Religious Divorce: Blogger And Former ‘Blossom’ Star Shares Her Story, And Here’s Why It Can Matter To You

religion and divorceReligious divorce rituals aren’t something couples today generally think about when they decide to file for divorce, but blogger and former Blossom star Mayim Bialik recently shed light on hers in a series of recent posts for

In comments to Access Hollywood Live from Monday, Bialik explained why she took to the web to discuss her and her ex Michael Stone’s experience.

‘Get’ Out Of Here

In addition to filing, Bialik and Stone had to attend a religious ceremony called a “Get.”

“There’s a religious process. You sit in the same room and you watch your divorce deed be written. It’s actually a very interesting thousands year old document that you watch written and you have to be in the same room as your ex,” Bialik said, adding that it “was a very cathartic, very emotionally powerful sense of closure for us.”

Religions differ with how they handle a religious divorce. Some have former rituals (like Judaism, Bialik’s chosen faith), while others, such as many sects of Christianity, don’t require anything at all, but do have stringent rules in place for when one is justified to end a marriage and when it’s okay to remarry in the eyes of God.

The Advantage Of Religious Divorce Help

While some can find religious divorce a burden, in Bialik’s case, it seemed to help the couple through the healing process. Here are some advantages to the leaning on your religion through this difficult time.

Churches of many different faiths place as much importance on helping the divorced to heal as they do on the marriages themselves. This affords you a built-in support system whether you’ve gone through an easy do it yourself divorce or bitter, combative courtroom drama.

Even with a DIY divorce, this can be an incredibly confusing time. From a faith standpoint, there is often a layer of guilt that comes with getting a divorce, and by leaning on your faith’s leaders, you can start to have some clarity about where your divorce “fits in” with your belief system.

Finally, if you have a desire to remarry, the statistics should not be ignored. In this report from USA Today, it was stated that interfaith marriages are less likely to endure than marrying someone, who believes AND PRACTICES the same faith that you do. Holding fast to your beliefs — whatever they are — and becoming more involved can put you in a good position to meet someone with whom you are more compatible.

Are you a person of faith, who has been through a failed marriage. What religious divorce thoughts and experiences do you have to share?
