The Unbreakable Promise
The purpose of this paper is to investigate when married Christian couples should divorce. This is an important topic because it is rarely discussed in the Christian community, and divorce is far too common in the Church. This paper starts off with the definition of love, and then gets more specific by looking into romantic love and then eventually marriage. Marriage is set apart from other romantic relationships because of the wedding vows. The wedding vows, the purpose of marriage, and the nature of love all play a big part in answering the question of whether or not couples should divorce. The thesis of this paper is that morally couples should never divorce, even in circumstances when it is legally permissible. The paper then confirms this thesis by looking at the examples of abuse, infidelity, unequally yoked partners, and spouses who jointly desire to divorce.
