After infidelity has occurred in a marriage, many couples assume that the situation is hopeless and that divorce is the only option. They don't see how the trust can be restored in their relationship. If you are dealing with unfaithfulness in your marriage, you might feel the same way. It might help to know that a great many couples have been able to recover from adultery. Many even say their marriages have improved and are stronger after infidelity than before. It all depends on how you handle the situation.
Many people have reservation about marrying someone much older than the other.
The Bible provides several examples of marriage by people with a difference in age gap, and one of them is between Ruth and Boaz.
Ruth is one of the few people in the Bible with no recorded sin, and she goes down into history following the genealogical line of our Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 1:5).

When your marriage or relationship is going through a rough patch it is vital that couples get good advice from a marriage/relationship counsellor, it follows that if you are Christian someone connected with your Christian community would be best.
In today's society, divorce is a fast way out of an unpleasant situation. In the United States, roughly half of all marriages now end in divorce. This statistic is almost as high in the church as it is the world. What are we to make of this flood of broken covenants that wash across our land? Many are drowning in its tide, beaten by their own broken words and failure. Some are dying under a flood of guilt, while others sail merrily along, unaware that their boat is rotting and will soon sink under the waves. Is there a cure for this marital epidemic of broken promises, blame, guilt, unforgiveness, discontent and wounded children? Can God truly heal even the most broken of marriages?
“I just want him to do what he says he’s going to do,” Ginger said to me forcefully, turning away from her husband.
Her husband, Kevin, stared at her with that deer-in-the-headlights look, fearing he would say the wrong thing.
“Why don’t you say something?” Ginger said, becoming more irritated, “I’ve asked you to be more involved with the children, and you give some lame excuse. I’ve asked you to be part of paying the bills, and you never seem to have the time. I ask you to spend quality time with me, and you’re not sure what to do. I’m just so frustrated.” Kevin fidgeted, glancing down at the notes he’d been taking during our counseling session.
I opened my heart and how I feel
telling you how much you mean to me
the dark forces descends like a black cloud
wanting to devour me
I understand why Abba says:
“Fill your heart and mind with Me,
otherwise, eight more demons comes back to fill the empty, clean space”
Lots of Christians pray that faith will steer them off the jagged rocks of modern marriage. But for most Christian couples, faith is not enough. Divorce is just as common for Christians as it is for non-Christians, and the same modern pressures stress Christian marriages until divorce seems to be the only option.
We're sure you've heard stories about married couples who wake up one morning and suddenly decide they just don't want to be married any more. Or couples who claim they had absolutely no clue their partner was unhappy.
We say that's likely not true. Divorce is not an overnight decision. Much like those weeds that grew in your flower garden; while it seems they just appeared overnight, they didn't. Those weeds were germinating beneath the dirt long before you saw them. You only began to give attention to the weeds when they became too large to remain beneath the soil. And so it is with marriage; the issues were always beneath the surface but were never dealt with.
In today's society, we define families in many different ways. We have single parent families, same sex parent families and father-mother families. And all of these families are acceptable in this world. Some of us were primarily raised in a single parent home and even though mistakes or sin was committed, with God's help, we turned out fine. No family is perfect. Just as no one is perfect. We bring all of our issues, problems and concerns to the table and usually take it out on the people who are closest to us. Families weren't designed to hurt one another, but to love and comfort one another. For Genesis 13:8 says, "So Abram said to Lot, "Let's not have any quarreling between you and me, or between your herdsmen and mine, for we are brothers."
