Yeah if you find a weakling who would wants to put up with that type stuff. Someone who is so insecure and needy(for a woman/man)Yes. You can stay married. I don't think happily but you can stay married.Suckers are born every minute of every day.
If you have a nice job with a very good salary, nice house,car and so on. Yes.That would increase your chances of staying married. Maybe.But on the other hand. Why get married? If you know you have these type problems, be kind. Don't mess up someone else's life with this. Get some help and get better,if possible. Then you will have more to offer someone.

I'm not judging but the person who doesn't know what he likes and jumps from one person to another would likely make the marriage unstable..for marriage to last-it requires faithfulness and commitment.same with the person who lives in anger-like a termite does with a wooden house-this will melt away the love for each other.and thus destroy marriage

I question things such as this because most of these are psychological disorders. It seems as though self control and hope are not present in those who are diagnosed with these kind of illness'. Or of coarse it can be caused by evil spirits. Just my opinion, not trying to say I'm right.
---willa5568 on 5/15/11

well i was diagnosed as bi polar and severe depression and was told I would have to be on medication my whole life....

Wrong, I soon realised the voices were not me and they were trying to kill me.
once i found my identity in Christ accepted that and cast the demons out, i am 100% healed, not even nearly a down day. no more voices, no more shaking, no more suicidal thoughts, no more rampant tangents..

For me i also identified what seems the source of this, the first door opener.( carries on in next post)

I am bi polar and I suffer every day even with medication. I am saved and on my way to heaven and I am not demon possed. I cry out to jesus to help me and sometimes I settle down, sometimes not. I have been married for 10 years. It can work. I have put bible verse all over my home and it helps, all things are possiable thur jesus. I wan't to be healed but it has not happend yet but it will. maybe not hear on earth but in heaven. all mental issue are not due to demon possion. light and dark can not dwell together. I know my family suffers because of this but I say i am sorry and they understand. sometimes we get a few laughs after my roller coster emotions. we laugh about the stupid things I do.

It might require a deliverance first. You do not have to suffer and destroy your marriage. You can be healed from this kind of illness and/or possession.
---Bob on 3/1/08

You are a hurting man. Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? Have you asked Him to forgive you of your sins? God will listen to the sinner's prayer of asking for forgiveness of all your sins. That is step one. The sinner's prayer.
---Raine on 6/13/07

I agree with Annie, I also deal w/people sufferning. Yes a bi-polar person can get, stay married just like anyone else. I wont sugar coat this it will be harder U need a person who understands the illness thru and thru even then it can ba a lot to handle. But all things are possible w/God.
---Jeanne on 11/6/06

Annie: I work in a psychiatric hospital part time and love my patients so much, it pains me to see Christians try to blame everything on demonic possession. They did the same thing back during the Witch trials in Salem. Everyone was a witch.
---Madison1101 on 10/3/06

Yes, Annie. That's why you are here, to extend that hand. A soft answer turns away wrath.
---Raine on 10/3/06

Every work day,as a clinician, I work with people with various mental and emotional problems..including being bi-polar. These are people with more than enough problems that along with medication and therapy, they need love, compassion, and understanding...and lots of prayers. Should be not extend a hand in love rather than screaming they are demonic possessed?
---Annie on 10/3/06

Yes John, it would have worked out, not because of my faith but because of my late wife's.
You are too quick to blame mental problems.
---Alan8869_of_UK on 10/3/06

Annie, please don;t leave. Although there are posts that don't exhibit love there are so many that do. There will always be varied opinions, but many post the word in good context, seeking God's word to be expressed rather then opinion.

John: IN the USA, there is nobody who lives their life on welfare. There is a five year limit to it. So, therefore, you can't know anyone who lives their life on assistance, unless you live in another country.
---Madison1101 on 10/2/06

Allan8869. I'm glad everything worked out for you. I'm not refering to just ordinary depression. I was talking about people that live their life with mental illness and who live their life on assistance. I know some who are married right now too. But I don't know any who have stayed married for any good length of time. It's too much for the spouse to handle. If you would have stayed in your condition do you think everything would still be OK?

