    What causes some people to view divorce as a sign of failure in a marriage instead of seeing

    it as an opportunity for evolving emotionally, psychologically, even psychically and spiritually?

    I don't know about "some people," but the thought occurred that our relationship with a marriage partner may ALSO involve an opportunity to evolve emotionally, psychologically and even psychically and spirituality.

    What better opportunity to consciously practice emotional maturity, and spiritual tolerance, self-understand about what we react to and why?   Also, what in us IS reacting.  Is it our real self or the image we have of our self?   What better opportunity to grow in real wisdom than by treating our relationship with someone who possibly denigrates us as no one else would dare?

    Perhaps it is a failure if we give up on such an opportunity in the hope of finding someone or something better 'out there.'   

    However, it has been said that there really is no such failure.  All we do is get results.   Whether we're a winner or a loser depends entirely on our own interpretation.  And that, of course, depends on how we see ourselves.

    To some people marriage seem as a fail because of the marriages they see around them. But there are successful marriages due to couples putting God first and treating each other kindly. If your marriage partner can be your friend and you actually like them, your marriage has a chance at being strong and real.

    Divorce is a closure of a marriage , but many have been basically because people own reasons many not scriptural based on who created it from the beginning .
    Marriage is a union of two under God to love and cherish to take if one another till death depart you.
    So what that means not only are you making a vow with each other ,you include God in that vow. So you are vowing to him your loyalty.
    People go into marriages for conveniences. Yet this is more a serious thing then people vuw it as. The easily jump out when things get uncomfortable for themself.
    Not scriptural. The bible gives good counsel .he tells us that marriage could be a tribulation in the flesh.
    Reference Bible 1Co 7:28 But even if you did marry, you would commit no sin. And if a virgin [person] married, such one would commit no sin. However, those who do will have tribulation in their flesh. But I am sparing YOU. 
    This was a pre known fact .
    So that means no fairy tales of happily ever after.
    But what is missing in most is that third string that would hold the two togather
    They both can draw strength from God and keep the merriage intact.
    Remeber the marriage vow involves more then two ,it involves the creator of the two
    For you vow to him.
