Why Does God Allow Divorce?
Why does God allow divorce to happen? This is a question that puzzles every Catholic that has ever been abandoned by their spouse and left to put the pieces back together again.
God allows divorce primarily because He has given us all the gift of free will and He will never revoke it or intrude upon it. This translates, of course, to the fact that humans will often choose what is wrong over what is good.
Divorce happens because someone made a terrible choice, but every time a poor choice is made, it is an opportunity for God to bring about great things, even miracles in the lives of those who are suffering. Have faith that God will bring good things out of what has happened. It’s His specialty.
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
