H4HK FAQs are designed to answer questions kids and teens ask when facing difficult situations and circumstances in their lives.
That is a fair question, and if you’ve gone to church and/or believe in God you may very well have asked yourself that question since your parents separated or got divorced. Where was God? Why didn’t He stop the divorce? Why didn’t He answer my prayers? Maybe you even blame your parents’ divorce on God? Maybe you wonder how a loving God could let your family fall apart like it has.
In order to understand where God was when your parents divorced, you must first understand God’s view of divorce and His love for all people.
God Hates Divorce
The Bible is clear that God hates divorce. He hates all sin, and divorce is a sin. Divorce is one of many sins that God does not like, but sin is basically anything that God wants us to do that we don’t do and things He doesn’t want us to do that we do. This sin separates us from God and can hurt us and/or the people around us which is one of the reasons God hates it.
