Consider what we know about divorce in the United States:

> In 1998 2.2 million couples married and 1.1 million divorced.

> In 2000, 58 million couples were married yet separated and another 21 million couples were divorced.

> People between the ages of 25 to 39 account for 60% of all divorces.

> Over 1 million children are affected by divorce each year.

> More people are in their 2nd marriage than 1st. (www. dicorcenter.com)

With divorce being so common today, nearly half of all marriages end in divorce, is there any hope?

> A greater number of divorces occur within the Christian church than marriages outside the church. (George Barna)

Divorce is a real problem that cannot be ignored.
