In general, they observed the Augustinian view that the good of the marriage involves children and faithfulness, but they rejected the. Few men have had a higher view of marriage than Luther. He taught that it "has been instituted by God" and that "marriage by nature is of such a kind that it drives, impels, and forces men to the most inward, highest spiritual state, to faith. In his own preaching on divorce, Luther was quite flexible as to what constitutes just cause.
He cited adultery as the only cause given by Jesus. Through the Mosaic Law, adultery was punishable by death. Therefore, an adulterer "has already been divorced, not by man but by God Himself, and separated not only from his wife but from this very life. Adultery for Luther, however, was not the only possible ground. Desertion of spouse and family, he felt, was equally legitimate. In his interpretation of the teachings of Paul, Luther believed that if a Christian hinders a believing spouse from following Christ, divorce is in order, with remarriage a viable option.
On the other hand, should the Christian divorce the unbeliever for other causes, there must be reconciliation or the maintenance of a celibate state. If a husband and wife could not live together harmoniously, but only in hatred and continual conflict, let them be divorced. Once more, however, reconciliation or celibacy were preferred. Nonetheless, in such cases, if a spouse did not desire reconciliation and the other was unable to remain chaste, the latter should remarry, for "God will not demand the impossible.
Like Luther, Calvin held a high view of marriage, seeing it as "a good and holy ordinance from God. Even children can discern that there is no such thing in marriage. For believers, marriage is an indissoluble bond, and spouses connected by marriage no longer have the freedom to change their mind and go off elsewhere. On the other hand, if an unbeliever wishes to divorce a spouse on account of religion, the believer is no longer under marital obligation. In such a case, "the unbelieving party makes a divorce with God rather than with her partner.
Like Luther, Calvin saw adultery as the one cause for divorce in Jesus' teachings. As far as he was concerned, the OT penalty for adultery should be enforced, making divorce unnecessary, but "the wicked forbearance of magistrates makes it necessary for husbands to put away unchaste wives, because adulterers are not punished. Although Calvin was very conservative in his theological view of divorce, like Luther his practice was more liberal. His "Ecclesiastical Ordinances," adopted by the Little and Large Councils ofallowed three grounds for divorce and remarriage.
He also provided for annulment where a spouse could not, because of some physical infirmity, perform the conjugal act. In the minds of the Continental Reformers, the insistence on the indissolubility of marriage regardless of circumstances was one of the foremost scandals of Roman Catholicism.
One of the early English reformers, and a martyr to his faith d. His thought shows considerable Lutheran influence. Like the founder of the Reformation, he believed that marriage is ordained by God for purposes of love, companionship, and procreation, and to serve as a bastion against illicit sexual activity.
It could not, however, be considered a sacrament in the proper sense of the word, for it did not carry with it a promise. Should it be considered such because it is a similitude of the union between Christ and his church, then all other NT similitudes would have to be considered sacraments. While not disallowing divorce when it accorded with scriptural grounds, Tyndale decided that the King's marriage to Catherine had been in full agreement with the Bible; he could find no good reason why the church should not grant Henry a dissolution.
For Tyndale, divorce was possible only because of adultery. Because the Mosaic Law stipulated the death of the adulterer, the innocent party was not under bondage to the original marriage.
Desertion was also a just cause in Tyndale's opinion, because he saw it as invariably tied to adultery. Thomas Cranmer, first Archbishop of Canterbury following Henry's break with Rome and martyred by Mary Tudor inplayed a key role in the formulation of Anglican views on divorce and remarriage.
His attitudes reflected an affinity for Roman Catholic theology. He was a major figure in the council of prelates, which wrote The Institution of a Christian Man inand was. Both books were similar in their emphasis that any marriage to which there was an impediment according to the laws of either church or realm must be declared null and it was under this provision that Henry had his marriage to Catherine of Aragon declared nullbut if a marriage was lawfully made according to the ordinance of God, it could not be dissolved during the lives of the spouses.
Cranmer's opinions are further evidenced in a letter in to Osiander, a preacher of Nuremburg and his wife's unclewhere he derided the presence of Philip Melanchthon at the second marriage of the Landgrave of Hesse.
He was particularly dismayed at the idea of remarriage after divorce: "What can possibly be alleged in your excuse when you allow a man after a divorce, while both man and woman are living, to contract a fresh marriage? Martin Bucer, while in the strictest sense a Continental reformer, came to England in at the invitation of Archbishop Cranmer and spent the remainder of his life there. Much of the book was concerned with marriage and divorce.
