God is in the business of reconciliation, but does not ask people to stay in an abusive marriage. If abuse if verbal or physiological and can be helped by counseling, then this is a good option before moving toward divorce. If someone is being emotionally abused they are free to leave the marriage and should leave the marriage as soon as possible.
how long have you been in the relationship? How long has it been abusive? What exactly does that mean? Chances are, if things were good in the beginning, that there are some underlying issues that, once dealt with, the relationship can be stronger and better than ever before. Have you ever broken a bone? Medical science has proven that the bone is stronger in the place of the break after it heals than it was before the break. A relationship can be the same way-once the issues are dealt with and a new foundation is built, the passion, trust, intimacy, and love increase! Check out my article on here called, "When is it time to call it quits?" I wish for you a life filled with Gratitude, Abundance, and Passion! <3

Divorce, like war, is hell. When children are involved in Before, during, and beyond divorce, support and sound counseling become essential for all involved. Hopefully the church, if engaged by the parties, becomes one of many providers of support and counseling. However, do not assume that the church, churchgoers, and religious leaders will deliver the care and guidance you seek. Communities that espouse inerrancy as a core tenant of their identity are especially prone to promoting a “until death do us part” approach to the marriage union unless narrow grounds for dissolution are met. This may become man emotional death sentence – or worse – for those caught in the spin cycle of abuse and/or addiction. God doesn’t want us to be miserable.
