Does religion not matter when it comes to loving a spouse?

"It's now pretty much agreed that the evangelical church mirrors the dysfunctions of secular society, from premarital sex stats to divorce rates to buying habits. Much to our dismay, we are hardly a light to the world, nor an icon of the abundant, transformed life."

Religion is not why someone gets married. Staying married has nothing to do with religion. It has ALL to do with that vow that was made between the husband and wife. You know the vow till death do us part. Marriage is for life! It's not for till I find someone else or because the couple has a disagreement. I am the ONLY daughter out of a large family that has stayed with their FIRST spouse. I come from a large family too. When I married I meant it was for life!! I didn't marry for money and neither did he. We both knew when we said those vows they were for life. If you ask if we ever had a disagreement, yes we have. Have we thought about giving up, well we didn't give up! I don't know what I would do without my husband and I sure don't want to find out any time to soon!
Why are people not worried about keeping the marriage together. Why is divorce the first thing that happens? Is it because "I want what I want and don't care about working it out?" I believe that the moral things are no longer taught because it all about self and not others. That is my opinion. I will not beat anyone over their head if they don't agree that is not the true Christian way.

No, it doesn't. Christians are what they are and, if they accept their spouse then: what god puts together, no man CAN put asunder!

But ho, most of those phoneys who claim the christian crown aren't anything near a christian. So why should they have a better retention rate?

No servant would to divorce and remarry is wrong. Now you play God by changing what has been established by God to be acceptable.

Whoever puts away the spouse for on grounds of adulter, sometimes called fornication, may remarry without to commit adultery.

MAT 5: 32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

MAR 10: 11 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.

I have divorced 5 times and none of this made any difference to me. If it doesn't work then get a divorce but be sure you have a good attorney.

GS If you could READ what I said you would under stand that I said religion has NOTHING to do with marriage. Religion can be made of ANYTHING you well please. Even if one is not a Christian getting married is not wrong in itself. However I know someone that like you has been married lots of times and still is not happy. Funny thing is THEY are the one that broke the marriage vow!
You GS are only trying to stir up trouble and that is why it was posted TO YOU that you agree divorce and remarriage is WRONG. This proves a point that was made, YOU USE others.

Some Christians are still in their first marriage, some divorce but feel the sin is in the defined adultery of the remarriage so they neither remarry or engage in sex, others feel the sin is the divorce and they can be forgiven for that so they do remarry, and of course some simply do not concern themselves with the sin aspect of divorce and remarriage.

If you could read you'd see in your very own words your posted a Christian vow and not all wed under these vows. You are just dumb not to see that or just plain stupid who knows.
Marriage is not for life that is why we have divorce in this country. I have been through 5 divorces and can refer you to a wonderful attorney if you are thinking of divorcing.

So, to you it made no difference, but did you devorce due to adultery of your spouse?

It is that most folk claim to be christian, but they are not.
God states he allowes re-marry only if you devorced due to adultery: else you commit adultery and violate the commandment.

Whoever puts away the spouse on the grounds of adultery, sometimes called fornication, may remarry without to commit adultery.

MAT 5: 32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

MAR 10: 11 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.

Nope don't need a divorce lawyer. I'm not like those who think that it ok to cheat and sleep around on their spouse or use the woman until all the money is gone. I don't believe that you really want a marriage just the novelty of being able to say you are married. Sorry I didn't marry for money I married for life.
