Navigating Parental Divorce: Guidance for Adult Children
Series 01 Straight Truth Podcast
In this episode of the Straight Truth Podcast, Dr. Josh Philpot and Dr. Richard Caldwell address the challenging scenario of adult children guiding their parents through marital difficulties and potential divorce. Drawing from a Christian perspective, they emphasize the biblical stance on the sanctity of marriage and the sinfulness of divorce, unless in the case of sexual immorality or abandonment. They suggest adult children approach their parents with scriptures, and involve siblings if possible. If the parents are unresponsive, it is recommended to reach out to the church leadership for support. This approach extends to situations where a widowed parent wishes to remarry. Here, the conversation should involve understanding the loneliness of the parent and the impacts on family dynamics, always ensuring the motivation for these discussions is clear communication and love.
