If I had taken his past seriously and asked some tough questions, we may have not gone out again after the first date.
Even though I knew breaking-up was the right decision, it’s always hard to say good-bye to someone you spend time getting to know.
He needs to seek healing for himself, not just to satisfy the wishes of a new girlfriend.
Even though I have never been through a divorce, I imagine it is difficult to identify one clear reason for it. Depending on your interpretation of scripture, your personal experiences with divorce, and your convictions, you may not agree with the reasons.
I imagine this is evidence of our societal apathy towards the marriage covenant.If it’s our desire to treat marriage as a covenant between two people that represents Jesus’ covenant with the Church, then we must respect marriage.That means that until a legal divorce has taken place, the person is still married, even if their separation from their spouse goes on for months or years.Asking someone the reasons for their divorce may seem brash, but I would argue that it is wise to ask it soon after meeting someone new. A potential partner should offer this information willingly.Soon after the incident at the singles’ retreat my boyfriend and I broke up.
