Aside from the qualification for pastors in regard to divorce and remarriage, one of the toughest challenges a pastor faces is the decision about marrying people going into second marriages. I have known some pastors that had a blanket rule, no second marriages. To me, this seems to be the wrong approach. The other approach requires treating each case individually. It takes seeking the will of the Lord, common sense, the characters of each of the partners and their part in the breakdown of the first marriage, and of course, maturity and growth if they were the fault. It is a judgement call, one that I am glad I do not have to make.
