Don't let the #1 Cause of Divorce Ruin You Marriage

What Does God Want Me to do When My Husband Wants a Divorce?

I’m sorry to hear that you’re going through such a difficult time in your marriage.

When faced with the possibility of divorce, it’s natural to feel lost and unsure of what to do next.

As a Christian, seeking guidance from God’s word is crucial in understanding what He wants you to do in this situation.

First and foremost, it’s important to remember that God hates divorce (Malachi 2:16).

However, He also recognizes that living in a broken marriage can be incredibly challenging. In the Old Testament, God allowed divorce in cases of adultery (Deuteronomy 24:1-4).

In the New Testament, Jesus emphasized the importance of marriage and discouraged divorce, except in cases of sexual immorality (Matthew 19:9).

So, what does God want you to do when your husband wants a divorce?

The first step is to pray and seek guidance from the Holy Spirit.

Ask Him to reveal His plan for your marriage and give you wisdom on how to proceed.

Additionally, seek counsel from your pastor or a trusted Christian counselor who can provide biblical advice.

It’s important to note that every situation is unique, and there may be circumstances where divorce is the right thing to do.

The Apostle Paul addresses such cases in 1 Corinthians 7:12-15.

If an unbelieving spouse insists on leaving, the believer is not bound to the marriage.

However, it is still encouraged to work towards reconciliation if possible.

If your husband’s desire for divorce is due to physical abuse or any other form of harm, it’s crucial to prioritize your safety and the safety of any children involved.

Seek help from local authorities or organizations that specialize in domestic violence.

Remember that no matter what happens, God is with you and will never abandon you.

He can bring healing and restoration even in the most broken circumstances. Trust in His plan for your life and have faith that He will guide you through this difficult journey.

In conclusion, when faced with the possibility of divorce, seek guidance from God’s word, pray for wisdom from the Holy Spirit, and seek counsel from trusted Christian sources.

Every situation is unique, but the ultimate goal should be to honor God and strive for reconciliation if possible.
