1 thought on “Widening the Grounds of Legitimate Divorce”

  1. Thank you for highlighting this issue. When I wrote the Christianity Today article, I struggled greatly with the word

    limit for such an important subject. There wasn’t room to define neglect, so I referred readers to my Divorce &

    Remarriage in the Church (the full text is at http://www.DivorceRemarriage.com)

    The book details the way in which Jesus emphasises that a wronged partner should forgive and forgive and forgive and

    that turning to divorce as a remedy for persistant neglect or abuse is a last resort. I’m sorry that I have caused

    confusion by not making this clear in the article itself. See my response to this and other issues here.
