Being a divorced person for 6 years, I think I can paint a pretty accurate picture of some of the typical traits I see in divorced men.
I think all Christians would agree that God's ideal for marriage is "one man and one woman, living together in marriage until parted by death." We see this emphasized by our Lord in Matthew 19:3-12.
