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.
