This month's topic for Marriage Monday: Is divorce ever right? This is a tough topic for me because I don't want to come off sounding judgmental. I am not, nor will I ever be, divorced, and that's a decision I made before I chose a husband. It's not a choice that was ever on the table, and we both agreed on that before we got married. So for me personally, divorce is never right.
But what about for other people? Well, Jesus states pretty clearly that if you are divorced and then remarried, you commit adultery. Pretty harsh, but there you have it. Now obviously, I don't advocate anyone staying married in an abusive situation. But whether they should get remarried, well, I would encourage them to search the scriptures and seek counseling before choosing to do that. Likewise, if you were divorced and remarried before becoming a Christian, you should seek counseling - I honestly don't have answers for that situation.
Remember, if you are a Christian, your marriage is to be a model of Christ's love for the church. He will never come to us and tell us things just aren't working out and He'd like to separate for a while. No matter how many times we sin, He will always take us back. He will never stop loving us. And I think that's an example we can all stand to emulate in our marriages.
