    Not in the good old days. She might be safer if she stayed and not rock the boat. No divorce. Get real.

    I'm not sure what you're going on about, but canon law provides for the victim of spousal abuse to leave by decree of the diocesan bishop. This is not new.

    Much better than the bad new days in which anyone can abandon their family for any or no reason.

    You seem to lack an understanding that this is not a theocracy, no matter how much you seem to advocate for it.

    Well in one breath you are speaking of making divorce illegal in the next breath you are speaking to how the archbishop would handle it.

    Wanting something prohibited in your religion is entirely different than making your religious beliefs law for everyone, no matter if they subscribe to your religion or not.

    I don't know where you got "archbishop" out of that. Diocesan bishop =/= archbishop.

    Of course, such cases should be handled by a civil court if one or both parties is unbaptized.

    Ok, that makes a big difference to the context.

    In one breath you speak of wanting divorce illegal, in the next breath you speak of wanting a Diocesan bishop to handle it.

    When you are speaking of laws for all citizens, why would you then speak about a bishop handling such things?

    Fair enough. The bishop should only handle the matter in cases where both parties are baptized.

    Otherwise civil courts should decide the matter.

    So now in your mind divorces should be illegal...what are the civil courts going to decide?
