No Fault Divorce Biblical

My husband says he wants a divorce and I am not in agreement as I feel Biblically I have done nothing to warrent this. Can he divorce me anyway as we live in California?

Moderator - Yes, it's called a no fault divorce which is the most common in our society.

Amen, Amy. To force the unbeliever to continue to live with you would destroy any peace in your home. Far better to let him go, and trust in God.

Divorce is hard for a Bible believing Christian. I Cor. 7:13 says "And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her she must not divorce him."
I Corinthians 7:15 says, "But if the unbeliever leaves, let him do so. A believing man or woman is not bound in such circumstances; God has called us to live in peace."

Just W Sadly, if he refuses to go to counselling, it seems he does not want to repair the marriage. And unless he wants to, it would not work.
I am so sad for you. Pray to God for His peace in your heart.

my husband and I were seperated and in order to get back together we agreed on getting counseling but now he refuses to do so.

Just Wondering ... Madison is correct, you need to consult a lawyer, if you want to know whether your husband can force the divorce.
But even if you could stop him divorcing you, what would you gain? Sadly, it would not make your husband love you again.
If he really is a Christian, will he not agree to some counselling to try to save his marriage?

Donna: I know the PA no-fault law. My husband filed for one, and my lawyer told me that I could contest it, but it would be a waste of money, as my husband would still get the divorce after two years.

Just_Wondering: I apologize for being so harsh with my answer. I just hate to see well meaning people, like you, ask for advice legal advice here. We are not qualified to give it. You can get legal questions answered on the internet, that is how I find out a lot of things. Do a Google search.

Just W,
Ask what ever question you need to put your mind at ease, You sound very sincere and do not deserve all this. I do feel your pain it's clear you love your husband. God promised that he would be our refuge in the time of a storm, and when it is all over you will be safe and secure, trust him for your breakthro God Bless you CarlaXXX

If you did not commit adultery/fornication bibically you would not be divorced only on the grounds of the particular law in your country. However he would accept that as a divorce and the law of the land would but in Gods sight you would still be married. But if he married again it would free you to marry since he would be an Adulterer. Also if he commits fornication. However he would not be free in Gods sight to remarry. Although the law would say he can. Are you both christians?

Madison, I filed no fault divorce and my husband wouldn't sign the papers for 2 years. He told my friends he wanted to torment me by not letting me go, and if he saw me with another man, he'd kill me, now he's stalking me. POINT IS THIS: You can contest a Pennsylvania no-fault divorce by not signing the papers like my ex-husband did for 2 years. Just an FYI for when you give advice about this. Luv ya!!

JustWondering: If you don't like the answers you get, why do you ask the question?
---Jack on 7/12/06

Many people ask advice on this website. Perhaps people like me do not have the funds for a lawyer. Be a little sensative. If you don't like my question then why bother to read it.
---Just_Wondering on 7/11/06

Why would you come to a Christian blog for legal advice? We are not lawyers, we are believers who wish to discuss scripture and Christian living. Call a lawyer and get legal advice.

My husband divorced me in Pennsylvania under the no-fault divorce laws. If California has no-fault divorce, you stand little chance of contesting it.
