There is an Old Testament text that addresses the importance of vows. This is born out in the commandments to believers that we find regarding marriage in Ephesians 5:22-33 and Colossians 3:18-19. When one has been upset by a mate, a much better solution to resolve the problem is for the hurt spouse to describe how the problem affects him or her rather than criticizing what the spouse has done. We are held accountable for our words.
In order to be obedient to His command, we must endeavor, by the grace of God, to be separated wholly unto Him, regardless of the cost or the scorn of man. That very day two of them were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, and they were talking with each other about all these things that had happened. If sins are repented of and maybe even confessed to a potential spouse before marriage, then these forgiven sins cannot be the basis for a later divorce. For this reason God allowed them to divorce and remarry. While they were talking and discussing together, Jesus himself drew near and went with them. It is depressing to be around someone who is always negative in his or her thinking.
All Christians, men or women, belonged to Christ, and all other forms of ownership must be made to accommodate this. Show your love to your wife again. Let's look at this issue more closely. The solution to any marriage problem is to first examine the self-to take an honest look to see where the fault really lies. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it.

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
As a Christian and a wife, what does forgiveness mean to her and her marriage according to the Bible. It will be possible for a disobedient Christian to lose reward at the Judgment Seat of Christ because of compromised fellowship, either directly or by identification 2 Jn.

Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. They must be free of hardheartedness.
Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. The prophet Malachi warned: This is another thing you do. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Yet how many young women today know little or nothing about meal preparation, running a household, or rearing children? They need to be asking themselves these questions: What kind of person would I like to marry? We generally cannot change what others do, but we can change ourselves. But this is a grievous error if the result of such reasoning is contrary to the plain teaching of the Word of God. She is caught in between forgiveness. Of course, a Christian wife would not be honoring God or the marriage arrangement if she exaggerated the seriousness of her domestic problems just to live separately from her husband, or vice versa.

Just this week I heard a phrase that isn't found in scripture but seems to be a good one for this situation. What is sinful is if one or both of the parties remarry.

But as true Christians, we are today spiritual Israelites and Jews—regardless of our race or ethnic background.
If the abusive spouse is a Christian, congregation elders should investigate the charges. The word bound comes from a root word that means to be a servant and denotes a permanent servile relationship. Dealing with these issues is not Legalism, but rather it is seeking to apply Biblical principles of godliness to our everyday Christian walk and witness. At that time, God accepts the Christian in the state in which he is compare the principle in 1 Corinthians 7:20-24 —and if he is married, he is called by God as a married person—and he is not free before God to subsequently divorce his spouse, except for biblical reasons.
