Ask God to help you build that strength you need to live right and avoid causing problems in your marriage. Also, ask God to help you take positive steps that will improve your marriage instead of hurting it.
God is always there to guide you when you ask him to. He promised never to leave nor forsake you. Devote yourself to prayers and things will become good again.
See A Marriage Counselor For Help:-
In the process of self-improving, also choose to see any marriage counselor for advice. Christian marriage counselors can guide you on how to maintain your boundaries while you are separated as well as what you can do to get back again.
You can also attend seminars, couples classics, and read more marriage books and play CDs. All these are to make sure that those marriage mistakes are avoided.
Grant The Divorce If That Is What Your Partner Wants:-
I know that this doesn’t sound good, but that’s the truth. You must be willing to accept reality. If you have tried all that you could and your partner is still demanding a divorce, don’t hesitate to accept it.
God knows that you have done your best, so he will not hold the divorce against you. Use that opportunity to show real love to your children and be sincere with them about the divorce.
Reassure them that you will do your best to see that they have the best as you divorce.
What Does The Bible Say About Separation/ Divorce?
Marriage is a covenant and whenever man and woman enter that marriage covenant, they have been joined together by God Mathew 19 verse 6.
That simply means that every marriage is supposed to last forever and not temporarily, or be used as a solution for emotional needs or loneliness.
According to Malachi 2:16, God detests divorce, so any couple who enters into a divorce or separation has provoked God.
The truth is that separation, whether it is separation in Christian family or a Circular family is not an ideal situation, however, separation is necessary if one partner is abused in any form.
I have seen a situation where one of the spouses is abused to death. That situation would have been saved by divorce or separation.
It is important to uphold and respect the marriage vows, but it is also important that we don’t take separation or divorce simply.
My take is that you use separation as a therapeutic tool to make your marriage stronger and happier. Use it wisely to work on your relationship. If you refuse to use the time well you may find yourselves drifting farther apart instead of coming together.
I hope you understand all I have said in the article about separation in Christian marriage. This is a wonderful topic to treat at this time.
Remember that I said that a Christian is free to separate if he/she has in mind to repair the marriage and get back together again (trial separation).
It is not good to use separation as a solution to your emotional issues; that is not in God’s perfect plan for humanity.
Things To Not About Separation In Christian Marriage:-
- God does not like divorce.
- Use separation as a tool to make your marriage successful.
- Use the separation time to self help yourself.
- Create separation boundaries to help you during reconciliation.
- Separation doesn’t mean divorce.
