There's a debate about this topic and i think it's still unresolved. The church doesn't approve of it because it levels down the importanc and holiness of the sacrament of marriage. Because of divorce, many young people tske this advantage and just marry without being truly sure about their relationship/partner. Leading to abuse sometimes/adultery/etc because they didn't really know who and what their partners are. Are you in favor of divorce? Why?

i think i am not in favor of divorce. you are married and been promising to live a life through thick and thin, for richer or poorer, for better or for worst. if divorced should be done legally in our country, marriage will not be a holy matrimony anymore. marriage will be just a trial and error. because everytime you have misunderstandings, you will then of course think of a divorce, which later could regret you in the end.

Many people know their partners as much as their partner lets them before getting married... but people change through time, nothing stays the same; I'm a firm believer of marriage. I'm also a firm believer that God would want his lambs and children to be safe as well.. As for the adultery bit, again, people change. Their needs change through time, so do their desires, and when this shift occurs, compromise must also or the chances of divorce or adultery will probably increase.

That's why i think long relationship is a must. Long enough to know more about your partner and not being hasty about marrying which could lead to some situations that would lead to divorce.

I was with the same person for 5 years before he became abusive. Define long.

I'm sorry. I don't have the right to judge people. And don't have the right to tell them they did wrong because of some things in life. Because that's what life is all about. Why did he become abusive? If you may share.

I am not in favour of divorce and I believe that it does not help in the long run. Marriage is a sacred relationship and it needs to be maintained at all costs. There is no guarantee that if one goes for divorce, he/she would get the partner of his/her choice, the second time. We all have our positive and negative qualities and our respective partners need to adjust with those qualities and we are required to do the same with our partners.

It depends on the situation. I am not exactly pro divorce however I do believe that it divorce is the better option when you are dealing with an abusive situation. I had a friend that got out of an abusive relationship after 25 years. It took her that long because she was a christian that didn't believe in divorce. I do not believe God would want you to live in that situation and to suggest someone stay in an abusive situation because of religious beliefs is absurd.

There are so many excuses for divorce and one thing is abuse. Well, not excuse exactly but reasons. And I don't know about that, it's confusing. SO many things to consider etc.

For me, there wouldn't be a divorce. But for the rest of the world, I believe there should be divorce. Why? because some people who think there is no way out may just try to kill their partner to get free. I think a divorce is necessary if there is abuse, either physical or emotional.

IM NOT INTO A DIVORCE.before we get married we have to be sure that the person we want to be part of our live is him or her. marriage life is not an easy task, we have to strive hard to work it well. and marriage life is the most sacred thing that god gave to us because through that, we can make a new person. people have to learn and know that divorce is not the simpl way to out for the problem, the best way is to pray.

I dont believe in divorce - unless someone cheats or abuses you. People that believe in divorce are just setting themselves up to fail.

I personally don't care what the "church" thinks about my life. I have to live my life. I have to deal with the consequences I make. The church isn't in someone's living room watching some poor woman get the shyt kicked out of her daily due to an abusive marraige. The church won't help a woman who can barely make ends meet as it is with 2 kids let alone 3 who decides to abort her pregnancy so she can continue to support her 3rd kid. The church takes a stance on a lot of things but I don't see the church helping in any way except to shun those who dare go against it.

I believe that every problem has a solution for married people if they are willing to forgive and forget from all the hatred and always willing to start over. how ever, most couples now a days are ego centered people and when things don't work out they way they want to they would immediately want a separation. like some People in the Philippines would prefer Divorce over Annulment..

I am in favour of divorce, because I do not think people should be trapped in a relationship that they are not happy in. However I do not really believe in marriage, so if less people got married then less people would get divorced. I am not religious so I am not against it for any religious matters.

Hi kharen,I am not in favor of divorce.I do not think anybody in the world is in favor to break a holy institution like marriage.But,sometimes you just do not have another choice but to divorce your partner.It is better to divorce one before it is too late to start a new life.
