It is better than divorce, and many times absence makes the heart grow fonder. People learn they really do love each other and it is no fun living alone. I have seen it happen many times. 

Having been married for 60 years, there is nothing better than keeping the wife of your youth. I was 18 and she was 17. We dated all through high school and were married when she graduated.

We have both been faithful to each other all those years. God's ways really are the best ways. But not all work out that way, and there are cases where divorce is the only solution. I have nothing but compassion for them.
