Why A Divorce


There is no act more tragic than...The cold de-
cree… That separates a man and wife...And parts the
family...Some people never seem to care… Or ever
stop to wonder…About the words, “Whom God has
joined...Let no man put asunder”... How can they
just ignore His law… And go their selfish way ...Un-
mindful of the sacred vow...They made one yesterday?
… They must have loved each other once...With
hopes and dreams to treasure...And happiness in sacrifice
… As much as life can measure… And surely if they
tried and prayed… As fervently as then… They could
regain the world they lost… And be in love again.
