What are the implications of a Christian wife wanting a divorce?

I am Christian, yet I do not want to be with my husband anymore.


Answer by  Gilda (113)

One who is a Christian wants to be recognized as being a follower and imitator of Christ. According to Jesus Christ's own words in Matthew 19:9, the only grounds for divorce is fornication. Knowing how Jesus and his Father feel about it should help that Christian woman to work things out with her husband.

In today's world, many Christian sects have no problem with divorce. Even in the Catholic Church, you can get a marriage annulled depending on the circumstances. Your marriage is both civil and religious. In the realm of the state, you can get divorced by seeing a lawyer and working out a settlement. Within your church, talk to your pastor.

It depends on what your priorities are. If your husband is a good man and loves you, but you no longer love him, you need to ask if you want to make an effort to make the marriage work or not and how it will effect your relationship with God.

Unfortunatly, divorce is so common nowadays, that there is no negative connotation to being divorced. You just need to file at the courthouse.

From a legal standpoint, there are no implications that apply specifically to you (and not to others). From a religious point of view (and church), there will be some implications however.
