Why is the divorce rate so high? The simple answer is that it is our culture and it’s lack of belief in God, yet a more complex answer is needed if we are to stop it. I have been pondering this question for quite some time now and I believe I have somewhat of a sufficient answer. First we have to make the statement that intercourse is to make children and further bond a couple in marriage. In a society that uses sex for everything from advertising to a recreational activity, this marital act is all but only for when you are serious and want children.
