Divorce and Separation

When Bob wanted a divorce because he wasn't happy, he sought the counsel of many people. His best friend said that getting divorce was the most positive decision he'd ever made; a misinformed pastor said, "Divorce is made in heaven," and his new Internet friends said, "It's best to do it now since your kids are out of the house." That was all Bob needed. He was convinced that divorce would be the ticket to help him recapture his youth, find another woman and finally live happily ever after.

Anyone who feels trapped in a marriage can find many marriage "counselors," each with their own opinions, to tell them what's best. But when it comes to divorce, it takes more than an opinion to discover the right thing to do — it takes wisdom.

At Focus on the Family, we're committed to providing that wisdom in order to help you navigate through your questions about divorce. With our help, we hope you'll find the wisdom you need to make a Godly decision for your marriage and your family.
