Many times I have heard or see couples go their separate ways after what seems like a beautiful marriage and when asked the reason for the separation , they simply say due to irreconcilable difference. I have always wondered what those words meant, irreconcilable differences? Is this irreconcilable differences enough for you to quit your marriage? An institution honorable before God and man? Are you sure these difference can’t really be sorted out or you are quick to look for the exit door rather persevering to solve the issue at hand?
Remember marriage is both a source of joy and tribulation and when you took your vows you sure agree with me and knew that there were going to be worse situations in your marriage and that was why you said the vow ”for Better for Worse”
It is time to quit only if the irreconcilable difference has to do with infidelity and the partner involved is not remorseful and not willingly to change, at this point it is acceptable for you to quit but not compulsory as there has been cases of spouses who put up with such partners and their marriage turned out successful.Instead of quitting in some situations that exclude infidelity such as having a partner who has become destitute because of gross laziness and bad habits or gamble away the family’s income or use it to support an addiction to drugs or alcohol and have refused to change or is extremely violent towards you, you can seek for a legal separation.
This is better than quitting your marriage entirely because you can still make up again with your partner , hence do not quit or leave your marriage on flimsy excuses as the only acceptable ground for divorce is infidelity and really there are no rules. You can still forgive your spouse and enjoy a successful married life.
