Mainline Protestants and Divorce

Here’s a lengthy analysis from Robert Ingersoll in 1989, “Is Divorce Wrong?”

Here’s the statement from the United Methodist Book of Discipline about divorce:

Where marriage partners, even after thoughtful consideration and counsel, are estranged beyond reconciliation, we recognize divorce as regrettable but recognize the right of divorced persons to remarry. We express our deep concern for the care and nurture of the children of divorced and/or remarried persons. We encourage that either or both of the divorced parents be considered for custody of the minor children of the marriage. We encourage an active, accepting, and enabling commitment of the church and our society to minister to the members of divorced and remarried families.

There’s a complete Christian worship service about divorce here, if you’d like to look it over.
