How do I get married again

Divorced and remarried?


The Evangelical Church does not rule out remarriage of divorced people - but also wants to know from those involved whether they are really serious ...

Can I be married in church if I have been divorced? This question is one of the most frequently asked questions. And it's not that easy to answer.

It is a sad fact that marriages fail. Being guilty and "feeling guilty" is a subliminal theme in almost every breakup. The Evangelical Church takes it very seriously that marriages - with all love and despite all good will - can fail and knows about the power of forgiveness.

The Evangelical Church therefore does not rule out remarriage of divorced people. But at the same time she holds on to the indissolubility of marriage. It is the responsibility of the trusting pastor to ensure that remarriage is not lightly entered into. In a personal conversation he will ask about the motives for the desire for a church wedding.
