Irene, I'm sad to read of your son's situation & unhappiness. Many of the world in this situation would do what they think is right for them & go on to remarry & hopefully be happy again. But since you're seeking Scriptural guidance on this, I see that the Lord & the apostle Paul were very clear on this issue as pertaining to God's view on marriage.

Jesus spoke about this in Matthew 19:3-9. Jesus first gives the meaning of marriage: that it is a binding act since these individual people have come together in marriage & have become 'one flesh'. This means that God doesn't recognize divorce as those two have become one flesh by their act of commitment & consummation. Then Paul spoke in 1 Cor 7:10-11, that if one departs (divorces) from the other, then they should remain in the state of singleness (this applied to both husband & wife, even though the instruction was given for the woman). For if they should remarry, then they break the covenant made towards the holy gift of marriage. For this reason, apart from turning to Christ for salvation, the decision for marriage remains so important a step to embark on.

If your son is a believer, then God understands his situation & will give Him sufficient Grace to keep on the path of obedience to remain single for His sake.

My 49 y.o son has always been spiritual and follows the scriptures. His marriage was based on his partners pregnancy.It turned out to be loveless marriage. They are now divorced but he feels guilty because what the Bible says about divorce

His life is stifled and can't move on.

Should he return to a loveless/ sexless mariage because of the scripture ???
