The question of “marriage and divorce” is one of the toughest issues that faces the Igbo church in the 21st century. Unfortunately, not all Christian couples continue to the injunction, “What God has joined together, let no one put asunder” (Matthew 19:6; Mark 10:1-12; Luke 16:18; I Cor. 7:10-11). Some Christian couples believe that it is biblically permissible to marry and divorce when a couple becomes incompatible at any stage in their married life (Arnold 2001:183-190).
