Voddie Bauchum on divorce:

I have had men that come to me and I speak very plainly to men who come to me on these issues because we don’t get it. Men will come to me and say things like, “You know, I am through. I am finished. I am done. She is not this. She is not that. She is not the other. I am not fulfilled. I am not happy.”

To which I respond, “Suck it up and go love your wife.”

“No, you don’t understand, brother.”

“No, I do understand. You said for better or for worse, right? This is worse. Go love your wife. You said sickness and health, right? This is sickness. Go love your wife. You said till death do us part. She is still living. You are not through yet. Go love your wife.”

“Yeah, but you don’t understand, brother. There is no way that God would want me to remain in this marriage and be unhappy.”

“Really? Let me see if I get this straight. The spotless, sinless Lamb of God, the Father crushed and killed for sin that was not his own, but you he wouldn’t want unhappy. Who do you think you are? Unhappy may be right where God needs you to bring maximum glory to his own name. She is a member of his body and she is a member of you. You should sooner cut off your arm than abandon that woman.”
