How Does God Really Feel About Divorce?

distant couple

I’m in desperate need of prayer. I’m a 30 something year old woman and have been married to my husband for 7 years. Problem is, I haven’t been in love with him for about 5 of those  years. I asked him for a divorce, we started the process, and then I stopped the divorce for fear of  dissappointing God. My husband has not cheated on me (not that I know of). He’s a good man . I’m just not in love with him anymore. I don’t want to have sex with him and I know he deserves someone who will love him whole heartedly. We have tried counseling, date nights, anything that should bring the love back, but nothing helps. It just makes me angrier and want a divorce even more. My questions are…. Does God really want me to stay unhappy in a marriage I probably shouldn’t have been in, in the first place? Is this the way He would want me to live the rest of my life? Can I remarry? I’m feeling trapped and want out. Before you judge me, just know that there is no one else, I’ve never cheated. I just think I married the wrong person. I can’t help how I feel. I can cover it up, which is what I have been doing for 5 years, but I’m tired of doing that. Isn’t staying married to someone you don’t love, stopping their happiness worse than divorcing them and setting them free? It’s selfish. How can this actually be okay with God? How does God really feel about divorce?
