We Must Help the Oppressed – Even in Marriage

“Did he abandon you or commit adultery? Did he hurt you physically? If not, you must stay with your spouse no matter what, according to God’s Word.” These are the soul-crushing comments often heard by Christians suffering in horrible marriage situations. But are they accurate? Have God’s people always thought like this? Do we dare give Christians the freedom to decide when they have had enough in a horrible marriage? Are there really only two exceptions to divorce in the Bible: adultery and abandonment?”
