Divorce Care

No one steps into the lifelong commitment of marriage expecting it to fail. A quick look at traditional marriage vows is proof: “I _______, take you__________, to be my lawfully wedded (wife/husband) to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer or poor, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part.” There is strong language of enduring commitment woven into the vows that most people recite on their wedding day. Those words are full of hope, unwavering resolve, and permanency.

But the fact is, many people find themselves facing life in the wake of a failed marriage. Recent studies show that approximately 40% of first time marriages end in divorce.  Divorce often comes with blame, hurt, regret, messiness, cynicism, resentment… the list goes on and on. No matter what or who is responsible for the failure of the marriage, both people are left to figure out what life looks like on the other side of the severed relationship. Life beyond a separation or divorce can feel overwhelming, lonely, and confusing.

But what if hope and healing were possible?

If you find yourself sifting through the pieces of a failed marriage, you don’t have to figure it out alone. The first step is often the hardest; moving toward other people when you have just experienced a broken relationship.

At Providence, we recognize life comes with challenges, struggles, and brokenness. But we also believe wholeheartedly that God extends hope for wholeness and thriving. And we want to walk with you along that journey.

One of the ways we offer help is through a nationally recognized support group experience called DivorceCare. DivorceCare provides a safe environment for you to process your separation or divorce with others and move toward healthy recovery.
