God says he hates divorce (Malachi 2:16). Jesus tells his followers that Moses only permitted divorce because of the hardness of their hearts, and that divorce and remarriage constituted adultery (Matthew 19). Yet our culture has become more and more pro-divorce since no fault divorces laws were first passed (under Gov. Ronald Reagan in 1969). Divorce has lost its stigma.

Dr. Diane Medved has written a comprehensive antidote to the “grass is greener” propaganda with her latest book, Don’t Divorce: Powerful Arguments for Saving and Revitalizing Your Marriage.

Married for 30 years to nationally syndicated radio host Michael Medved (who was a guest on Episode 002 of the show, talking about his new book The American Miracle: Divine Providence in the Rise of the Republic,  Dr. Medved doubles down on the message of her 1989 book The Case Against Divorce.

If you’re in a troubled marriage and are tempted to part ways, or you’re looking for data-driven reasons why divorce is a calamity for the whole family (and often for the friends of the divorcing couples), she has amassed an impressive array of evidence from the social sciences and her own practice.

In this interview, the observantly Jewish clinical psychologist makes all the important distinctions and offers actionable responses for couples undergoing trials within their marriages. This is a great one share with them!
