Elder Paisios on Marriage and Divorce

Elder Paisios on Marriage:

"At the center of the family must be Christ. Problems are untangled by the spiritual father. A couple must have the same spiritual father.

Elder Paisios on Divorce:

-Why, Elder, are couples divorcing?

-People divorce, my child, because they are selfish and egotistical; from nothing else. Any other reason comes from the evil one in order to justify oneself.

Monk Moses the Athonite on Marriage and Divorce:

"Marriage is an arena for exercising humility, mutual leeway and mutual respect, and not the parallel journey of two egotisms despite a lifelong coupling and coexistence. The devil dances for joy whenever there is no forgiveness in human weaknesses and in everyday mistakes."
