It is not a set of rules given to anyone wanting to pass judgment. Therefore, the final choice must be that of the man and the church. That does not mean that the qualifications are not important.

I fell in Love after long discussions about Life. He was married for 23 years when he decided to file for divorce. Several years before I came into his life he questioned why he was still married. Did he want out of his marriage because of me, no. He is a very strong willed man and not one that can be lead astray from what he believes to be right or wrong.
