Why collaborative divorce does not work?
There may be issues with communication, personalities, values, and hurt feelings that can make the collaborative process absolutely useless. If your soon-to-be former spouse is a bully, or cheater, or if their attorney is, having the court system can keep them in check.
Is it a sin to divorce?
MYTH: God forbids all divorce, and divorce is the unpardonable sin. TRUTH: Scripture shows that God gives permission for divorce. Jesus specifically allowed divorce for infidelity: Matthew 19:9 (ESV) And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery.
