5 - Always single, divorced or widowed?
That's a simple question, easy answer...and it can feel loaded. We've established that "single" is a requirement, not we get to the "why"? (For an idea of how I feel about the issue, read Jay Adams' "Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage in the Bible" - it's all about forgiveness and restoration)
I am a widow. I was married for 23 years and following that was in a relationship for nearly 8 years.
6 - how have you changed and what have you learned in that “single, divorced, widowed” process?
I've learned that there are many reasons to be single. I've learned through much study that divorce is not a "deal breaker" and I will not attend any church that believes that it is.
