The Reality: Fifty percent of those who marry today will divorce. On the stress scale, divorce and separation are ranked 2nd and 3rd. Only the death of a spouse is rated higher. More than 80 percent of those who are divorced will remarry within three years and 65 percent of those marriages will fail again. More than a million children each year are involved in divorce and more than 13 million children under 18 live with one parent so that single parent families are growing at a rate twenty times faster than two parent families. We have lost sight of the true meaning of the marriage commitment. In this book Bro. Ronald H. Taurel skillfully interprets and explains the covenant relationship between a man and a woman in the eyes of God. Inside you will discover: Marriage as a covenant relationship held in high regard by God. The importance of the marriage oath. The importance and meaning of the woman's hymen and virginity. The true meaning and significance of the wedding rings. Examples of leaning on each other and facing challenges together with God. The principle of Leaving and Cleaving This is a must-read for anyone entering into the covenant of marriage and a reminder for couples who have already taken this important step. Bro Ronald H.
