I understand the death until us part in the marriage vows, but would a church ever go so far as to recommend divorce?
> Domestic violence
> Drug.or substance abuse
I think if a spouse continued to engage in infidelity and/or substance abuse my church would recomend divorce. The church usually encourages counseling first.
For domestic violence, that is a little different because it is putting a spouse and possibly children in danger, which can end up fatal.
Apostasy, not so much. It says in the bible if a believer lives with a non beleiver and the NB is willing to stay with them, they should stay together.
Other churches have different ideas about these things, though. I know a certain religion where apostasy and infidelity is an immediate deal breaker and you can get your marriage annuled. Often a spouse who wants a divorce will "pad" their case a bit with the church so that they can be granted an annulement and get married again.
My church, that is a building isn't it?
Churches should have no say in that at all. Marriage is a legal contract first and foremost. When or if to divorce is up tot he couple only and no outsider, be it church, relatives or friends, should make a descison for a couple. People can at least provide support and listen but churches, being buildings, cannot.
yes all of the above i did my 1st husband beat the **** out of me ever day so i divorce him and i got married the 2nd time in a church
None of the above - they 99.9% of the time recommend intense counseling - and when that fails they recommend more counseling
HAH! Churches?!?! They lack the logic to recommend it when it's needed, which simply put, is when that sh*t ain't workin out.
abuse of spouse or offspring
high crime (like murder or rape)
serious drug abuse that
hasn't improved after intervention
