TAKE TWO THINGS SERIOUSLY, EVEN WHEN YOU'RE JOKING: MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE
Inspired by Muhammad (s)
Some partners seem to think that the only solution to problems is divorce. From the moment something doesn’t feel right they divorce, or at least they threaten with it. The truth is that using these terms, or saying things like: go away, leave … were never healing. They only magnify the problem. Muhammad (sas) said:
“Two things are supposed to be taken seriously, even when they are said as a joke, they are taken seriously: marriage and divorce.”
This is why we shouldn’t add these words to our dictionary until they are needed, or became a real thought.
