I am about to apply to an online christian-based univ because I want to get a degree in religious studies and work in an area of ministry, probably counseling. The problem is I want to get a divorce because I found out that my husband of two years had a sexual relationship with a fifteen year old girl when he was thirty, actually he says he fell in love with her and her parents believed him (obivously they were crazy) which is why they did not press charges. I know that the only reason that God allows for divorce is adultery, and he did not do this. His relationship with her started and ended before we met. Also I should add that he does not feel guilty about this, and has tried to make me feel bad for being upset about it. I am worried that if I leave him this will destroy my chances of getting hired by a church or ministry when I graduate. Should I stay with him so that I will be able to work for God?Answer Question

for better or for worst... this happened before you, so why punish him for a past mistake?? And who is to say that it was a mistake?? Just b/c you and I dont understand something doesnt make it wrong. Love is blind and it comes in all shapes and sizes, and ages. I dont think that child molestors or perverts should be excused or anything, but you never know what is inside someones' heart. Maybe he really cared for her and fell in love b/c of his circumstances. Who knows?? I myself was raped and stalked at the age of 15 by a 30 something-yr-old man (family friend) who thought he was in love with me. He was sick!!! But to him it was real. Find out why it was real for your hubby. Look past it and then move forward. No one is perfect and you cant be the first w/o sin to cast a stone.
