“In my heart, I do not believe in divorce.” It is a statement that Khloe Kardashian wrote about her Christian faith and beliefs about marriage. She admitted that it was and is still very difficult for her to divorce Lamar Odom. Still, she thinks that’s what she needed to do.
It’s not uncommon. Marriages end all the time between people who do not “believe” in divorce, yet they do it anyway. Whether it’s for their physical, financial or emotional well-being, they come out of the marriage that does not work and move on.
Back in the day, people pulled him out. They endured no matter how hard or treacherous the marriage was. And even today, there are those who are still in it until death literally takes one of them.
My question is … is this philosophy outdated? Should a person leave a relationship that she has sworn before God and others (who was there) keep? Or, is it refreshing to see someone hold the relationship, no matter what?
Here is what I think …
I think it’s both. I think it’s a bit dated to stay in a relationship that no longer serves any of you. And, I think it’s refreshing when people decide to roll up their sleeves and arrange things, no matter how messy they are.
This quote from Khloe says a ton …
“But I got to a point in my marriage where I had to make the choice to take care of my own mental and emotional well-being in order to protect myself and my happiness.”
