Betrayal and Remarriage
Greg and Lea Bolusan
Mignon McLauhlin said, “A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.” Greg and Lea Bolusan have something to say about that, not only in words, but, by the example of their lives. Over 50% of marriages end in divorce. The percentage increases when it comes to Christians. Distubring. Marriage is tough. Often it is tougher than tough. Yes, for Christ-followers – for everyone. There is no perfect marriage. People do get divorced. We are not condoning it. It happens. The bottom falls out. One or both give up. They say, “It’s not gonna work, it cannot.” Too much hurt, betrayal, and disappointment has accumulated. However, on very rare occasions you may hear of those who get back together.
Note: We do not advocate divorce so that reconciliation may occur. That is why from time to time a period of separation (in the marriage) may be advisable by a professional counselor.
If your are struggling in your marriage, seek help! Here are some suggestions for support:
- A pastor (and their spouse) of your local church
- A military chaplain
- A small group in a Christ-centered Bible believing church
- A marriage seminar
- A parenting seminar
- A professional counselor or therapist
- A trusted friend (who wants to see your marriage grow in strength and believes it can with God’s help)
Greg Bolusan is the Director of Operations at Grace Bible Church Pearlside. Lea is the CAB Senior Property Manager at Wheeler Army Airfield. They have two children: Matthew and Amber.
