Section One is intended to study the doctrines behind that looming question: Is it biblically acceptable to remain in a "remarried" state?
Among those who have raised this question are surely those who are just academically curious.
Then, come next spring, your beautiful, spic-and-span garage has somehow de-evolved once again into something that looks suspiciously like a landfill. When the couple […]Aside from your home, it is likely that the retirement accounts you and your husband hold make up a large portion of your shared assets.
Then return here for a more in depth discussion of whether it is proper to remain married to a second spouse.
Preamble This article will be split into two distinct sections.
The Vatican City is an ecclesiastical state, which has no procedure for divorce.
Countries that have relatively recently legalized divorce are Italy (1970), Portugal (1975), Brazil (1977), Spain (1981), Argentina (1987), Where it is seen as a contract, the refusal or inability of one spouse to perform the obligations stipulated in the contract may constitute a ground for divorce for the other spouse.
Divorce laws vary considerably around the world, but in most countries divorce requires the sanction of a court or other authority in a legal process, which may involve issues of alimony (spousal support), child custody, child visitation / access, parenting time, child support, distribution of property, and division of debt.
In most countries, monogamy is required by law, so divorce allows each former partner to marry another person; where polygyny is legal but polyandry is not, divorce allows the woman to marry a new husband.In contrast, in some countries (such as Sweden, divorce is purely no fault.Many jurisdictions offer both the option of a no fault divorce as well as an at fault divorce.Also asking such questions are those Christians who may have been remarried and have come to understand that in most cases Jesus called the act of getting remarried the "sin of adultery," and now these Christians would like to know what to do to adequately repent and return to full favor with God.Section One is dedicated to providing a sound doctrinal answer to that question.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).
