5 situations where a divorce is justified before God

5 SITUATIONS WHERE A DIVORCE IS JUSTIFIED BEFORE GOD

Erika Strassburger

There are many reasons why someone can seek divorce without violating sacred vows made before God.

My greatest wish for couples who are facing problems in their relationship is that they are able to resolve their differences and be happy together. Unfortunately, not all marital problems are so easily conquered.

I often receive messages from readers who explain their serious and devastating problems in their marriage. I always strive to help them identify the problem, suggest ways to treat their wounds and help them rescue their love. Some situations, however, require immediate action. There are many people who need the courage to escape from their toxic relationships as soon as possible.

Easily Indicate You Want Sex Using the Arousal Scale for Couples

EASILY INDICATE YOU WANT SEX USING THE AROUSAL SCALE FOR COUPLES

8 THINGS HEALTHY COUPLES DON’T DO

Aaron & April Jacob

We all want to have the “model,” marriage (does that even exist?!), and so we find couples we admire to model our own marriages after.

As important as it is to notice the positive things those couples do, it’s equally important to recognize what they don’t do. Check out this list to see 8 specific things healthy couples don’t do.

10 WAYS OF SHOWING COMPLETE FIDELITY IN MARRIAGE

Nurturing Marriage

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines fidelity as both “the quality or state of being faithful,” along with being “[accurate and exact] in details.” When it comes to fidelity in marriage, the details really do matter.
