Running around without being divorced

Several months ago I met someone who has absolutely no respect for any vows whatsoever. Seems or so he said that he was married and his wife just didn't care anymore. So he is running around like he is dating without being divorced. I broached the subject with him and his reason was. . . get this. . . he would rather do this than get divorced because he was Catholic and getting divorced was a large caliber sin. Can someone enlighten me on this? It seems strange.

I think this guy isnt all about "running around without getting divorced", he really doesnt want to in the first place. Its not about religion or something. Becuase if you look deeper, he is just a poor guy wanting to get his wife attention by going around dating.

It is strange. You're thinking just fine. He's the one who needs to be enlightened.

I think being unfaithful is also a large caliber sin. I also don't get that guy. He should just get a divorce.

I think people should start being real with themselves. I mean, really? Isn't marraige considered sacred in ANY religion? Just do what makes you happy; forget about commiting sins. And in his case, he's committing a HUGE sin (infidelity) just because he's too scared of committing a different sin (divorce). In my opinion, infidelity is MUCH more of a sin than divorce, but I'm not catholic.

I can't say this is any good reason. But,at least his religion means something to him. I know people who don't get divorced because they don't want to pay the spouce any support. They say it is cheaper to keep her.
