    Thank you for this podcast. I’ve been curious about Divorce Care because my church would never ever host Divorce Care so I thought a church that used it was progressive and maybe ok. Knowing now that the program only recognizes infidelity and abandonment as reasons to divorce, I can’t go to that. Finding out that the group is men and women is also a “NO” for me. I also have had a strong fear of men (finally came out of that). Thank you for recommending June Hunt’s little books, Gretchen. I only knew about her “Domestic Violence” book. I am going to look at the others. I have been told by a few men at my church that there are not any biblical grounds beyond infidelity and any verses would be taken out of context. I love how both Natalie and Gretchen brought up dysfunction and the effects on kids. It’s so important. I like the term “Life Saving Divorce.” Thank you for addressing God’s viewpoint and having anger towards God.

    Thank you for the comments about Divorce Care. I went to about 75% of the program. I took away a few good things from the videos but, as Gretchen says, women are not comfortable in man/woman groups at this point in our lives. I was very guarded with my words.

    great info thank you Natalie and Gretchen
