4) 1 Corinthians 13- 4 – 7:-” Love is patient and kind, love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way, love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged”.

The passage above simply shows us all that’s encapsulated in love.
Tell me, where will divorce come from if all these are in place in your relationship.
