Keep in mind, however, that marriage is a sacrament....
That's the problem. It shouldn't be.
The religious view of marriage doesn't work. The secular view is at least an attempt to make it work.

If a church-sanctioned marriage ends in divorce, does that mean it wasn't "God's" marriage? That sounds suspiciously like the No True Scotsman fallacy.
