I watched a friend slowly die a living death in a cold loveless marriage.
Perhaps she held out hope that love would return.
Perhaps she labored under the same blind allegiance that I did, to the doctrine that marriage must never end, no matter how bad.
I do not take vows lightly, particularly marital vows, but sometimes I wonder if this woman cheated herself out of years of happiness and possibly greater service to the Lord, had she departed.

She is divorced now, has two children, one a brokenhearted rebel, but daughter was a rebel in that hellish home before the divorce.

A niece - ill advised marriage - lasted two boys worth until he moved on leaving her living with her parents and hoping maybe to find a marriage someday. All things considered, she may be better off dumped than stuck.
