Ron: What right do you Christians have to tell us about marriage you can’t even get it right yourself?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Have you ever heard that argument? It’s based on the belief that the divorce rate for Christian marriages is the same as for non-Christians. Well, that’s just not true. Actually, those who practice their faith on a daily basis and regularly attend church, their divorce rate is just 15-20 percent. Far lower than the general population.

Hey, don’t let people put you back on your heels. Those who live the gospel within their marriage and family are happier and healthier than those who don’t. Your marriage can be a living testimony to the love of God. Let’s share it. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
