My husband and I recently separated and I am having a really hard time excepting that there's nothing more for me to do.. It's been a physically abusive and unfaithful 5 years with him.. I've finally realized that change is not realistic.. We have two small children together.. I just want to feel like I'm doing the right thing..

I find it acceptable in situations where abuse (in any form) and adultery are present.  Everything else can be fixed.  I feel that God wouldn't want you or your children to be in harm's way.

I have my opinion on divorce but obviously opinions aren't Bible verses. If you're looking for what it says in the Bible concerning divorce, you're within your rights hun. Cheating is a deal breaker.

Matthew 19:9 And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery.”

I think in situations of abuse and infidelity it is perfectly acceptable. After all isn't it stated in the Bible that a man should honor his wife? That is not honoring my friend..

I am obviously not a strict Christian woman, but I do have a certain amount of faith in God and his word, so this is on opinion from both ends of the spectrum I suppose!

It sucks...but I'm not against it. Really depends on the situation. Then again, I'm not THAT religious either.

This is pretty much exactly what I was going to say.

Well, for your sake I'm hoping you don't eat shellfish or wear blended fabrics... and if you go to chruch, please tell me you don't speak in the building.  Do you also tell men when you're on your period so they don't have to speak to you?  The bible is stupid.

If Christianity told me I had to stay married to someone I hated because he didn't abuse me, or cheat on me, I had to denounce Christianity. I'm divorcing. I don't care what the church or anyone else thinks about it.

if its abusive and unfaithful you are doing the right thing and i think God is ok with that  i cant immagine He approves of unfaithfulness
