Christian dating a divorcee
Laws vary as to the waiting period before a divorce is effective. However, issues of division of property are typically determined by the law of the jurisdiction in which the property is located.
Though divorce laws vary between jurisdictions, there are two basic approaches to divorce: fault based and no-fault based.Divorce should not be confused with annulment, which declares the marriage null and void; with legal separation or de jure separation (a legal process by which a married couple may formalize a de facto separation while remaining legally married) or with de facto separation (a process where the spouses informally stop cohabiting).Reasons for divorce vary, from sexual incompatibility or lack of independence for one or both spouses to a personality clash.If you are considering a divorce, you are in a difficult place.The church discourages divorce for almost every reason.Keep in mind that God divorced Israel for her unfaithfulness.Remember that you don’t really know what the person is going through.This results in guilt and the decision to stay in some marriages that are destructive and toxic.On the other hand, divorce shouldn’t be an easy option for any reason at all.On top of that you have to consider your children, your finances, your future,and the divorce proceedings while you are figuring out how to be a single person once again. If you are ministering to people in difficult marriages or those going through divorce, you need tools to help them and insight into the things Christians do that inadvertantly hurt rather than heal.One of these is to be judgmental of people going through divorce.
