The divorce rates are high in the United States. Fifty percent of first marriages end in divorce, and 65% of second marriages end in divorce.
Divorce has personally affected me. My parents were divorced before I even remember them being married, when I was just a baby.
And in retrospect one of the saddest events in my life was when I was divorced. I believe marriage is intended to last “til death do us part” and regret the end of my marriage. I have expressed an interest in reconciling with my ex-husband but he is not interested in doing that. As a result, I have determined to spend my life without remarrying, because according to biblical teaching, that would be like adultery.
Mathew 19:9 says “And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery.”
The reasons for my divorce were not adultery, so there was no good reason for the divorce as I understand the Bible. Friends have tried to tell me that God understands things like divorce, and I believe He does, but I still have to try to live as close as I can to the teachings I believe as they are presented in the Bible.
And since I am not going to remarry, I also do not date, as what would be the point of dating? What would it be leading up to? I would simply be leading the man on. Many friends do not understand that and try to get me together with a “friend of a friend” but I have to be firm.
Of course, I believe if either myself or my ex-husband were to die, it would be alright for the other to date and remarry at that point. Not that my ex-husband shares my views, but he is responsible for his own life.
