    According to this particular verse:

    "But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such [cases]: but God hath called us to peace."
    (1st Cor. 7:15)

    Sister, according to this specific verse, which the Apostle Paul speaks by permission... not of commandment, he is stating that if a spouse, who is an un-believer, willfully leaves a believing spouse, then the believing spouse is no longer bound to the sacred vows of that marriage.

    Following up on that verse, Brother Paul also states, "Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife." (1 Cor. 7:27)

    Simply explained, Father God, would that no marriage would end in divorce; because it is really the slow death of the family unit.

    But many of us fail to obey the divine will of Father God; and wind up taking the path of His permissive will.

    Even in a marriage based on truly godly, righteous principles can end in divorce; if a man and a woman are not of the same mind, heart and spirit.

    In choosing a mate, we must seek Father God with all of our heart, mind and soul; in order for Him to lead us to the right mate.

    Next to salvation... marriage is, by far, the most important decision that a person will make in their lifetime.
