50% Divorce Rate in Church is Misleading Propoganda

This is a game-changer. Talk about “an old wives’ tale.” You’ve heard it said that 1) 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce; 2) most marriages that do happen to make it are, nonetheless, unhappy, and 3) Christians are just as likely to divorce as non-believers. These claims, long understood to be research-based facts, never quite sat right with me. Still, admittedly, while these … Continue reading 50% Divorce Rate in Church is Misleading Propoganda

The Link Between Divorce and Mortality

In 1897 the pioneering sociologist Emile Durkheim established that suicide rates ran considerably higher among divorced men and women than among their married peers.  In the decades that followed, other sociologists discovered that mortality rates overall ran significantly higher among the divorced than among the married.  In recent years, however, some scholars have wondered, how much does the linkage between divorce and elevated mortality rates … Continue reading The Link Between Divorce and Mortality

Till Conscious Uncoupling Do Us Part

The twitter universe was abuzz when actress Gwyneth Paltrow announced on her digital media website GOOP, that after 11 years of marriage, she and her husband, Coldplay front-man Chris Martin, were “consciously uncoupling.” #consciousuncoupling  . . . Say what?  Everyone else calls it a separation, split, break-up, or divorce. But Paltrow, known as somewhat of a lifestyle guru, thinks those terms carry too much negative baggage. So what, exactly, is … Continue reading Till Conscious Uncoupling Do Us Part

Matt Walsh: I’ve been divorced four times, but homosexuals are the ones destroying marriage

Last night, someone emailed and asked me to write about the gay marriage case inVirginia. This morning, a woman from Wisconsin asked if I would blog about the gay marriage case in her state. A few readers in Utah have also requested that I chime in on the gay marriage fight there. And so I was going to do just that. I sat down to type a scathing rant about gay marriage. I … Continue reading Matt Walsh: I’ve been divorced four times, but homosexuals are the ones destroying marriage

The new silence which is destroying our kids

Child sexual abuse statistics publicly available in the United States are far more comprehensive and meaningful than in Australia. Despite the scholarly interest in the relationship between non-traditional families and child sexual abuse, and regardless of the good evidence that family breakdown is a major risk factor, data published by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) and the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) … Continue reading The new silence which is destroying our kids

The Christian divorce rate myth

From American Vision News: The Aquila Report reports, “Christians divorce at roughly the same rate as the world.” It’s one of the most quoted stats by Christian leaders today. And it’s perhaps one of the most inaccurate. . . . Many people who seriously practice a traditional religious faith — be it Christian or other — have a divorce rate markedly lower than the general population. … Continue reading The Christian divorce rate myth

Broken Dreams

When the earthly husband enjoyed his many companions and habits and left for greener pastures, the Heavenly Husband rushed right in. “For your husband is your Maker, Whose name is the LORD of hosts: And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, Who is called the God of all the earth.” Is. 54:5

I remember the night I was served divorce papers. Life as my family knew it would change forever.
