Actually, it is. It's been one since ancient Rome.

Like i said in another thing against divorce, i disagree greatly : My mother was having a freaking depression because of her marriage, me and my little sister were having negatives vibes because of it and everyone in my family was generally unhappy because of it. And plus, this is a really old quote. There was also one that says that women should be pretty accesories who are quiet and stuff, you know.

But i respect your opinion, tough :shrug:

All of you agreeing obviously never saw your parents scream and throw things at each other,
I did,
Now I spend most of my time with my mother,
I see my dad at weekends,
But it's better than the screaming,
My mom has married again,
I have a sweet little bro now too,
Now it's back to divorce again,
At this point I hate all of you,
Because you never saw the shit hit the fan,
Between your mother and her man.

First of all, I understand that this is an old piece. And second of all.....Uh....yes it is an option.

Deuteronomy 24:1
When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. 2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife.
(And this isn't the only verse...trust me women are allowed to hand over a certificate of divorce too!)

The bible gives "marital unfaithfulness" as a reason for the divorce. Obviously, G-d hates divorce but knows that 2 sinful beings are going to make mistakes. G-d does not want His children to be unhappy.


Reading some of your replies I see that you've come from a happy, abuse and drug addiction free home. I'm happy for you since that seems to be a rarity now-a-days. However, not everyone has that privilege so posting a piece like this is very offensive. You see, the man that I do believe to be my biological father (not confirmed as of yet) was an abusive man whom my mother divorced in order to save her own life (and perhaps my own as well!) How can you say that divorce is not an option in this case? What about those with drug addiction problems. Or, like my cousin's biological mother...she was neglectful of my cousin nearly killing her. My uncle divorced her to save his daughter's life.

Or myself for instance. I was engaged to a verbally, mentally, and physically abusive man. Are you saying that, once I had married him, I was stuck there for the rest of my life? The G-d I serve would never want one of His children in such a predicament. How dare you say something like this when you have no real world experience of such a relationship!!
i disagree. (late, i know.) my parents are christians but my dad is mentally abusive. This has caused my mom to go into a depression for years. She wants to stay for us (kids) but my dad won't see a counsellor or support my mom. he doesnt think he's doing anything wrong so you say a problem can be solved but what happens when one doesnt want to solve it? my pastor has talked and talked to my dad but he doesnt want to change. my mom cant take it anymore. how would you solve this? its been going on for at least 6 years.

I believe that unless you are being abused brutaly you shouldn't get divorced.

My mom was afraid to divorce my dad for TEN YEARS. Ten years of, cheating on my mom, stealing money and treating her like she was a piece of shit. My dad was too stubborn to work it out with her, and continued to do so. When she finaly divorced, she couldn't be any happier than she is now. She has a stable job, a wonderful boyfriend and two kids she cares for alot. Divorce sometimes is the only option. I think i would rather have my mom dead, than be back with my dad.

Why stay in a marriage if you are unhappy? Why would you torture yourself in such a way?
Shrineheart's avatar
I'm divorcing, my mom's divorced twice, my sister in law divorced twice, along with countless others that I know have...I don't really see how it's not an option...

Ah I am quite sorry for this little story but I have a right to tell my tale.

Divorce truly is an option. If we are talking about The Bible and Christianity, then, yes, I know it does say that in The Bible. I am quite sure, though, that God would NOT like his children to be miserable.

My family was quite miserable before the divorce. My dad was very abusive and cruel to me and my mom. He would hurt her and me and the police would do nothing.

I think divorce WAS the only option then....

I love it!! Brother!! Keep it up. See my work on interfacelift.com we should collaborate! [link]

Uh . . . divorce is totally an option. Obviously you have no idea what you're talking about. Statistics and stories are great and all, but unless you've acctually been in this bad situation, you have no room to talk. And I can honestly say that my family was in complete distress before my parents got a divorce. Now everyone is happier. And as for "if you don't want your husband to commit adultry, then maybe you should please him" is suched a screwed up idea. My mom has six kids and Dad was constantly away on buisness trips. WHen he came back, do you honestly think my mom had the energy to "please him" And if that is really your theory, you're blambing the cheating on the person who was cheated on. I think you're a douche bag
Kitsune1414's avatar
I agree, this is such an idiotic idea. If they commit adultery blame the cheated not the cheater? Really? That's really stupid.

My parents divorced because my dad was to high and drunk to work. Now he barely pays child support, how can this 'artist' say that divorce is wrong? Has he ever been in the same situation? No? Okay then.

I LOVE it when people who have NO IDEA what they're preaching about say it's wrong when they don't even know what it's like. People need to know when to shut up sometimes.

I bet this guy is against gay marriage and women working. Seriously, this is the 21st century people get over yourselves and your out dated ideas...

Sometimes you try to help the person you marry because you love them. But if they don't want to change, they wont. And unfortunately some circumstances do lead to divorce.
YSR1's avatar
They do, but the divorce is not the ideal. If you really love the person, would you give up on him/her?
celestialsunberry's avatar
Yes, but sometimes you wonder, "Why did I marry this person?" But you know you love them and want to be with them in the end forever even though you want to strangle your spouse sometimes.
YSR1's avatar
Yeah, it's so true. I know what you're talking about. I've heard it said. If you're fiance is not your best friend, don't marry him/her.
celestialsunberry's avatar
Well, yea, you should totally marry someone that you get along with. It's important.
YSR1's avatar
Thank you. I really want to. :)

A lot of times, divorce is the only option. When my dad refused to get help with a meth addiction, she got a divorce to keep me safe.

On a personal level, this piece insults me.

There are lots of reasons for divorce. When it comes down to it, lots of people just wont change.

Demeaning divorce, or saying that only people who don't work through their problems get divorce is a silly assumption and invalidates all of the work that single parents do around the world. My mother raised me alone.

So, I'm going to be honest, I take great offense with this piece. My mother worked so hard to raise me to be the person I am today. So, to just say she wasn't willing to work through her marriage's problem not only disregards all her hard work, but gives my father an excuse for being a deadbeat.

Granted, I would have loved to have a complete family, father included, but if the divorce didn't happen, I wouldn't have gotten the joy of knowing my 4 younger siblings.

I'm very sorry to offend you Amanda, but when a wife says: "I want a divorce" usually what she's really saying is: "I want you to change" or "I want you to treat me right." Don't you think?

Not in my mother's case.
