I have been married now for close to twelve years now, and though there have been some tough times, my wife Deidre and I are still hanging in there and love each other. We have a number of friends who got married before and after us, who have the same story. However we know of many who have started out on the journey called marriage but decided that there was not enough The subject of divorce is a difficult one whether you're in Christian circles or not. The truth of the matter is that divorce is that elephant that is standing in the middle of a lot of our rooms but no wants to acknowledge it. The question is what do you when faced with it and how do you handle the subject of dissolving a marriage when there is so much involved and invested.
Handle Your Business
What is often difficult to keep in perspective is that you almost have to view divorce like a business transaction rather than the end of a relationship. Over the life of a marriage, property is acquired, accumulated, and disbursed. When its time to dissolve a marriage relationship, the spouses have to take on the mind of a mergers and acquisitions manager, and stay objective, or you will become emotionally charged and eventually make the wron decisions. I know it sounds cold and calculating (no pun intended), but what may have started out as a passionate love romance must, oftentimes, be relegated to a four-person board meeting (if you count the lawyers).
