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.

     “I’m sad in 2019 that Jews and African Americans are united by having been slaughtered in their houses of worship in the United States of America. We share many bonds and, unfortunately, this is one of them.”

     –Beth Kissileff Perlman, wife of Rabbi Jonathan Perlman of New Light Congregation at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, quoted in the Charleston Post and Courier. New Light members shared an MLK Day service with Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C.
