I wanted to open a new thread on this subject because:
a) I've heard a LOT of comments from people concerning the reasons for divorce
b) I know this topic was being discussed before in other threads, and I wanted to keep it general.
I've heard from many Christians (Not Coptic though) that after many years of marriage, they've decided to leave their spouse because their spouse did not share their love for Christ.
Is that honestly a right reason to divorce? Even if a partner, in a marriage, loses his/her faith in Christ DURING the marriage, that is no reason for divorce either, as if you yourself love Christ, then you'll be righteous and stick with the person whom you married.
Even if you did not marry a person who was Christian, yet you had kids together, surely Christ would prefer that you remained together and not divorce over Him!??
Am I missing something, or is it OK to go and divorce someone because all of a sudden they don't love Christ as much as you??
