    Let me start by saying that God is always forgiving and understanding. We don't give God enough credit for forgiveness. God made us and therefore he understands us....more than we think he does. Most times, we are tougher on ourselves than God is on us. Don't judge yourself so harshly.
    Some times we make mistakes...its human, and mistakes can be made in any part of our lives including the choice we make for a life partner.
    God has designated a soul mate for each of us...and if we have made the mistake of choosing the wrong life partner then we will not be truly happy. God wants us to be happy, but being happy is contingent on us listening to the still small voice inside of our heads and when we ignore it things don't work out so well.
    But God does forgive us our trespasses and he allows second marriages...absolutely, because it means you are happy and yoyu have love. God is love.

    God does not blame, but patiently tries again to show the perfect way, the loving way. All of creation pushes forth. We are ever becoming. Identity ever remains! EVER GROWING! Personally I do believe God is LOVE, LIGHT, LIFE, GOOD and so many names to name but it all centers around perfect balance,  LOVE! GOD is willing and able to forgive us even before we make a choice, any choice. God knows we are not perfect so yes, GOD has always been forgiving and always will be. PERFECTION is GOD'S JOB not ours. We're learners ever learning from the school of life and with that said as long as we're alive, we're on some level of a grade and until we die we're still in the school of life, destined to learn more and have to most importantly learn from our mistakes and have more and more successful stories to share with others so hopefully they're do better than what we did.

    When asking yourself whether God will forgive you of something, or allow you to do something, I sometimes think we try to over analyze the answer.  God has made everything simple.  We are the ones that complicate issues.

    If you are a true Christian, you believe HE has provided us with the only way or path to HIM.  A very simple path.  Measurements of good deeds, knowledge of HIS word, living a clean life, and other meaningless self-worth attributes do not lead us to HIM.  Jesus Christ is the path.....very simple.  It's an 'amazing grace' that is simply accepted.

    And as Christians, God has asked us to live our lives by 10 simple rules.  These commandments were not created to be a religous martial law.  They are a guide in following Christ & modeling ones life for future Christians to witness.  We tend to want to break down each individual rule & create justifiable circumstances.  We sometimes become fixated on a rule & over attach it to parts of our lives that may need expanding.  In either case, it's a path of choice.  But always remember, in your path, mistakes will be made.  Sin will happen.  Grace & forgiveness overcomes.

    Does God forgive?....ofcourse HE does.  Does God allow?....ofcourse HE does.  No ones path (except for one) on this earth is or has been straight & narrow.  As long as your path is headed in the right direction, go for it!

    I believe that opposition to divorce /remarriage is not a concern of God. The answer to your question is within you and never was or will be based on the teachings of any mortal church leader. God will judge you based on what is in your soul. Divorce/remarriage is a personal decision. When you feel your decision has been made after honest self-examination of your motives your soul will reflect your honesty to yourself in God's eyes.

    The greatest gift given to mankind was freedom of choice. As long as your choices are not meant to hurt others then go for it make yourself happy. Marriage is suppose to be til death do you part, but only if you are in a happy marriage. Theres nothing wrong with seeking happyness, again.

    Lady Summerset ; Yes you can have a second marriage for sure. but, learning from the broken one & don't make the same mistake twice...! what i mean is just sit alone & do a analysis on what went wrong in your first marriage. may be it's not your fault. but think of major situations you faced & just see if you react in a different way in those situations, what might me the outcome. it will be the same or will it improve?

    most of us will not remember when you see a closed door, there will be another one open for you. life believes in second chances. why can't you?

    GOOD LUCK to You
