The big news out of Hollywood today is that Angelina Jolie Pitt has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, citing “irreconcilable differences”. She said that she made the decision “for the health of the family.”
There is a reported $400 million to be divided up between the two movie stars. That could get interesting. Sadder still is the fact that the couple has 6 children. Angelina is seeking custody of the children, with visitation rights for Brad.
Though the two, commonly called “Brangelina”, have been together for 12 years, they have only been married since August of 2014. Jolie and Pitt have fallen in line with statistics that have been available from recent studies which have found that couples who cohabitate before marriage are much more likely to get a divorce.
Here is yet another example of how God instituted marriage for our benefit. Those who attempt to redefine it, or ignore it altogether, often pay dearly for their mistake.
“Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.”—Hebrews 13:4.
The only thing that surprises me is that it took this long. I’ve never liked Angelina. I liked Brad Ok until he left Jennifer after having an affair with Angelina. I don’t know if cheating was the reason for this break up, but I do know you can’t expect a man to be faithful when he has already proven he isn’t. Anyone who cheats WITH you will cheat ON you.
I bet Jennifer is laughing her butt off.
