Think about it. What does God say?
Is it ok to divorce because of spouse abuse?
Is it ok to divorce because of child abuse?
Is it ok to divorce because of money spending issues?
Is it ok to divorce because of mental health reasons?
No. The only time God said yes, ok, divorce, is in the case of adultery. But even then, what does God say about others sinning against us? We're supposed to forgive the offender 70 x 7 times. If a person has actually forgiven another person 490 times for something, and you really consider what Jesus did on the cross, then our forgiveness of others has only just barely scratched the surface of what Jesus did.
If you think about it, banning divorce isn't at all against God's revealed will for us in the Bible. God's plan is one man for one woman, till death do they part, regardless of the details between marriage and death. In his graciousness to us, he has provided an out via adultery, should we choose to take it; however, even that isn't what he really desires for us.
