Over half of marriages end in DIVORCE.

Over half of the marriages now end in divorce, so your metaphor is perfect: When one side of a marriage, friendship, relationship breaks their commitment to that union by not honoring the covenants of that union, the unchanged side has a decision to make: stay in where previously followed rules and norms no longer apply, or leave. If the contract is ignored by one side, the other side can adjust and amend, putting their own values aside,or void that contract. Happens all the time. It is happening regularly now in the UMC "family" and so there is an increasing number of members, and even whole churches, filing for divorce, taking their Faith and their pledges with them in search of more "traditional" marriage.

Notable Quotes   


    Bishop Kenneth L. Carder "Those who use hate-filled tactics to 'defend truth'" whether in politics or religion, betray the essence of truth. Truth and love are conjoined twins giving life to one another. They are heart and brain working in concert; severing them means death to both."

– Retired United Methodist Bishop Kenneth Carder on Facebook.
