‘Don’t stress, HopefulGirl, you’ll meet somebody quickly – the divorces are coming straight straight back on the market everyday! ’ declared my buddy, happily.
‘Great, ’ I sighed. ‘Divorce, broken families and shattered ambitions – and me personally choosing through the carnage. There’s something to check forward to. ’
Divorce is a subject that is touchy Christians. Some believe, when hitched, one is never absolve to marry once again unless their spouse dies – and no exceptions. Others think Jesus does not condemn us become solitary forever whenever we, or our previous spouse, made mistakes or behaved poorly. It’s a tangle that is theological perhaps perhaps not qualified to unpick – we each need to exercise our personal judgement.
We knew it had been unjust: numerous people’s marriages end against their might, and through no fault of one’s own.
