T.D. Jakes’ daughter Sarah Henson has decided to end her marriage to footballer, Robert Henson after 4 years.
Sarah made the announcement on her website, writing:
“I have built my ministry and identity around being the best wife and a mother I can be. For quite sometime I have tried to steer through some serious troubles at home. As much as I wanted my marriage to last, it cannot. After professional counseling, and prayerful consideration I have decided to end my four-year marriage. There are biblical grounds supporting this decision and I have attempted every other recourse but after multiple infractions over the course of the union, and for my personal safety and that of my children, I have come to this painful decision.”The only biblical ground that i have noticed in the bible is that divorce can only happen if there are issues of infidelity,even at that point I think they should forgive eachother,if they cant bear eachother for four years what do they want the church marriage counselors to preach to those that are heading for a divorce?i am not judging here,i am only giving my own opinion,The bible allows for divorce in a couple instances:
(1) s*xual immorality – adultery, etc (Matthew 5:32; 19:9)
(2) abandonment by an unbeliever (1 Corinthians 7:15)
This is not to say that there are no other circumstances where divorce would become necessary but those two are the reasons that are explicitly stated in the bible.
Robert Henson also released a statement on his website:
“After four years of marriage, my wife, Sarah and I, have decided to transition from being husband and wife to being solely partners in securing a solid foundation for our children. It always has been my earnest desire to be the best possible father and example to my children that I could possibly be, and through my actions, walk before them with dignity and integrity, as well as provide them with security and safety. I will continue to walk in that role in their lives.”
Sarah and Robert have a 3 year old daughter together and she also has an older son, after she got pregnant when she was 14 years old.
