(just thought I’d express my opinions about the recent Jon and Kate divorce)
Dear Jon and Kate,
As one of your many viewers, we were saddened with the announcement of your divorce. We think that the rumors and the media being in your personal life had a lot to do with it, but we still can’t help but feel in shock with how things turned out.
Being a part of a church family, we hope you have been given every opportunity to go through counseling to work things out.
When we marry the person that we do, we vow “”For better, or for worse.” This being said, we shouldn’t expect everything to be all sunshine and rainbows without the gloom and the rain.
Nobody is perfect, but God can find our perfect match. When we decide to marry an individual, we marry all of them, their best, their worse, and things that come in between. It’s not up to us to change our partners others; it’s all up to them to do that. The only thing we can do is to keep them in prayer and pray that God will speak to them so they will change. When you continue to put God in the center of your marriage, you can always find comfort in knowing that God will work things out. He never allows us to go through hardship if He knows we can’t overcome.
In any relationship when everything is fine and then people change negatively, they end up hurting the ones they love. And when people are hurt it’s easy to say and do things out of anger.
So it is understandable to need the time to be apart. You can use this time to reflect, pray and seek help. You can also remember the reasons why you fell in love and the vows you took that day when you said I DO
Hard as it may seem, it’s during such trying time when love comes to play. Christ loves us so much even if we keep hurting him. Yet he constantly loves us and welcomes us back with open arms.
Your wedding is sacred and God has brought you guys together for a purpose. It’s up to you to make things work. It might take some time, but please don’t give up too easily.
You’ll be in our prayers through this difficult time for you and your family.
