Here is a synopsis of an intriguing conversation I had with an interviewer on the 10th of October, 2017.
Interviewer: Can you marry a divorcee?
ED: Who is a divorcee, please?
Interviewer: I mean someone who made a mistake or a bad marital decision that led to a divorce.
ED: If I understand you clearly, you mean to ask if I can marry someone who made a MISTAKE or once made a bad marital decision?
Interviewer: Yes, please.
ED: If something is a mistake, then it means it was an error in calculation, opinion and judgement, caused by poor reasoning, carelessness and insufficient knowledge.
ED: Have you ever made a bad financial judgement or mistake?
Interviewer: Oh yes, quite a handful, I just made one recently sef.
ED: Okay, how would you feel if someone castigated or stigmatised you based on a financial mistake?
ED: I think a divorce is an all-encompassing emotional mistake. Mistakes to me are the learning curves of life and as long as you are attentive to the instructor, you will be fine.
Interviewer: But God says he hates divorce.
ED: Yes, It is written in Malachi 2 vs16 that ‘he hates divorce’, not that he hates divorcees. One is the act or judicial declaration, the other is his relationship with the persons or personalities involved.
ED: So yes I can marry an emotionally stable adult despite their past.
ED: My focus is emotional stability not a herald of their past. Anyone can make a mistake.
Here is my virtual hug to anyone experiencing a divorce or the grey areas of life. May you forgive and permit yourself to love again.
I will be embarking on 14 days virtual joining with executives above the age of 40 who deserve to move from a life of dissatisfaction to satisfaction, meaningless to meaning.
