1. GOD'S HEART CONCERNING DIVORCE

Against popular belief, God loves the man and woman who make up the marriage more than their marriage itself. His heart is to save people first, not marriages. When the couple is whole the marriage is whole. Divorce is not sin in itself. God is always first in a marriage, not the spouse.

2. MARRYING OUTSIDE THE WILL OF GOD

Marrying outside the will of God can cause great problems. Divorce is used in these instances to save. Race is not the color or the facial feature of a person, but culture. Having different cultures is God's plan. Marrying within your culture (without regard to color or facial features) is also God's plan.

God’s Use of Divorce is to Save, Not Destroy .........41

3. THE RIGHT TO DIVORCE

God Himself invented divorce, not man. There are marriages God hates just as there are divorces that God hates. God's peace will always separate you from a wrong, bad or an abusive marriage.

God has No "Mistakes".................................70
The Separating Power of Peace ........................72


4. WHO JOINED YOU TOGETHER

We can actually be joined in marriage by the law, but not be joined by the Law-giver Himself. Having a baby out of wedlock does not dictate marriage. Staying in a wrong marriage is always worse than a divorce.


Did God Join Us Together? ............................77
Did We Join Ourselves Together? ......................78
Because of Peer Pressure .............................79
God’s Will for Marriage Isn't Based on Having a Baby..80
Unsanctified Marriages ...............................81


5. WHO IS DOING THE SEPARATING?

There are two types of marriage separations: one initiated by the marriage partners, and one initiated by God. God separates to save the people. Breaking soul ties can actually save your marriage, or free you from a bad relationship.

Breaking of a "Tie," Becoming Two Instead of One ....101
Breaking Free .......................................103


6. MARRIAGE, REMARRIAGE, AND RELATIONSHIP

Remarriage after divorce is the will of God. Adultery is not mandatory grounds for a divorce. A widow is also a woman who was divorced or deserted. It takes four kinds of love in a marriage to make it complete. Whether you've been through a marriage, divorce, remarriage, widowed or deserted, God tenderly cares for you.

7. SUBMISSION

Submission never means that you subject yourself to wrongdoing, abuse or control. Submission always has resistance to wrong -- always! You can actually throw away the liberation that God has provided to get you out of a bad situation by doing the "right thing" -- staying in a bad marriage. The keys to christian husband wife submission.