Annie, don't let your feelings be hurt. Don't let the enemy rob you of your testimony. "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force." Matt 11:12
---Raine on 10/2/06

Well, John you must live in a strange place. I myself suffered the torment of (job-induced) depression for several years, and my marriage lasted very well. I know many couples on some form of social benefit, and others who have been through addiction to alcohol & gambling and other mental illness.
---Alan8869_of_UK on 10/2/06

Lunacy and demonic activity go together in the BIble. These demons, along with fear, anger, and resentment cause many chemical imbalances. In the 20 years of my ministering here in one church in the poor end of the city I have never seen a marriage last if there was mental disorders. Nor have I seen a marriage last were the people were on social assistance. But I have seen people delivered from these demons and live a fruitful happy life without medication.
---john on 10/2/06

It makes me very sad to read some of the responses as they do not reflect love, care and concern for our fellow person. Do some of you really believe that any imperfection of the mind and body are demonic related? Guess it's about time for me to leave this site.

JohnT: I agree. That is why I mentioned a believer could be influenced by demons, just not possessed. The lies of the enemy are so insidious. That is why I like cognitive therapy, because it gets to the core beliefs and helps the patient dispute those beliefs with Truths.
---Madison1101 on 10/2/06

Herb/Madison It is not either/or, but both/and.
Yes, depression is often managed by SSRIs or SSNRIs; they help relieve symptoms, but they are not cures.

In my personal experienced (bi-polar dtr, & chronic depressed), and observing mental illness as a Case Manager, there are often lies of the Enemy (coming from others) hammering people, depressing brain functions, exacerbating the situation.
When one has healthy ego, & healing from Jesus, then cures come.

Thus, both are intertwined
---JohnT on 10/2/06

I agree with Rebecca. If bi-polar patient stays on their medication and seeks professional therapy on an ongoing basis, they should be able to live as normally as possible.
---Madison1101 on 10/1/06

I believe with the right help and if this person stays on their medication. I believe they can live a normal (as can be) life. My sister-n-law is bi-polar, we know when she doesn't take her medication. It shows. She is married and have been with the same man for 9 years.

"You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world."
1 John 4:4
---Madison1101 on 10/1/06

Madison, give me one good reason why a Christian can not be demon possessed. You say it is because the Holy Spirit and the demon cannot be in the same space? You must remember, our soul is saved and sealed to the day of redemption, not the body or the brain. Is it not possible for a demon to cause a chemical imbalance? If one becomes a Christian and seeks to speak in tongues and does so by demonic power, is he then not possessed?
---Rev_Herb on 10/1/06

Herb: Bi-polar disorder is a brain chemistry issue, not a demon possession issue. Besides, believers can't be demon possessed. Influenced, yes. Possessed, NO.
---Madison1101 on 9/30/06

Have you concidered this condition to be demonic? I knew a woman who clamed to be a Christian with this problem, yet she would cut herself and harm here body. Many thing she did looked demonic to me.

Phil the Elder, Actually you're wrong. There may be responses that would be helpful to Mitch. Example, yours... to seek qualified professional help. And christina's, that nothing is too hard for God. Mitch, Bottom line, you cannot handle this alone (if you or your spouse). Ask God for His wisdom for the circumstance. We'll be praying.
---daphn8897 on 9/29/06

Oke, I think you missed his other blog, Help Save My Family.
---Raine on 9/29/06

I agree with Phil. CN is not a place for mental health advice. Mitch should be discussing this with his mental health provider.
---Madison1101 on 9/29/06

I made an assumption myself when I first read this, and that was to think the bipolar person was Mitchs spouse. Whatever the case may be, Nothing is impossible with God, this is a very difficult situation from mans standpoint, with little to no hope in the natural, remember our faith is not in what is seen but unseen. we are not of this world and our God is able. This is EASY for Him! Whatever God does is to His glory. Amen?

Bipolar is a euphonium for a number of clinical mental melodies which my have every thing or nothing to do with unfaithfulness. Unless the specific diagnosis is provided, which I don't recommend on ChristiaNet or any other forum of this nature. You need to contact a mental health professional and discuss any problems and questions with someone who is qualified to give you definitive information. Any answers people provide in the forum to this question are basically unqualified and worthless.

**God will listen to the sinner's prayer of asking for forgiveness of all your sins. That is step one. The sinner's prayer.**
Please give book, chapter, and verse for this.
---Jack on 9/29/06

2. Now Mitch let me tell you something, there isnothing too difficult for God and there are things that demons do to men which they cannot nreak on their own until they forcefully break it by the power of God. He whom God sets free cannot be bipolar, but he is sure to have a successful marital and otherwise relationship, no matter what anybody had said.
---Okebaram on 9/28/06

Raine, you were too fast in assuming things here. he didn't even say he was this bi-polar person. Then the way you put the suggestion to ask for forgiveness may, though suggest that the man is repulsive in God's sigth because he is bipolar or has had anger or unfaithfulness problems. Con't...
