A Hopeless Romantic

I’m a hopeless romantic; ‘our song’ still quickens my pulse and I like chocolate hearts.

Stores will likely be marking down prices on Valentine’s candy by tonight. Left over chocolates might melt and go to waste... I have good news; the flame of romance can be rekindled. Men and women can keep their marriage vows.

“The Pharisees also came to Him, testing Him, and saying to Him, ‘Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?’

And He answered and said to them, ‘Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.’

They said to Him, “Why then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?’

He said to them, “Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery (Matthew 19:3-9 NKJV).”
