    Should I stay in a loveless marriage?

    I don't think so: love is the basis of a relationship, if there is no love, why do you stay married?

    That's a good question .but just like we purchase a valuble object say a presure cooker. There are instructions that go with the cooker . We bought into the fact that we want what it's about. Not reading and finding out what you are buying can be a problem down the road. Yet all marriages are not perfect as written here you can see why.

    1Co 7:28 But even if you did marry, you would commit no sin. And if a virgin married, such a person would commit no sin.
    However, those who do will have tribulation in their flesh. But I am trying to spare you.

    Did you notice ' tribulation in the flesh' yes this is true two different people joined togather will have tribulation in the flesh.
    But is that a reason to seperate under the law of God who created this bond.
    Notice how he feels.

    Mt 19:9I  say to you that whoever divorces his wife, except on the grounds of sexual immorality, and marries another commits adultery.”
    Mt 5:32 However, I say to YOU that everyone divorcing his wife, except on account of fornication, makes her a subject for adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
    1Co 7:11but if she should actually depart, let her remain unmarried or else make up again with her husband; and a husband should not leave his wife.

    These are the laws written yet people ignore them .
    The problem with this is The Heavenly Father does not change people do !
    We are not to be fooled to think this is not valid.
    It is.

      Human beings make mistakes!
      Not everyone chooses the right mate for them self whether it's dating or marriage. A divorce is a public admission that a mistake was made in the mate selection process for one or both people. He/she is not "the one".

    Realize that feelings can fade and return, and that sometimes anger about a side issue or neglect of someone can make it feel like you don't love them.
    Court your spouse, date again, dedicate time to the relationship. Reconnect - and it doesn't have to be an expensive side trip but many date nights, small acts of affection.

    No. You should still seek some form of counseling before divorce just to make sure of each others feelings. Don't waste your time being unhappy.

    People evolve and change. The person you are with today is not the same person you married. Some people grow closer together and some grow further apart. Enjoy the happy times you shared together and realize it will be better for both of you to move apart.

    Would you marry someone you didn't love?
    If the answer is "no". Why stay married to someone you don't love?
    At least that's my litmus test. If I wouldn't get married to someone knowing what I now know then it doesn't make sense to stay married to them. Life is too short to be wasting years in a loveless marriage.
    It's easier to maintain a fire than it is to reignite a spark!
    Many people feel like they (need) their spouse to cheat on them or be verbally/physically abusive to {give themselves permission} to walk away. Being in a loveless, sexless, or unhappy marriage is simply not enough! They fear being judged by others or think it could be worse.
    And yet most people (would not get married) under those conditions!
    The world may not owe you anything but (you) owe yourself the world! Every ending is a new beginning!

    Only (you) know what is right for you!
    Best wishes!
