    Christians - thoughts? holes in this? Agree? Dissagree?

    I recall as a child in the 60s, the hierarchy of the church social pecking order snubbed their noses at divorcee's. I also recall some such notion that once divorced, one could never marry again -- the "there's no such thing as divorce in God's eyes" rule -- or some such notion.

    Quite frankly, it's such nonsense as the above that has led me away from organized religion.

    Two people who are incompatible as mates for life should not be forced to suffer one another. And it takes TWO. Why should a person suffer the rest of his/her life because they fell out of favor with the other? Punishing the victim is nonsensical.

    IMO, a loving God would NOT wish for us to suffer the unhappiness of a love-less marriage simply for the purpose of decorum within the community of a church.
