Divorce and Religion
Several religious groups look down upon divorce and some even ban it. However, divorce rates in the United States suggest that religion is a negligible factor among divorced couples. Even if divorce is prohibited by your religion, it is important to keep in mind that an unhealthy marriage is not good for you or your spouse, and it may be your only course of action.

Many popular religions have rules against getting divorced. Different denominations of Christianity have different rules for divorce. Most tend to accept it, but only as a worst-case scenario. Catholicism allows divorce but has rules against remarriage. Judaism and Islam both accept the divorce. Dharmic religions, such as Hinduism and Buddhism, do not have a concept of divorce.
Regardless of your religion’s views on divorce, the United States government as well as every state government recognizes divorce. When you file for a divorce, your state government does not ask for your religious affiliation; any married couple in the US is eligible for a divorce in most cases.
No matter what your religion may be, you should always consult with an experienced divorce lawyer before you file for a divorce, as it can be a complicated matter.
