In an era where marriage is in vogue, the general expectation is that it would have meant that the society
is gaining a better understanding of the essence of the institution of marriage and families. Unfortunately,
many marriages, and most unfortunately, especially Christian marriages, generally do not last beyond two
years due to many internal and external factors that plague them.
Today, about more than half of marriages end up in divorce. One of the main problems associated with the
break-up of marriages is lack of knowledge about the biblical concept of marriage; God’s idea of marriage,
His principles concerning the institution and the fact that He does not intend it to end in divorce.
