Since marriage is a representation of Christ’s union with the church, divorce can be a difficult subject for Christians. It isn’t a new concern—the Pharisees questioned Jesus about divorce—but if half of all current marriages end in divorce (as is commonly suggested), it’s a urgent crisis with many facets. Do Christian couples get divorced just as often as non-Christians, and what does that say about Christian marriage? What impact does divorce have on a family? What methods—political, sociological, or ecclesial—can we use to keep families intact?
