The "D" Word Does Not Exist

I've been reading the Sermon on the Mount recently and the bit on divorce (read it here) has stuck out to me. 

In my marriage, the "D" word doesn't exist.

We sometimes argue.
Our feelings get hurt.
But the "D" word is not uttered.

The "D" word doesn't exist.
Jesus said it was offered because hearts were hard.
The "D" word doesn't exist.

Without the "D" word, we need to work it out and compromise.
Without the "D" word, we need to choose to love.
The "D" word doesn't exist.

The "D" word is tied to fairy tale endings & the feeling of passion.
The "D" word is attractive when the going gets tough.
The "D" word doesn't exist.

The "D" word should not be uttered lightly.
The "D" word should not be considered except for circumstances of adultery.
The "D" word doesn't exist.

In my marriage, "Divorce" isn't in our vocabulary.
