F O U N D A T I O N S 60 He calls every disciple to keep to this narrow way. The church community welcomes into its midst all who are willing to accept Christ’s call and to forsake everything for him. 80 With regard to divorce and remarriage, Christ says: “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery against her; and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.” The church community must uphold Jesus’ teaching, which is the only stand consistent with real truth- fulness and love. Even if separation should occur in isolated cases, no member of the church community may divorce his or her spouse. Further, no divorced member may remarry if a former spouse is still living. 81 The callings of man and woman in marriage are different, yet equal in worth. According to the New Testament, the husband is to be the head of the family, and the wife his helper. He must never dominate her, but should cherish and serve her in humility. At a wedding in our communities, the bridegroom promises to always honor and respect his bride, and is reminded of the apostle Peter’s warning that if he neglects this, God may refuse his prayers. Likewise, a wife should support her husband in what is good. Above all, both spouses alike are charged with leading each other closer to Christ.
