Little Reasons

Considering divorce?  Many people are.  Our courts are full of couples who can find no reason to stay together any longer. In most states, you don’t even have to give a valid reason – “irreconcilable differences” is a sufficient cause. It’s not always a workable scenario, but many people walk away without so much as a fight for their investment.


Are there reasons to work it out? Here are a few:

  • God. The Lord says you should. He gives us scriptural grounds for divorce. His guidelines never use the phrase “irreconcilable differences.”
  • Commitment. You made an agreement. You took vows before God, family and friends. Don’t walk away from a promise.
  • Baggage. Think of the extra weight you’ll be carrying around, the complications divorce brings in so many areas – from finances to families.
  • Children. A child is reason enough to stay. Our children are the ones who take the brunt of any divorce. It alters a child’s life forever … and ever … and ever … when a couple does not work out their differences.
  • Legacy. The legacy you leave for your family becomes fractured, jagged, and unstructured. What a heritage you build in your family tree when marriage becomes priority in your life. It is a great generational inheritance.


Thinking about throwing in the towel? I would encourage you to stay and fight for your marriage. You can do it. Christ will help. And, so will I.  Contact me – joyce@justaskjoyce.com.
