The biggest factor as to why we should not consider divorce is because of our faith and it is not unrighteous in the eyes of God. First, marriage is one of the Seven Sacraments that all Christians celebrate and hold dear. Marriage, according to American Catholic, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to another person. It is especially sacred to Christians because having a church wedding means a person is not only making a promise to his/her future spouse but also to God.
An interview with Archbishop Socrates Villegas, the president of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines revealed the church’s opinion on the issue, saying that divorce makes a mockery of marriage. If divorce is allowed, the sanctity of marriage will be lost. It won’t seem like such an important decision to some because one can always “undo” and “redo”. Secondly, couples will soon choose the easy way out of a situation. The simplest problems will have the power to break marriages apart because couples would see divorce as an option, instead of working through the problem as a team.
As a result of that, more and more couples will end in divorce and will set a bad example for their children. Future generations will put less importance on marriage when they mature and the cycle just continues.
