This hard-hitting booklet is designed to persuade people who are pursuing divorce—on other than biblical grounds—to reconsider their plans. Lou Priolo lays out the consequences of an unbiblical divorce and refutes nine common justifications that he has heard in his many years of biblical counseling. He also addresses the issue of being "in love" with someone other than one's spouse.

The Resources for Biblical Living booklet series addresses a wide range of practical life issues in a straightforward, down-to-earth, and, most of all, biblical manner.


“Lou Priolo’s direct but fair counsel contained within these pages is much needed for so many professing believers today. Biblical, practical, straightforward, and timely are the main qualities that these brief booklets will offer to those who read them. If you’re looking for a relevant word for your difficult path, read them hopefully and receive much needed direction. After you’ve read them, by placing these booklets into the hands of a hurting friend, you may also be giving that person just the thing he or she desperately needs in order to receive a ready word for a difficult situation.”

—Lance Quinn, president, National Association of Nouthetic Counselors

“Lou Priolo brings over two decades of counseling experience, a deep knowledge of Scripture, and a love for God’s people to his writing. You’ll find these little booklets very helpful, whether for yourself or to give to a friend. I heartily recommend them.”

—Elyse Fitzpatrick, author of Idols of the Heart, A Steadfast Heart, and Love to Eat, Hate to Eat
