If the man is not a Christian and the woman is, she is doing what is expected of her. This is my opinion only. Yes she can get a divorce if there is no longer any love in her marriage and it sounds that way to me. Will God forgive her. Yes and He already has. She only has to confess that she tried and it didn't work. God already knows everything before after and everthing in the future.

What do you mean "is no longer content?" What is the source of the discontent? Is the husband a christian? If he is not a believer, did his wife become a believer during the course of their marriage or before? A bit more clarification is needed to your question.

There is one scripture that comes to mind, and it goes like this---If a woman leaves her husband she is to either remain single or go back to Him.[1 Corin. 7-11]----- In the teaching of Jesus, all sexual impurity is sin against God, against self, and against others. In [matt.5-32] [incase of fornication, only acceptable for divorce.]---Mose's law permitted divorce. But from the beginning God did not intend it to be that way. [MATT. 19-8.]

Let him be the one who divorces you, not you divorcing him. If he no longer wants you then let him give you your freedom. Read 1 Cor. 7.

**If he wants out of the marriage, it is he who should leave the matrimonial home.**

Are you saying that someone should leave his OWN home and his OWN bed for elsewhere?

He has no right to tell her to leave.
If he wants out of the marriage, it is he who should leave the matrimonial home.

marriage is not a fairytale, and what i have learnt is that it is hard work. i think that in situations like these that's when our love for a spouse and faith is tested and we need to stand upon the word and trust, believe and have faith in our lord Jesus.(malachi 2:16) talks about how God hates divorce. i would keep praying and looking for guidance from God and my church pastor. i really don't think its ok to divorce.

1 Cor7:15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.

Is your husband a believer or not?

1 Corinth 7:13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. 15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.

NO. If he wants out, let him do the leaving.
What a cop out. Tell her to dig her heels in, pray and fast that this man going through mid-life crisis will come to his senses. Don't budge, no way. Fight for the marriage.
