Keep this in mind, you are not a whole single of mind and well prepared for marriage until you are prepared to never get a divorce. The institution of marriage was created by the king, not by this world’s system. Divorce was never in the scope of God. Read what He said concerning divorce to the religious leaders: …Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said “For this reason a man shall leave her father and mother and be joined to his wife and the two shall become one flesh. So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together let not man separate”. If you have noticed, Jesus stated that they “become one flesh”. Meaning that it is a process. The husband is supposed to cultivate his wife and family. That entails living by His Word and training your wife and children; especially through examples and by your behavior.
Now if you notice, the religious leaders wanted to justify their actions so they brought up the law of Moses. But read what King Jesus stated to them: He said to them, “Moses because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives but from the beginning it was not so”. Once again Jesus refers back to the beginning. He always referred back to the original principles of His Father God. Read what He continues to state: And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery.
In the beginning, man and woman were righteous, walking in harmony with God and fellowshipping with God in the cool of the day. They were at one with God their Creator. Keep in mind, after the fall, there was no fellowship and oneness with God as formerly. There was no covenant as yet; only God’s promise of a Deliverer to come who would bruise Satan’s head. Also, there began to be a division between the man and woman and between their children. All of this happened because of man’s disobedience to God’s Word.
