    I understood the word to say only sexual immorality can be grounds for divorce.
    And that believers cannot leave unbelievers because they do not know if they can be saved.
    So unbelievers can come and go as they like. If you marry a sinful unrepentant man you cant go until theres evidence of sexual immorality.

    And of course theres a guy in the bible that hears this and says "so.... if thats true its better not to marry." Ha.. men.

    The Great Schism,. truthfully and not trying to step on any toes but Catholicism is full of too many man made trappings there is no pope in the Bible there are several verses that argue against a pope like individual, lose your salvation? Nope. And the whole confession thing as far as to priest isn't as God intended either. I dont need a go between to confess. I go straight to God. I could add more , but again I really don't want to step on Catholic toes.
    The Pharisee, Sadducees and others knew the Bible cover to cover. They knew the law and yet still didn't truly understand. It took Jesus to explain it , and so conflicted with what they believed they had him killed , at least that is part of it they could not stand the fact Jesus made them all look bad and under mined their power structure.

    That's what many other miss including some pastors miss and yes I have talked to many during my walk. You would be amazed as to how many give conflicting views.

    But the true God fearing bible believing ones get it.

    There is no debate it's all right there in the Bible. There is no MANS interpretation read the word , but before you read it ask God for understanding of his word he will give it to you if you come to him with a pure heart and open mind.
    You won't need an interpretation or a pastor to explain it.
    If you go into the word God will explain it. Our God still talks to his children but most don't listen. I never read the Bible like it's just a collection of good stories. What better way then straight to the one who wrote it?

    Why even go there with all of that, when you are fully aware that Christians of various denominations are reading your words? Granted, I love to mess with people of different denominations, but only in jest, being that all are Christians. I certainly oppose many things, and staunchly, but I don't attempt to cause additional schisms; plenty of those already exist. And why would I be "amazed", being that I have already done what I have double dog dared you to do? I have been of the same denomination, baptized ever since I was a fairly young child, but such does not keep me from talking to Catholic Priests and leaders of other denominations.

    Heck, one of my pervert friends in Florida, a Yankee Catholic fallen away to "non denominational"...:rolleyes: relocated further south to the west coast, and I even contacted the Arch Bishop of an Old Roman Catholic Church, asking him to go bless my friend's new house, which was hilarious, because he didn't want him to do so. The 88 year old priest told me I seemed like a good Baptist, while my friend sounded like a very naughty Catholic, lol. He pegged that right. I even travelled down and attended Mass a few times, surprised that the Arch Bishop was calling out the Pope on something regarding judging. I agreed with the nice Arch Bishop, too, lol.

    Point is, if anyone is having difficulty with marriage or anything else, they should seek counsel from the Church. As for the Bible, of course you go there first for guidance, but for you to imply Church counsel is unnecessary is a bunch of crapola, from my perspective, because it often is necessary concerning grievances with others and more. The Bible has passages about that, as you well know. I triple dog dare you! :D

    That's my thought for now, I wouldn't wish this on anyone unless there was a real reason.

    Im of no use. Never been married. Been with the same woman for 12 years now. We arent married, have 2 wonderful kids together.

    But i will say this...if you arent happy, or she isnt happy, part ways. No use in being miserable, regardless of time together.

    This is an interesting Thread.
    Gone off the rails occasionally to preach a while.
    Bottom line folks.
    The wimmen ALL want to know "What can you do for me?"
    Men want one thing....
    "Boy, you sure do smell good.."
    You don't agree with this, you a lyin to yerself.
    Been here a long time, seen a lot of wimmen.
    No further comments, go fight it out any way you want to.

    Serious question: What's the point in marriage?

    Here goes my "male chauvinistic" rant but it's the truth. Judge me all you want.

    There are philosophies that state, love is nothing more than being comfortable. While not explicitly stating it, women want someone to take care of them; it's in their genetics. My experience has been, there is no reciprocation to the caring, after marriage. Just like it's in a man's genetics to pass on his genes. Deep down it's literally nothing more than that. Marriage just doesn't align with those principles.

    A woman finds someone that can better provide financially or emotionally; it's usually game over. A man can find someone better in the sack and cooks; it's usually game over. Just even the thought of these two principles ends marriages. A woman thinks she isn't being supported or a man thinks he can chase again.

    The only way that marriage will ever work is both must have a deep religious faith.
