Q. Thank you for your faithful work at gracethrufaith.com. I have a simple question concerning divorce and re-marriage. My wife and I are ending our 25 year relationship. All of our children are grown and out on their own. There was no un-faithfulness, as far as I know, but we have simply never been compatible in the least and just never seemed to mature together as a couple. Neither one of us wants to continue in the marriage. What are Gods instructions concerning re-marriage under these circumstances?
Q. Much, much praise for your invaluable website.
What are your thoughts on sperm donors? If a woman’s husband is infertile, could she be inseminated with a donor’s sperm? I’m thinking that it’s not necessarily sinful because the act of sex is not actually involved…also, what about an unmarried woman who decides she wants to have a child on her own and gets inseminated? It’s the sperm of someone she’s not married to, but sex isn’t involved. Continue reading…
My ex-husband and I were never remarried. We are considering getting back together. Is it a sin to have sex before remarrying? Are we still married in God’s eyes?
I was married to a man who looked at pornographic movies, and magazines and was always lusting after other women. After many years of misery with this man, I divorced him. Was this situation adultery on his part?
I was on a Christian forum seeking help on how I could help my (unbelieving) husband understand and was told not to worry about it because since I’m a believer, my husband and household are covered. This doesn’t settle well with me. I was like no way until I was referred to 1 Cor 7:13-16. Can you explain this scripture to me?
In response to ‘ a divorce question’ I have always believed that God looks unfavorably on the breaking of covenants. At what point do we stop praying and waiting for healing to take place, when God’s own example shows him continually waiting for the return of his beloved people?
My sister-in-law has told me that she’s in love with another man, other than her husband. She still claims to be a Christian and does not feel that it is wrong to meet with the other man and have a relationship with him. I have prayed for her and I know in my heart this is not right. What should I do?
If marital unfaithfulness and/or marriage to an unbeliever are the only biblically acceptable reasons for divorce, then can I ever remarry?
I have been divorced for 7 years, and was separated for 2 years while the divorce was in process. I tried to prevent, delay, avoid the divorce that my wife initiated. Mark 10: 5-9 and 1 Corinthians 7: 15 seem to offer opposite teaching. I loved my wife and never wanted the divorce. I feel bound by my promise to love et al in sickness and in health, what God has joined together let no man put asunder. Please share your thoughts on my situation. Most people tell me to move on, but I don’t really feel that I have that option, Biblically or ethically.
I was wondering why it seems that men in particular seem to have a problem with lust and sexual sin. I know women deal with this too but it seems mainly to be a male problem. Is it the way we were made?
