The Number One Divorce Stopper (Part 2)


Okay, I’m back for my discussion about relationships and divorce — this is The Number One Divorce Stopper (Part 2). In case you missed The Number One Divorce Stopper (Part 1), please go here as it will help you to understand this post a lot better!

So let’s jump, jump, jump to it.

So listen, I believe, and this is coming from my personal experience of being married for nearly 20 years–prayer works. I understand that there are couples who have been married for years and years and have never prayed…I’m just showing you what has worked for me.

Okay, so, for starters…if you are in a relationship where your spouse or partner or boyfriend or girlfriend or whatever you call them, lol…your boo boo.. (remember, what I’m telling you works for any relationship because I’m a firm believer that God meets people where they’re at) I just happened to be married, thus the title. However, in a sense, my focus is primarily for those who are married.

Anyway, as I was saying, if you are in a relationship where your spouse or partner or boyfriend or girlfriend does not believe in prayer; what I plan on sharing with you will not work. If you believe in prayer (maybe you had a prayin’ grandmama), or even if you don’t pray a lot, if at all, and your spouse or partner doesn’t understand or believe in the power of prayer, your relationship is doomed from the start.

If you have some morals in your life, don’t waste your time messin’ around with some guy or woman who does not believe what you believe. I don’t care how fine or sexy he or she is. Many people have found out the hard way that a good sex life does not equate to having a long-lasting relationship — ’cause that’s all the relationship is about — SEX.

Now if sex is what all you two lovebirds sexbirds want from the relationship then fine, I’m obviously not talking to you. That is so shallow–shame on you! But I can’t judge because I’ve been there, lol.  But you BETTER BE CAREFUL.

No, I’m talking to those people who desire a genuine relationship–a lasting one.

But look, there is no perfect marriage. It doesn’t’ matter who they are or how great they seem when you see them together, there is no such thing as a perfect marriage. Now don’t get me wrong, there are many happily married couples who are madly in love with each other and it may seem like heavenly bliss to them, but trust me, it’s not blissful 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We know that’s nonsense otherwise half of all marriages would not end in divorce.

All I’m saying is that married people have issues, large or small — that’s just life. As you already know, (otherwise you probably wouldn’t  be reading this post) things can get VERY complicated in a relationship.

So what is it gonna take for your marriage or relationship to survive? Prayer I tell ya. We got to pray just to make it today. It is the simplest thing to do yet it is so hard for many to implement in a relationship. It really is just THAT…simple.

Post is getting long again!…I will whip up Part 3 in another post, okay? Stick with me!
