The American Journal of health recently reported the sad results of a long term survey. It said when parents are divorcedespecially if the parents divorced before the children where twenty-onethe children involved tended to have shorter life spans by more than four years than children who did not experience parental divorce.
Strangely the same findings did not bear out for children who lost parents due to death. Divorce creates a lot of stress and unhealthy behaviors as well. The researchers believe that social isolation created by divorce might be responsible for the results of the survey. Whatever the reason, the point is even years down the line the effects are felt.
The Bible says, God hates divorce. And this is just one more reason why.
