1 Corinthians 7:15 & 16
But if the unbeliever leaves, let him do so. A believing man or
woman is not bound in such circumstances; God has called us to live in peace. How do you
know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or, how do you know, husband, whether
you will save your wife?
We see, from this passage, that the home is to be a place of love
not a battle zone. Paul tells the believer that, if their non-Christian spouse wants to
leave, then let them go but, if they want to stay, show them the love of Jesus in hopes
that they might be saved. There are many who will take this passage and try to force
Christians to stay in a marriage that does not honor God but we must remember that God
has never asked His people to live in a "marriage hell".