Bucer emphasized the civil nature of marriage and reminded Edward VI to whom the book was dedicated that a monarch should see that marriages "be made, maintain'd, and not without just cause dissolved. Contrary to Roman Catholic interpretation of Scripture, he held that none of the Church Fathers ever dismissed a person from the church for remarrying after a divorce approved by Imperial law. For Bucer, the proper purpose of marriage was not sexual intercourse, but "the communicating of all duties both divine and humane, each to other with utmost benevolence and affection.
In accordance with his view of the purpose of marriage, Bucer determined that not only. John Knox, the founder of Scottish Presbyterianism, was very much like his mentor, John Calvin, in his stance on divorce. In his First Book of Disciplinehe noted that marriage, once lawfully contracted, could not be terminated unless adultery had occurred.
Like Calvin, he deplored the failure of civil authorities to execute adulterers. The church was to excommunicate such people and set the innocent party free to marry again. Upon the repentance of the guilty party, however, forgiveness was to be granted and, "if they cannot remain continent, About one century after De Regno Christi, Divorce Divine - Vladimir Harkonnen - Silence Milton, one of England's greatest poets and a Puritan officer in Cromwell's Commonwealth government, not only translated Bucer's work, but also wrote two tracts of his own on the subject of divorce and remarriage: Tetrachordon, his major work, and Colasterion, both published in Milton may have been motivated, in part, by his own unhappy marriage inwhich broke up shortly afterward, reunion being effected in According to its subtitle, the former was intended to harmonize the OT passages on marriage and divorce Gen f.
Milton inferred the grounds for divorce from the purposes of marriage as he had discovered them in the Bible. He noted that Genesis teaches that, because it is not good for man to be alone, God made a "help meet for him"AV. Thus, the purpose of marriage is for companionship, mental and social as well as physical. Spouses, believed Milton, should help one another to be more devout, to generate mutual fellowship and love, to procreate, and, lastly, to avoid sexual sin.
In commenting on GenMilton agreed that a man should cleave to his wife-as long as she was what a wife should be. At the same time, he asked. Milton had no problem reconciling his views with the Mosaic Law and Christ's interpretation of it. Jesus had no intention of abrogating Deut ; He simply reproved its abuse. Likewise, Paul, in his First Epistle to the Corinthians, was only imitating what Christ taught, that divorce is not to be hastily done, but that reconciliation should always be the first and foremost desire.
Milton's views were not to go unchallenged. Inthe Westminster Confession of Faith was published. Its section on marriage stated categorically that nothing but adultery and wilful desertion is sufficient reason for dissolving the marriage bond. John Wesley, the father of Methodism, demonstrated a break with the Reformers and a decided preference for the Anglican teaching out of which he came.
He treated divorce and remarriage in the context of polygamy: "All polygamy is clearly forbidden in these words, wherein our Lord expressly declares, that for any woman who has a husband alive, to marry again is adultery. In contrast to Luther and Calvin, Wesley did not allow divorce on the grounds of cruelty. The only ground was adultery, in which case there was no Scripture forbidding the innocent party from remarrying.
The views of church leaders and scholars have been guided by their interpretation of the biblical teachings on marriage and divorce. Not all have interpreted these passages in like manner. Indeed, some have come virtually to opposite conclusions.
Because they were writing largely for men, most of their remarks and illustrations concern women at fault. Generally, however, either directly or by allusion, they agree that what applies to one sex applies equally to the other.
The Ante-Nicene Fathers generally permitted divorce on the ground of adultery. Some even required it. At the same time, remarriage was usually forbidden. Not only did it cut off any chance of marital reconciliation, but many in the church regarded marriage as Album) indissoluble bond which continued unbroken until the death of one spouse.
Thus prior to such an occurrenceremarriage was an adulterous act and the offender was liable to. There was not, however, unanimity. Some, like Origen, allowed remarriage after a divorce on the ground of adultery.
Others e. No matter what a spouse had done, remarriage following divorce was out of the question. Augustine's position became the foundation of the Roman Catholic view of marriage as a sacrament. When contracted between two communicants, marriage is indissoluble. Where only one is a believer, spiritual adultery is involved and a divorce may be permitted along with remarriage, under certain conditions.
This position was challenged during the Renaissance by some of the humanists e. Numerous impediments to marriage were noted, however, whereby marriages might be annulled.
The Protestant Reformation brought a fresh examination of the biblical teachings. The Continental Reformers, while holding a high view of marriage, eschewed its sacramental nature. They permitted remarriage by an innocent party after a divorce because of adultery or desertion. The Anglicans generally held positions close to those of Roman Catholicism.
