A recent article at Forbes.com asked the question, “How much does the average divorce cost?” Just calculating the average legal fees, the estimated price tag was at $15,000 to $30,000.
A closer look reveals other factors that are costly. Court costs, split assets, 401(k) loss, and other potential credit issues can raise the above estimate to over $50.000.
The resulting impact on the family’s future is the more important cost that can not be calculated. Let’s face it, living through a divorce is difficult, disruptive, and life altering for the whole family.
Church leaders and pastors know that communities have been devastated by divorce. When families separate, they are also likely to permanently disconnect from their local church. Many families are missing from local churches as a result of divorce. The cost of declining church membership is dramatic.
Take a moment this week, consider investing in your marriage. If you’re already on board, teach this concept to someone else in your circle of influence. A small investment now can help you avoid a lot of loss and heartache in the future. A marriage enrichment weekend can be a great place to start.
Make good investments in your most important relationship and in a short time, you will be on your way to a transformed marriage!
