How do we defend our faith on what the bible teaches about divorce?

Matthew Chapter 19:3-6

3 Some Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?”

4 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female, and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

This article seems to be a fair treatment. What are your thoughts @Ashishraj?

I think the best defense of Christian marriage in the eyes of unbelievers may be to simply live out a beautiful marriage in front of them - to truly lay down our lives for our wives and for wives to honor their husbands - for both to submit to one another. An unbeliever could not fully understand why they should obey God’s commands until they know God, but they can certainly tell if two people really love each other and if their home has a peace and unity in it - the presence of the Spirit in the way that two people treat one another and others.
