A friend of mine, 30 years my junior, has a wife who suffers from alcoholism. She takes her drinking (wine) seriously and recently went home to visit with her parents. Both her mother and sister are alcoholics. While at home she decided that it's time to end the marriage as her husband does not drink and does not want it in the home. I've done much reading regarding all the various interpretations of divorce and remarriage according to the various faiths so I thought I'd ask you folks your opinions regarding divorce. She has abandoned the marriage and the wine bottle is her idol. This lady is an alcoholic; she refuses to seek help; life with her husband is a constant battle; at one point he ended up in the hospital for two days. After six years of "abuse" at the hands of his wife, he has decided that even if she were to make a one eighty with her life..., it's over. Now, I have been raised to believe the only reason for divorce would be for adultery and to remarry would be committing sin. So, your opinions please. Is he free to remarry considering his wife's actions and her adamant attitude that "she" does not have a problem and intends to continue drinking? He's has accepted Jesus as his Savior..., his wife? Who knows?
