Does a Christian woman have a biblical right to divorce her emotionally abusive husband?


Is emotional abuse a valid reason for a person to get a divorce? Or should the spouse believe for a supernatural transformation?

    This is mature Christianity, if we can so it; I'd like to read your book. Still, I can't believe an infant responsible if parents physically abuse & kill him/her. One philosophy says targets learn a lesson, but what did the dead 1-month old lear

    David, Kudos! you hit something, whether original or not. IF one can substantiate a true change and have the force, will or ?? to carry it through.. however some are trapped in abusive relationships from inner beliefs, fears and low esteem.

    I agree. In practice, we found those who abuse others having too difficult a time stopping, even with intervention, incarceration, or treatment. For myself, one red flag & I drop the acquaintance, block email, black phone #, etc.

    Agreed! The Scripture says "WHAT GOD HAS JOINED TOGETHER..." Does anyone think that God joined anyone abusive together? Does He makes mistakes?

    The percentage of wives abusing husbands are smaller than that of the abuse by the husbands, thus being totally worth focusing on. My suggestion is if you want to see a question about wives abusing husbands then ye should create one! Just saying....

    Calico,

    you will hear the voice of conscience ceaselessly, day n night if you truly listen. Pray for the gift of hearing and act accordingly. Books, no matter how inspirational, are about people's lives. You are a veryspecial book . Love yourself.

    I understand that view, however I do not agree. The christian faith does not state anywhere to remain in an unHoly marriage, family or association of any kind.

    This is true in every Bible translation I have read, but I still can't believe God wants us to suffer & die as many do in abuse -- I suppose the abused are to change abusers with a kind example, but , God forgive me, I'd leave.

    I got here late but this is the true and Biblical answer here. Also one over looked part is the vow, people make a vow individually to God to remain married to their spouse until death do you part. And God takes vows Very seriously.

    actually, the christian faith does not encourage misery. the faith is based on a loving, caring, forgiving God. nowhere does it state to remain in a marriage that has turned into anything unGodly.

    How does any of this help her if he's just a cruel heartless man? A man that is emotionally abusive won't wake up and be nice. You are talking her into denying her own heart to have love for a man that hurts her? Because the bible tells us so?

    Bible says that God hates divorce and a woman can't divorce her husband for abuse on biblical views, the only way is if he cheated then she can divorce him without a sin. I know it is hard for those woman out there that get abused everyday. ):

    This is ridiculous! A husband that is verbally abusing his wife will not give his cooperation on working on the marriage and do all the things you say. Ask me, I know from experience.

    The bible also says homosexuals should be put to death and then in another verse they should be outcasted. God himself doesn't know what he wants if you really pay attention to what you are reading.
