    If someone isn't willing to ditch his/her pride and selfishness, relationship counselling, therapy, self-help books about marriage, etc. are a complete waste of money. Divorces are generally caused by pride and/or selfishness. It is REALLY that simple.

    Some peple are just toxic for each other - whether a temple marriage or not. Divorce can be a good thing for all involved. The painfull part is a bishop or other authority breathing down your neck on keeping it together when you know it is not a good fit. Freedom is all I can say, FREEDOM!

    I think Pastor Meyers sounds like one smart guy.

    The whole idea of a courtship is to determine whether your fiancé is a "good fit". Children deserve to grow up in a normal environment with bio-parents who love and respect each other. The time to exercise freedom is before you make commitments you are expected to keep.

    Hmmmm. My child who was adopted at birth might have something to say about that. BTW my wife and I have been married 26 years and we didn't need anyone telling us that we had to stay married.

    remember never put children between you and your spouse. always say i love you with sweetness, never go to bed or anywhere angry with your eternal sweetheart, study scriptures together, share your thoughts and fears, pray together, attend a temple together often. these are just some of the words of advice president stratford gave my husband and i 34 years ago.

    Waiting until you are fully grown up before marrying also helps. Most people are not fully grown up until at least 25 years of age.
