What mainly kills a marriage is not forgiving each other.
People today run to file a divorce but there is what is called forgiveness.
And people who are called to forgive are forgiven by God.
“Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:32 NASB
Yes, many people live in a dead marriage because they do not forgive each other; or, one or both of them refuse to seek help for the problems they’re facing.
For instance, a wife catches her husband viewing porn for a third time and she quietly resents him knowing that she will catch him again. Her husband simply asks her to forgive him without taking the effort to seek help for his porn addiction.
And sadly enough, this couple continues to live together under the same roof but their marriage is a dead marriage.
Please let’s not run for a divorce. Where work has to be done, let’s do the work and forgive each other. Because it is the will of God for us and our marriages to live and be a blessing to the body of Christ. May God help us all! ///
