity of humans on earth; that is why God said multiply and replenish the earth. However, there is something that sometimes destroys the union that has been blessed; it is called divorce.

Divorce is a situation whereby the husband and wife decide to resolve their marriage and go separate ways. Many people have argued that divorce contravenes the scriptural portion that states that what God has joined together, let no man put asunder. Quite a number of homes have been shattered by divorce.

A marriage that was one time the topic of the town due to how exorbitantly the couples spent on it has now been trashed a few months after. What exactly is the cause of all these divorce cars we have been hearing. The funny thing is that even pastors, men, and women of God also divorce, how amazing. Let’s take a look at what they bible says about divorce to give us a clearer picture of what it mean.

And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife;
Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house; and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails;
And she shall put the raiment of her captivity from off her, and shall remain in thine house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month: and after that thou shalt go in unto her, and be her husband, and she shall be thy wife.

But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.
But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.
And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the husband sanctifies the unbelieving wife: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.
But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.
For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? Or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.
