Last December, Jeffrey A. posted a marriage restoration testimonial from his parents on the wall of the Love What Matters page that said: "My parents were married for more than 20 years, divorced, had a lot of arguments, went to work on themselves, years later they started dating, and yesterday it happened ... Congratulations Mom and Dad! "
The video has been watched over 2.5 million times! But what touched me the most is the avalanche of testimonys of restoration that poured into the thread of this video. These testimonies show that it is possible to live a restoration in his marriage even after a divorce! It's possible. I share some nuggets below (translated from English by me).
So to you who are in the breach to save your marriage, do not lose heart! Amen? what God has promised you in your moments of prayer, He will certainly accomplish it. Amen?
Everything is possible for those who believe. (Mark 9:23) Click to tweet
And if your parents have divorced and you have a heart to pray for them to recover together, testimonials from people who have seen a miracle in this area will also encourage you!
Testimonials of wedding restoration after a divorce
My husband and I were married young, we had been together for 15 years, we separated, then we divorced. We got together again in 2010, we remarried in 2013 and we have never been happier than today. Sometimes you have to lose what you have to realize how good it was to have it.
We were married for 12 years when we separated, and divorced 5 years later. I remarried but it was a bad marriage that did not last. Today, 15 years after our separation, we are remarried. It took a few years to get to that point and there are still things we will need to work on, but we will work with them together. - Angie
My husband and I were married 20 years, divorced for 17 years and have been back together for 3 years. Absolutely wonderful !!!!!!! - Jeannie
This testimony makes me smile. I feel so concerned. My husband and I were married in 1983, divorced in 2001, and remarried in 2011. I will spare you all the details / reasons why all this happened (it's not pretty). All I can say is that there is no way to separate from the soul mate that God has given you and we become wise. - Shana.
Truly, I say to you, if you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you would say to this mountain: Carry yourself by then, and it would be transported; nothing would be impossible for you. (Matthew 17:20)
My parents were married for 31 years before separating ... Disputes, addictions ... they went through a lot of things those years. In the fall of 2016, my dad asked my sisters and me if he could start dating our mother. They had been separated for 5 years. He remodeled a year ago and I have never seen them so happy. They should renew their vows! - Katy

It's so good to see so many couples recovering together. I am often taken back for the fact that I am friends with my ex-husband. We divorced after 17 years and it was hard for many years. But this month we recognized that we would have celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary. We "go out together" and move together simply because love is never dead even though our legal status has been. - Laura
I, too, married at a young age. After 20 years of marriage my husband left me and we were divorced. I waited for 6 years knowing he was my soulmate and the man God gave me. We remarried in 2016. We are now happier than before. True love is possible. - Tammy K.

My husband and I got married young, and in less than a year we divorced. We remarried a little over a year after the divorce and celebrated our 19e wedding anniversary this year. Sometimes you have to fall in order to find yourself. Thank God for the restoration. - Tammy L.
I met him on May 16, 2011. He made a marriage proposal on July 16, 2011. (Yes, you read it correctly, 2 months later). We were married on May 11, 2012. Then we filed for divorce on May 12, 2017, the day after our 5th birthday. Our wedding was difficult from the beginning. We were two different people going in two different directions. In September, once the divorce was finalized, he reached out to me. After a long day of perseverance, I decided to go there and meet him. He apologized and took responsibility for this divorce. By the time he said, "I took you for granted," I melted! Tears ran down my face, I took in my arms. The healing started that day! We are not perfect, I am not perfect, but we both want to fight for it - for us - for the wedding! We attend marriage classes and we have mentors.We are now for and not against each other. We want what God wants. His will and his will is reconciliation. Yes! I believe that everyone's testimony is different. I think everyone's story is so beautiful! We remarried in January 2018! New start ! I am so happy for them- reconciliation is so powerful! - Rachel
