The Council Speaks

Q: I have children with a man I was not married to, but I've met someone else I care about deeply. We want to marry, but I am struggling with the decision to do so. I am a Christian (although my relationship with the Lord is off and on) and need help knowing what would be right in the Lord's eyes.

A: First some questions to consider. How is the relationship between your children and their father? How long have you been separated and had you separated before and got back together? Have you talked with your children about what theywould think of your getting married to another?

It's very importa...
