Divorce and Religion

Several religious groups look down upon divorce and some even ban it. However, divorce rates in the United States suggest that religion is a negligible factor among divorced couples. Even if divorce is prohibited by your religion, it is important to keep in mind that an unhealthy marriage is not good for you or your spouse, and it may be your only course of action.

If you or someone you know thinking about a divorce, contact the San Diego divorce lawyers of Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP at 760-722-7646 to learn more about filing for divorce.

Religious Complications

Many popular religions have rules against getting divorced. Different denominations of Christianity have different rules for divorce. Most tend to accept it, but only as a worst case scenario. Catholicism allows divorce but has rules against remarriage. Judaism and Islam both accept divorce. Dharmic religions, such as Hinduism and Buddhism, do not have a concept of divorce.

Regardless of your religion’s views on divorce, the United States government as well as every state government recognizes divorce. When you file for a divorce, your state government does not ask for your religious affiliation; any married couple in the US is eligible for a divorce in most cases.

No matter what your religion may be, you should always consult with an experience divorce lawyer before you file for a divorce, as it can be a complicated matter.
