MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE
Nobody enters marriage thinking that they will divorce. Divorce is something that happens when there seems to be no solution to problems a couple is facing. Sometimes, it is the result of abuse. If you are struggling with divorce, you may find help here. If you struggle as a result of abuse, please visit the abuse page.

LUTHERAN HOUR MINISTRIES FOR A COMPLETE LISTING
With divorce comes upheaval. Like puzzle pieces scattered on a floor, the divorced person is left putting his or her life back together—often with only the faintest picture to work from. Compounding the collapse of a relationship that was once “till death do us part” are fits of anger, intense frustration and, sometimes, a hopelessness that knows no bounds. No bounds that is, until God’s grace can change the hearts of those involved.
REDISCOVER INTIMACY IN YOUR MARRIAGE
The author of this booklet shares what she’s learned from ten years of marriage and from professional experience counseling couples. Scholars say that making marriage a top priority is the best gift we can give our children. She’ll show you how to create romance in your marriage, from creating the right mood and caring for yourself to looking at your relationship from a new perspective.
FOR better, for worse: maintaining a healthy marriage
Soaring divorce rates indicate that good marriages don’t just happen. A good marriage requires a firm foundation and effective ways to deal with key areas, such as financial concerns, decision-making processes and child-rearing. This booklet shares four principles of a healthy marriage and provides practical recommendations to maintain the love that brought you together in the first place. If you are married or if marriage is in your future, this booklet will provide insights to help you avoid becoming a divorce statistic.
