Messy Matrimony Musings
I’d seen the news that John Stamos and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos are splitting up and didn’t give it much thought (Rebecca’s almost certainly too high maintenace for me) until I saw Laurence Simon’s post explaining, “Apparently he wanted kids, she didn’t.” Isn’t that the kind of thing you decide upon before entering into an “until death do you part” type of arrangement?
On a similar vein, Michael Demmons ponders the wisdom of inter-faith marriages:
[H]ow can a Christian reconcile marrying a Jew – someone who denies that Jesus is the Son of God. Or, vice versa, how may a Jew marry someone who, in effect, is worshipping someone that claims to be the Son of God? Essentially, each is marrying someone who, while the other may “respect” his or her beliefs, denies what is supposed to be their spouse’s highest priority in life.
One would think trouble would ensue, no? Especially if they’re planning on raising kids together?
