Quote :: Divorce

"Ever hear that 50% of U.S. marriages are headed for divorce? It all started one year when somebody at the Census Bureau noticed that there had been 2.4 million marriages and 1.2 million divorces. Comparing those two figures without taking into account the 54 million marriages already in existence gave birth to a quotable, but highly inaccurate, statistic. The fact is only about 2% of existing marriages will fail, and in any given year only one out of eight married couples divorce. As pollster Louis Harris says, 'The idea that half of American marriages are doomed is one of the most specious pieces of statistical nonsense ever perpetuated in modern times.'" - Leadership, Sum 1996 (page 69)

"In three decades of pasturing and counseling couples, there's only one thing we've found truly makes for a lasting marriage. Both people must want to be married to each other more than they want to divorce." - A college professor quoted in Today's Christian Woman, Sept/Oct 1995

"Rabbi Earl Grollman, a professional divorce lecturer and author who believes divorce can be more traumatic than death, says, 'The big difference is, death has closure, it's over. With divorce, it's never over.'" - Charles Swindoll, Strike the Original Match

"Surrendering is not an option if you plan to win a war…or succeed in a marriage. I firmly agree with a San Francisco attorney whom I heard say, 'There are two processes that must never be started prematurely: embalming and divorce.'" - Charles Swindoll, Strike the Original Match