While scandalized by the notion of marriage as a sacrament, they nonetheless tended to regard remarriage after divorce as adultery although there were those who diverged from that opinion. The dissenting denominations tended to follow the views of the Reformers.
Some, As Long As A Thought, like Milton, were very flexible as to cause, but most followed the Westminster divines in pronounced restraint. Sweet, Goodspeed; New York: Harper and Row, Scribners Sons, LeSaint; ed. Johannes Quasten and Joseph C. Alan Menzies; New York: Chas. Scribner's Sons, Unhappily married couples, so the thinking went, were doing their children a favor by divorcing.
Dish-hurling, name-calling parents were bad for kids, sure, but so were repressed parents who lingered in tepid marriages under the misguided assumption that a mother and father together were always better than either alone.
Divorce was a crisis from which children would quickly bounce back. While The Executioners Are Reloading (Cassette years, this notion hung on more or less unassailed in dinner-party wisdom, psychology textbooks and sitcoms.
Only in the last decade or so has it begun to seem more self-serving than truthful -- and for this dawning recognition we owe a great deal to the work of the psychologist Judith Wallerstein.
She, more than anyone else, has made us face the truth that a divorce can free one or both parents to start a new and more hopeful life and still hurt their children. She has urged parents and policy Divorce Divine - Vladimir Harkonnen - Silence alike to think seriously about the impact of divorce on children, while acknowledging its necessity as an escape route for couples yoked miserably together.
By now, Wallerstein's research has also informed a barrage of antidivorce polemics and ideological defenses of marriage that are far less subtle and humane than her own books.
Waite and Maggie Gallagher, just seem strained. Waite and Gallagher think people ought to get married and stay married, and they catalog, exhaustively, all the statistical reasons: married people live longer and healthier lives, make more money, feel happier and claim to have better and more frequent sex than their single counterparts. But it's hard to know who is supposed to read this book or what purpose it might serve. Most people want to get married, after all.
The right to divorce is deeply ingrained in American culture precisely because so is the ideal of a mutually fulfilling marriage. Wallerstein's goal, on the other hand, is not to condemn divorce.
It's to remind us that it takes a toll on children that adults may not want to acknowledge. To make this case, she draws on a unique storehouse of information. Sinceshe has followed the postdivorce fates of the same 60 families from Marin County, Calif.
In ''Second Chances: Men, Women and Children a Decade After Divorce,'' written in with Sandra Blakeslee, a regular contributor to The New York Times, Wallerstein looked at how the kids were faring 10 and 15 years after their parents split up and was surprised to find that half of them were entering adulthood as ''worried, underachieving, self-deprecating and sometimes angry young men and women.
In ''The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce,'' also written with Blakeslee, Wallerstein and her colleague Julia Lewis check in with 93 of the original children, and profile five of them in detail. Like ''Second Chances,'' the new book offers the narrative satisfactions of a high school reunion or a where-are-they-now documentary. Will angry Larry finally realize that his abusive father was the jerk in the family, not his cowed but kindly mother?
Will ultraresponsible Karen, who took charge of her clingy mother and younger siblings after her parents divorced, ever loosen up enough to fall in love and take a gamble on marriage? As it turns out, only 40 percent of the ''children'' in her study, who now range in age from their late 20's to their early 40's, have ever married.
In the general population, the figures are 81 percent for men in that age range and and 87 percent for women. Since their own parents had not projected the image of a loving and contented relationship, Wallerstein's subjects felt they had no idea what one ought to be like. For them, trying to live in day-to-day harmony with another person was like ''becoming a dancer without ever having seen a dance.
Wallerstein concludes that ''contrary to what we have long thought, the major impact of divorce does not occur during childhood or adolescence. Rather, it rises in adulthood as serious romantic relationships move center stage.
This emphasis on the long-term effect of divorce is the new nugget here. But in some ways, I found it less compelling than the reiteration of Wallerstein's earlier themes -- above all, the way in which children's needs are often overlooked, and their resilience blithely assumed, in custody settlements. There are a few subjects on which Wallerstein becomes righteously indignant.
One is the way in which postdivorce visiting arrangements fail to take into account either the individual personalities or the changing needs of children. The painstakingly equalized schedules that placate some parents and help some kids may make others feel like movable property.
What works for a 6-year-old may no longer suffice for an adolescent. They are seen and heard and consulted,'' Wallerstein writes. But the child for whom visiting arrangements are court-ordered or negotiated by still-angry parents ''is a passive vessel -- like a rag doll that stays put in whatever position it is placed. Why, she asks, can't such arrangements better accommodate the temperament and growth of the individual child?
One 9-year-old boy she cites was ordered by the court to fly from Flint, Mich.
