There are times however when separation or civil divorce may be the only way forward eg where there is violence and physical abuse in the family.
The Catholic Church teaches that where a civil divorce has become necessary … the “marriage” remains valid. The Church accepts people who are divorced and remarried however they are not admitted to Holy Communion: the irrevocable character of God’s love that the Church celebrates. Mk 10:9
Tough statement…..What is your opinion?
