Reaffirm Your Marriage Commitment
The two oldest sons had become bitter young men. They were bitter at their father for divorcing their mother, bitter toward their mother for the accusations that their father had made against her, and bitter toward God for allowing the divorce to happen. Their anger and bitterness were now spreading and negatively influencing their younger brothers and sisters as well.
A damaged or broken marriage is a painful ordeal for a husband and wife. Divorce does not separate a married couple; rather, it tears them apart and leaves long-lasting wounds, because in marriage they have become one flesh. As hurtful as a broken marriage will be to the couple, sometimes the deepest emotional wounds are felt by their children.
