It can depend on the circumstances. There are people who have stayed married to their homosexual partners because they are very much in love and have stability and they sometimes have different sexual partners.
If this is not the case, then I would consider divorce. If neither partners are sexually attracted to each other and are not in a caring, loving relationship, then it might be the best thing to do.
Regarding the Christian aspect of the Question, I would say that it should not really affect the decision. Happiness is much more important.
When something is hidden that is so fundamental to marriage relationship, there is in fact, no real marriage in the first place. Only when both partners are totally honest and both fully aware can there be a true consent to marry.
Although very true, it is unfortunately not the case in all marriages. Not everyone divulges all their secrets because they are getting married every marriage is real according to the law if done correctly.
Whether one is a Christian or not everyone is entitled to have their own "deal breakers". Each of choose our own friends, lovers, and spouse. You are responsible for your own happiness. If one is unhappy with their choice they have the ability to learn from their mistake and make a better choice in the future.
According to the Bible there are only two permissible reasons for divorce: infidelity and abandonment. Outside of that, we all sin. Standing by one's partner "for better or for worse" is the whole point of marriage.
While I agree with 'better or worse', I would contend that it is not the central point of marriage.
Personally, I'd agree, but in a biblical sense the sticking together part seems to be paramount
In Matthew 19:3-9, Jesus explained to the Pharisees why some divorces were allowed under the Law of Moses and under what circumstances divorces are permissible for Christians. We also see this principle reflected in what Jesus had to say in Matthew 5:32 In 1 Corinthians 7:12-16 the apostle Paul instructs us on a Christian being married to a non Christian.
