  1. I don’t know whether or not to pray that this union may last. And I hate to sound preachy of some sort. But if you need to be under a man, it would be better for you to locate your first husband: whatever you do with this new union is adulterous except the case where your first husband is dead.

    • They divorced the way law deemed it fit and her ex husband is already married. So why are you sounding like a child? Why didn’t her ex husband go back for her and instead he went ahead to marry another woman. Is he not enjoying his new woman? must Monalisa go back to a man who never loved/valued her? Don’t judge or condemn her so that you too will not be judged.

  2. @ Metu Nyetu you keep saying this all the time, let me ask you one question, what if the ex husband is not ready for a relationship, will she force herself on the man? Abeg leave that matter of adultery and face reality. Monalisa I support your decision to remarry and God will surely protect your marriage.

    • And I will keep saying it @ Jojo, because I hate divorce. And ever since I realised its implications which many Christians today are happily oblivious of, it behooves me to scream out loud.

      You asked what if the husband is not ready to take her back? Well, there is only one thing she would do: stay single! These are not my words so I don’t see why you should direct words at me. Go ask God why He made such a demand!

      The problem is that we try to fit God into our own mould; we try to make God reason like us. Instead of reasoning from the divine down to the human, and recognizing that sin has marred the divine image within us, we reason from our fallen condition and project our own feelings and ideas onto God. That is risky, if I must say.

      I don’t begrudge Mona Lisa her happiness. I don’t even know the probability of her reading this. But for the sake of other thousands that would, I have to warn them to marry only because of true love, not material things that fade away, to preserve social status or class. This is the only thing that could save from divorce.

  3. Monalisa I support you, God himself know you can’t remain single mother all your life just because you married a mistake husband before. And who was never ready to call you his wife. Congrats on your marriage. I wish well.

  4. @metu nyetu i want to let u Know that even married people commit adultery every day so stop this ur adultry preaching if she remains Single same you Will critisize her ” live and let live” we Know u are holy but the end shall tell

  5. Metu was right @ Jojo. D oats ppl tk on d altar of marriage is neva witnss by humans alone bt God. If am correct, I tink 1 of d oats is:-FOR BETTER FOR WORSE, TILL DEATH DO US PART- am I right?

    Ppl shld knw want marriage entails b4 venturing in2 it. God is d God of oats. N dat is y marriage shld neva b a jump-in-jump-out affair.
    Ur opinion can neva change surpass dat of God concernin marriage so pls go get urslf a bottle of chivita juice n chill out.

  9. Nice tru talk “I am designed to be under a man “I never heard a woman say that before. I wish you happy married life.

  10. @Metu you are right my brother. Unfortunately only the regenerated can understand and appreciate your point. She should understand that as far as she and her former husband remain married to different partners, they remain adulterous abominable in the sight of God. That is God’s word and standard and not man. That is why we must be careful in the decision we take before and after marriage.

  11. I want to thank D Hunter and Oko Joe. At least I have people who do not consider me unneccesarily judgemental.

    For the rest, and for MaryF in whose estimate I reason like a child, well, I have to warn you all to be careful. I once thought like you until one fateful day that I engaged some men in a fierce arguement on the issue of divorce. One of the men(the one I did not even expect to know something) said this thing I’ve been saying. But then I did not know. And so I opposed him with all the strength of my reasoning.

    To settle the case, we had to flip over to Matthew 5:32 and 1 Corinthians 7:10-11. MaryF pls help us read them from your bible, for that was what opened my eyes and cured me of my humanistic reasoning.

    Divorce is more serious than we take it to be. The bible may have given room for divorce. But room for remarriage is non-negotiably closed.

    They say look before you leap. Now I know that whoever first used those words was speaking about marriage.

    I ones thought that a divorcee was free to take up another spouse until
