What's your guys's opinion on divorce? Would you be willing to get one if things went bad?

I would try to work it out first- counseling, talking to each other- but if that failed, then yes. Or if I wanted a divorce on the grounds of a cheating or abusive spouse, then forget the counseling.

In general, no. "What God has joined together, let no man rend asunder." 
There are certain situations when it's best for a couple to separate, so the Catholic Church allows separation. A civil divorce is even acceptable if necessary (like, say, in order to keep the children safe). But there has to be a really grave reason for it, and unless the marriage is invalid (in which case it didn't really exist), there's no remarrying allowed while both spouses live.
Obviously that's all based on Catholic teaching. :)
