One man with one woman for one lifetime. That’s God’s definition of marriage and He’s sticking to it. But whatever happened to the one lifetime part?
With a law adopted in 1969, California became the first U.S. state to permit no-fault divorce. Now it’s the law of the land from sea to shining sea. Either party can dissolve the marriage without showing wrongdoing and without regard to biblical standards. However, God is in the reconciliation business. “Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate” (Mark 10:9).
Is it really possible to make love last forever? God would never call us to something that He doesn’t also equip us to perform. That includes the commitment that a covenant marriage requires.
