Photo Credit: Laura Nubuck

(Christian Institute) U.K. couples will be able to file for divorce online this year if a controversial new project goes ahead.

Government ministers are drafting a pilot scheme which will allow divorce proceedings to be initiated over the internet for the first time, in order to save time and paperwork.

The move was instantly seized upon by family lawyers, who would like the government to allow no-fault divorce.

    The Holy Bible says that God hates divorce. Don’t get divorce, unless the spouse is a real criminal based on the Holy Bible. Pray and read God’s Word and do God’s will and wait for Him. He helps everyone!

    [“For the Lord God of Israel says that He hates divorce, for it covers one’s garment with violence,” says the Lord of hosts. “Therefore take heed to your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously.”] – Malachi chapter 2

    As far as marriage goes the only involvement government should have is in contract law (which requires adult consent) and intervening in cases of abuse of spouse or children. It should not be dictating who can marry, when they can marry, when they can end the marriage or for what reason.

    • Amos Moses

      “It should not be dictating who can marry, when they can marry,”

      if you involve government then you are giving them control …… and they have a vested interest in its control when you do ……. so they do get to control it ………. and you have consented to that control ….. there is no contract to anything that is illegal or causes harm to another …………..

      • james blue

        The only involvement government has is in contract law.

        • Amos Moses

          No …. you are not ….. there is no ability to contract for an illegal activity or one that harms another …….. consenual or not …………

          • james blue

            What on earth are you wandering into? We are talking contract law and marriage, not illegal activity.

          • Amos Moses

            you wandered there as you are making statements about contracts …………. homosexuality does harm to both participants ……….. there is not right to a contract that does that ……….

          • james blue

            What harm does homosexuality do to participants?

          • Amos Moses

            ask the CDC …… it is well documented ………… unless you want to believe lies that it does not ………… denial of the truth does not alter it …………..

          • james blue

            Examples please.

          • Lawrence Bates

            various venereal disease as well as aids and other medical complications. Not to mention the mental complications involved.

          • james blue

            Heterosexuals have the same diseases and medical complications. Heterosexuals suffer mental complications.

            Try again.

          • Amos Moses

            ok …. here is the example …… go to Google ….. do you need help finding it …… type CDC and HOMOSEXUALITY in the search box and hit enter ……… if you need help …… ask mommy ……

          • james blue

            Homosexuals suffer no different ailments than heterosexuals.

          • Amos Moses

            not the ailments …… it is the RATES of ailments ……….. and it is a sizable difference ………..

          • james blue

            There are more heterosexuals. It’s not homosexuality, its promiscuity. A monogamous gay couple has no more chance of catching an STD than a monogamous heterosexual couple. Heterosexuals who sleep around have more chance of catching an STD than a monogamous gay couple.

            It’s not the gender of the people you sleep with, it’s the number.

          • Amos Moses

            homosexuals are as a group more promiscuous and there are more dangerous behaviors to their activities ………. so fail ……… as a group they are not “monogamous” …

          • james blue

            Single heterosexual people as a group are not monogamous.

          • Amos Moses

            Okaaaaaaaaaaay………….. My fault, I forgot (again) who I’m conversing with ……..

          • Amos Moses

            Homophobia Causes STDs and Fat-Shaming Causes Obesity (and Other Urban Myths)

          • james blue

            Okaaaaaaaaaaay………….. My fault, I forgot (again) who I’m conversing with

          • Amos Moses

            ” Heterosexuals who sleep around have more chance of catching an STD than a monogamous gay couple.”

            Google “myth of homosexual monogamy” …… not an urban myth ….. a near complete myth ………… it, for all practical purposes, does not exist ……..
