Some people get into marriage out of impulse and some people divorce out of impulse too. Rather than allowing emotions to take over in decision-making when it comes to marriage, I believe engaged couples should attend pre-marriage counseling to know what they are getting into. This gives them more insight and preparation of the nuances and realities of married life. In a covenant marriage, a couple can only divorce if one commits adultery, felony, substance abuse and physical or sexual abuse. Therefore, couples who are wedded through a covenant marriage are more committed, responsible and will enjoy a long-lasting and stable relationship.
Yes a covenant marriage is a good idea, because the people involved have to take their marriage more seriously. People who enter into a covenant marriage invest time in premarital counseling before they get married. They are less likely to want to get divorced from something that they have invested so much time in.
I believe that covenant marriages are unnecessary because if people love each other, they will stay together. Limiting the reasons that someone could get out of a marriage, just hurts one or both of the parties involved. It could be very detrimental to a partner who is having a difficult time staying with the person that they are married to if things don't work out between them. Sometimes, it really is best to walk away from a relationship that is unhealthy.
