A man named “John” heard me talking on a recent radio show about my divorce in A.D. 1983.  He contacted me by email to discuss his own, current divorce predicament and see if I could offer any insights.  Here’s my response:


Hi John,

Marriage and divorce were a primary focus of my life in the 1980s and early 1990s. My A.D. 1983 divorce nearly killed me.  Really.  I lost everything but my pulse.  Put me in a depression that lasted five years.  Three years going to bottom; two more years coming back up to a point where I could fake being normal.  I never really got over it.  But I learned to accept it, live with it.  I don’t think about much today.

My point is that divorce issues are no longer fresh in my mind and I no longer have much to say about it.

I will say this:  After my divorce in A.D. 1983, I began to study the relevant law intently, obsessively.  I learned a lot, but I never learned enough.

However, I knew a man in the 1990s who also went through divorce and studied that affliction in greater depth then I had.  Never actually met the man.  Corresponded by letters and some phone calls.  I haven’t talked to him in 20 years.  I don’t recall his name.  But his research indicated that the modern “marriage” is not a Godly “marriage” wherein one man and one woman become one flesh.  In other words, a Godly marriage includes only two earthly entities:  you and your spouse (one man and one woman) that become “one flesh” that was realnot a fiction.
