Then you must start now to take preventive measures that would prevent you from bearing the status, divorcee. Remember, I am not trying to criticize those that have already found themselves in a divorce, but all the same, you can still reunite with your spouse, it’s never too late until it is late. And from what I can tell you, divorce is not a good practice, so I would suggest you desist from it or avoid anything that would lead your marriage to a divorce. If you doubt me, try and read this novel titled, “Smart Women.”
How can you avoid being divorced? Prevent it from happening in the first place. Remember, the best cure in life is prevention, because you wouldn’t have any need to cure a disease you don’t have. How is this applicable to marriage? Read on.
Firstly, what is divorce? In concise English, divorce is a legal termination of a marriage. From my own understanding of divorce, it’s an act that started in the civilized worlds, viz. Europe and America per say, and today, it has spread so wide to all other parts of the world, to the extent that it is now a daily palaver that people have to deal with. I want to also make it known that our modern courts (talking of marriage courts), have also contributed to the abnormal increase in divorce cases globally, how do I mean? The so called legal practitioners of nowadays, have discovered that divorce is one of the easiest ways of making fast money, and so they sometimes collaborate with spouses (especially the females), to instigate a divorce, especially when they discover that the man is rich. They achieve this in many forms- setting the man up with other women to ignite distrust and quarrel between the man and his wife, through dubious enlightenment of the female partner to initiate a divorce in order to make money from her husband. Sadly enough, most nations of the world has favored this unscrupulous act through their biased laws favoring the female parties in a marriage, which most often gives the female parties the inspiration to seek for a divorce when minor case which ought to be resolved in the bedroom arises.
If I have my way, I will scrap all laws empowering married women to seek for divorce because it has never helped the world; instead, it had produced more separated families and homeless children. Haven’t you wondered why there are lesser number of divorce cases in Africa, Asia and Middle East compared to America and Europe? It is as a result of the numerous laws that exist in Europe and America, which were originally meant to protect women, but unfortunately, these laws had acted against nature, and so, created a negative reaction of inspiring more women in the developed world to seek for divorce in minor marital disagreement that ought to have been settled amicably. Take for instance the law that exists in the UK, which makes a single mother to be entitled to a government allowance, why? Such laws can only nurture negative actions amongst young girls, because they would prefer to be receiving regular pay from government for having a child out of wedlock, at least, that would give them freedom from being under any man’s control while being paid.
Anyway, the laws are already in existence, so all we have to do now is focus on how to reduce divorce cases in the world. It gives me pain to see a young person, especially woman who is divorced or widowed, but when you study the circumstances behind their being divorced, you would discover that most are the cause of their divorce.
Now, how do you avoid being divorced as a man or woman? Firstly, make the right choice of spouse; don’t be in a haste to marry, so you don’t jump out hastily. For the ladies, I have already written a hub on how to choose a good husband, find time and go through that hub, it’s very helpful. As for the guys, I would advise that you avoid acting on your instincts when making choice of a wife, remember, it is a lifetime commitment and not dating where you can jump out easily at any moment you desire, and you have to also note that you do not marry a lady out of pity!
If you are a Christian, it would be very wise and crucial that you submit your search for a wife to fasting and prayer. After fasting and prayer, tell God to connect you with your supposed spouse. I used the word, ‘supposed’ because your supposed spouse might not be the one you desire in your heart. Please don’t quote me wrong, your spouse must be someone you desire soulfully, not based on material and other selfish desires which only God knows, and that’s why you must go down on your knees to seek for God’s divine direction.
Take for instance, you desire to marry a star or a celebrity, whereas God has ordained that your spouse will be a normal class citizen, comfortable and okay, and out of your material and selfish interest, you went ahead and married a star, and three years after, you had enough of the stardom, the materials, the wealth, and now start to demand for true passion and love which the partner doesn’t have to offer you, what would be the future of that marriage? This is one of the reasons you must seek for God’s direction when making choice of spouse in life, if you want to avoid being divorced.
Have you tried a fleece before?
What is a fleece? A fleece simply means getting something by trick. But in this context, I am talking of divine trick through the power of God. How? After you must have fasted and prayed, make a fleece by asking God in prayer to direct you to your spouse through a particular means that your spirit directs you to use during your prayer.
For example, you can tell God that let the first man that will shake your hand on a particular day be your spouse. Before you make this fleece, ensure that you are spiritually, mentally, and emotionally prepared to marry, and you have made your way right with God through prayer, you can as well pray with Psalm 51. Try this with faith, and watch out for the result. Believe me, many people have used this tactics to find their true spouse, so go ahead and try it, and please do not hold your testimony when you try. Good luck, we shall continue on the part two of this lesson soon.
