Introduction

. In this coursework I will be looking at the aspects of marriage and divorce I will be looking at every aspect of this subject to the life's strain on marriages and what is meant by marriage, I also will be going though what it is meant to be married and what should be expected of the couple. I will also be going thought the vows the marring couple must take and what they mean. I will be looking at the church and what rules they have on marriage and whether if they should be changed or made easier. In the new testament St Paul says husbands should respect and love there wife and also to respect her as he would respect himself, he also said for a man to love wife is to love himself, he should look after her as Christ looks after his kingdom. St Paul said love is patient, it is never rude or selfish it doesn't takes offence In the letter St Paul to the Ephesians he advised the Colossians and the Corinthians to avoid immorality and also to use our bodies for gods glory, every man should have his own wife and every woman should have his own husband and that they should deny themselves to each other. ...read more.

Middle

In Matthews gospel Jesus said to any one who divorces his wife must give written notice to his wife, but now he says that if a man divorces his wife of any cause he is also to guilty of cominyng adultery. Today over 30% of marriages end in divorce, there are many factors, which may cause a divorce, here a few To day we are living in high finance and high information era so there may be conflicts between couples as they might not be able to mortgage or buy there own home all this leads to tension and anger between the couple also a lack of communication, the copupl3 can be too busy for each other and as a consequence they might never be around to talk to each other people might also find it hard expressing there felling for each other. The other factor is the media; sometimes couples look towards the press as a guideline to their marraige, so they might get upset when they don't find it actually works out like does in the press. Another reason factor is if you marry a young girl/boy this could be difficult because the younger member of the relationship might still have a lot physical or mental charges to do, they may not be the same person when they are 25 as they were be for. ...read more.

Conclusion

So I think he would be willing to make changes in major circumstances. The teaching is kind of out of date times have changed and as every body changes, I think so should the church and do think hey should keep the basic base line for the rules of marriage but they should integrate fair and still traditional changes. In most cases I don't fink the rules of Jesus last forever because people don't take into account there life they still have to lead ahead of them, people don't seem to realize marriage is until they die, and that means saying with the person for the rest of there life. Marriage is about two peoples love for each other marriage is a commitment and love and trust for each other, marriage shows the people around them their feelings for each other. Conclusion. I have done coursework on marriage and divorce I have gone though the aspects of this subject in great detail. I have done past work on marriage and divorce but not as in detail as I have done now. I have found out that marriage is about twp peoples love for on another and are willing to spend there life's together, I have learned for this to happen trust must pay a large role in this. ...read more.
