UK News: Divorce Advice Up 25% Following Lockdown

One impact of the coronavirus lockdown in the UK is an increase in couples considering getting a divorce. Marriage rates are already quite low in Britain and obviously the stress of this period is causing many to reconsider their wedding vows.

Citizens Advice disclosed to the BBC that searches for divorce guidance have risen by 25% in the first week of September over the same period in 2019.

This highlights the frustration, unhappiness, and difficulty people are experiencing. People need the help and hope that Christ can give. His truth and gospel can bring radical change to lives, marriages, and families. Please pray for the British people and come help us reach them with the gospel.
