Couples cannot afford divorce, financially, emotionally or spiritually.

Couples cannot afford divorce, financially, emotionally or spiritually. Divorce is one of the worse possible experiences for our children, causing a break in belonging, thereby causing adverse consequences for our children’s lifetimes regardless of each child’s age.

Let me repeat, couples cannot afford divorce, financially, emotionally or spiritually. Maybe you should be the model for your family to consider the alternative… restoring and rebuilding everlasting love.
