Sometimes its not possible to save a marriage.
In no way, shape or form is this post condoning a husband abusing his wife. Violence in any form, is against the word of God!
1 Corinthians 7:10 - To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband.
If you find yourself divorced, then just realize that life is not over.
Pray, ask God to send you a good mate, and keep going,
