One of the most commonly named grounds people use when filing for a divorce is irreconcilable differences. The term irreconcilable differences generally means that the married couple can’t or won’t restore their marital relationship—that their differences make them powerless or unwilling to reconcile.
In every marriage, especially the ones that end in divorce, there is at least one person who invariably regrets never saying what should have been said while still in that relationship. The female speaker in this poem mentions she had this problem, but then she corrects it before it became too late.
Believers should never be money-oriented or obsessed with material possessions. However, this truth doesn’t mean they can’t find happiness in their own little world. Believers surely can count their blessings daily, give Father God thanks daily, and daily laugh, smile, have fun, and cherish the big and small things that delight them.
It is an enormous tragedy that believing spouses participate in when they allow life’s sooner-or-later difficulties to tear asunder (break in two) their marriages. The two eternal souls that were one are what gets severed (divided), which means these torn asunder souls will eternally remain divided. Selah!
Just like the outmoded 8-track tapes and audio cassettes, Christian annulments and divorces are making marriage seem as if this God-established institution also has become obsolete. Thank God that, from the beginning, He never meant for His children to erase or disjoin a marital union via an annulment or a divorce.
