  • I guess so... there are only 2 reasons that we consider ok for a divorce. Abuse and/or cheating(repeated..not saying either of us have a cheat card we get to use..we would try to work through it the first time.)

  • My husband and I thought about it but we decided to go the traditonal way. That way if we didnt work out, Divorce would be a lot easier to go through. We wouldnt have to do counseling etc. Just to much involved for us.

  • Generally, when a couple decides to have a covenant marriage, they must attend premarital counseling before getting married. If their marriage is in trouble and they want to divorce, they have to seek counseling and wait for a longer period before a divorce is granted.

  • i guess by the traditional meaning no but we feel we are in a covenant marriage cause we would never just give up on our marriage. also when we get sealed in the temple we are then taking that covenant for eternity
