Husband Left Months Ago

My husband left 4 months ago. I have not seen him since. I have been faithful to him but I recently found out that he is in a relationship. Do I actually have to see this to prove adultery? Can I divorce without carrying guilt?

Real Southerners know not to say "you is" or "you was."

Or even "yous", that last is pure Yankee.

\\Cluny...Where I come from the word adultery has only "3" syllables. Of course, you all is also only one word (y'all). When visiting my relatives, my husband asked me just what did "yonder" mean.\\

I'm from the South, too.

And adultery was always written with the E, even if it was elided.

BTW--only a real Southerner knows when to say "all y'all".

Can you not consult those in your church in regard to this problem?

In one of my older churches, they sent a coupe of elders out to investigate the charge that a man was in a relationship with another woman.

Upon finding the man was living with another woman they resolved that she could file for divorce on a scriptural basis.

Sounds like has already "put you away". You should feel no guilt in the matter. God will send you someone worthy of your love.

If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck chances are its a duck. If your husband left 4 months ago, has not contacted you and is in another relationship you can probably bet something is very wrong. And assuming the worse case senario would not be out of order. I'd give it a total of 6 months and try and find a way to let him know you are going to file for divorce if this behavior continues and unless he contacts you and explains himself immediately. Why would you be the one carrying the guilt...he is the one who has abandoned his marriage and has sinned. The guilt rests on his head. However make sure you are continually in prayer about this and seek GOD for guidance and direction before you act too hastily.

\\Yes you need to file for abandonment which biblically is acceptable too besides adultry. If you know he is with another woman for a fact even if adultry is not commited he is still in the wrong.\\

Give BCV where it says that abandonment is Biblical grounds for divorce.

And don't forget, the word is spelled "adultery". It's a 4 syllable word, not merely 3.

And how did you find out he is in a "relationship"?

Is this a trustworthy source?

And how do you know they are sexually involved?

You may have legal grounds for a divorce for abandonment.

But as with so many other stories, I suspect there is another side to this story.

Make an appointment wit an attorney as soon a possible and if you have having financial difficulties see a state social worker as well.
