Divorce

Bahai divorce - what's it like? What's the process? (just out of curiousity)

Well, it is something I haven't tried so I am not sure I could say exactly what it is like! As I understand, from what I have read, if a married couple are in conflict and want to separate, they are encouraged to do everything they can do to work out their differences. If this fails and one or both of them just cannot bear the other then they can approach the Spirtual Assembly and make arrangements for the "year of patience". In that year the couple must live apart. If they move back together and then fall out again, they have to start the year again. At the end of that year they can get a divorce. Of course this is complicated with the legal situation in many places where Bahá'í marriage and divorce are not legally recognised as the civil proceedings need taking car of too and I really don't know how you link the two. Note, that for a Bahá'í divorce, as I understand it, there are no grounds for divorce, it is dependent on the feelings of the couple towards one another.

This would seem to suggest that "I love you but I am not in love with you" scenario played out as a reason for parting in the non-Bahá'í world, would not be seen as a valid reason to divorce someone in the Faith.

Dear friend yes one can protest is up to your conscience (but we are never to aleign politicaly) but your comment re the Baha'i ID card this is false. As Baha'is are allowed to join the military but not in a combat role. Baha'i's also are obediant to the laws of the land, so we do not try to avoid a draft if imposed, but usually there are ways to avoid combat roles.

Loving regards

The robot is clever indeed!! It gets its comments from real people and thus seems real itself!! It's a clever design I must admit.
