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?

    the question was about a Christian woman, so the mormon cult is not applicable

    She can separate but not divorce for this reason in new testament

    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.

    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.

    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....

    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.

    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?
