    Separating but staying married to an abuser is not safe. He can legally take your children anywhere he wants without your permission, he can control your finances and ruin your credit and obtain information about you that you might not want him to have. It’s a nice thought but a bad idea. I think most people who said divorce is not an option would change their minds pretty quick when faced with certain situations. Its easy to judge and its easy to think nothing will happen to you but you just never know

    @UpstateNYPrincessBride: Also direct quotes from the bible…

    “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death.”

    “For six days all work is to be done but the seventh day shall be your holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the lord. Whoever does any work on this day must be put to death.”

    “If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property.”

    There are dozens more but reading them is kind of infuriating.

    @UpstateNYPrincessBride: I know you like to tell me to not participate in discussions, but that’s why I participate on a forum. If you don’t like my replies to your intentionally controversial posts, then you can feel free to ignore me.

    I am all for divorce.  I hope that I never have to go through it, because it is sometimes a very painful process, but I am so so grateful that it exists as an option for all of us – even those who don’t “believe” in it.

    @UpstateNYPrincessBride: So you think that someone who was married once, was abused and divorced, married again, but he cheated so they divorced, and is now married again isn’t taking their vows seriously? Sure you’re entitled to your opinion, but that doesn’t mean you have to go around insulting people. Most insults are completely opinion but that doesn’t mean it’s okay to say them. Would you tell someone on these boards that you think they’re hideously ugly? Probably not, because that would just be rude. Having an opinion is not an excuse to be rude.

    @UpstateNYPrincessBride: Also, I’m Christian but that doesn’t mean that everyone believes what the Bible says. You can believe it for yourself but the Bible also teaches about love and putting people down for their beliefs and lifestyles is not Christ-like at all.

    @UpstateCait: Aren’t those Old Testament? So that doesn’t really apply anyway.

    The people who get married 3,4,5 times I am not convinced that they understand or even care about the vows that their taking.  They have proven that by going against those vows for the 3rd, 4th time.

    Um, that looks like criticizing the person to me. Did you even read my post? You can have an opinion but that doesn’t mean it’s acceptable to share it if it’s insulting others.

    @UpstateCait: Not to thread jack but there is a WHOLE different discussion on how the new covenant law surpassses the old law (which is what you are quoting). ((Editted for my irritation))

    @UpstateNYPrincessBride: What’s the difference between the person and the situation? The person is usually part of the situation. Explain how it’s any different?

    @UpstateNYPrincessBride: No, you didn’t make the rules.  Which means you are not qualified to be so judgemental.  I think you’ll find life to be a lot more peaceful if you don’t judge others.
