Christianity condemns the idea of divorce. It is contrary to the sacred vow between a man and a woman. Christ teaches of this sacred nature of marriage and discourages those who look upon married people with even impurity in the heart.
With these strong condemnations against divorce, the Church has looked to protect the sanctity of marriage but in a broken world divorce still happens. In some Christian communities, re-marriage is even permitted. So how does one counsel others going through divorce or considering remarriage? How even more so, do counselors help those within Catholic and Orthodox traditions find a place as a divorced person within the community?
The video below reviews Church teachings and difference of opinions within various groups of Christianity and how those who are experiencing divorce need special pastoral care.
