After getting to know more and more ex-christians, not just ex-pastor but ex-christians in general, I see this surprising trend of divorce. What seems to happen is that a person deconverts, stress enters into the relationship, and then a divorce happens. Now marriages are a hard and complicated thing. Sometimes two people just can’t live together and the marriage fails. Fine, I get that. That doesn’t surprise me.
What surprises me is how often this is initiated by the Christian partner.
Atheist: So let me get this straight: Because I don’t believe in God anymore, you are going to ignore God’s multiple commandments regarding how you are required to stay married to me?
Christian: Yes. I can’t deal with you ignoring Jesus so I’m going to ignore Jesus and find someone else who will ignore Jesus with me so that (s)he and I can follow Jesus together.
