Marriage and Divorce – Effects on Children

On Behalf of | May 12, 2014 | Divorce

In our Blog on Marriage and Divorce, we have looked at the many negative consequences of divorce on the individuals and the damaging, long term effects on the children. Let me strongly repeat, to those parents considering or in the process of divorce, it is not easy for children to cope with a divorce. Make every effort to prepare and assist them in dealing with these issues.
As common as divorce has become in today’s society, everything should be done to fight for the marriage. Everything should be done to avoid go through a divorce. Remember, marriage is more than just a coming together of two people but it is a joining, which as spiritual implications. When a divorce happens, there is a ‘tearing apart’ both physically and spiritually that leaves many scars and much hurt.
To you who are reading this blog: if you are married and going through some challenges, you do not have to end up as statistic. Divorce may look like the easiest or the only option you have but that is not true. You can fight for your marriage and you can seek the help others by way of marriage counseling, and more importantly, the help of God through prayer.
