I'm 57, the Ex is 54, the youngest child is 29, and we have been divorced for 8 years and 9 months, (and having a great time dating each other for 8 years, 8 months, and 19 days.) (It's complicated).
Right now, I have some Christians telling me we are going to Hell for not getting remarried, other Christians telling me we cannot ever remarry in their church, others telling me we should stop having sex because we are past reproductive age, and still others telling me we should get remarried immediately, but they require a 1 year waiting period, and we should lay off the sex until that expires.
An Islamic friend from one of the smaller branches tells me that if we embrace Islam, she must first be married to someone else and divorce them before she can remarry me - He informed me that couples wishing to reconcile in this way usually have the woman briefly marry one of the man's relatives and then immediately divorce them - it's frequent to avoid gossip by having a very quick turn-around on these ceremonies. I don't know if this means my younger brother would also have to convert, or not.
I'm starting to miss the 'good old days', when these groups would settle it all by yelling "Heretic" and then gouging out each other's eyes, etc. in a Christian manner. Seriously, it says something that the Roman Catholic church, supposedly so uncompromising on their definition of sin, or a splinter Muslem branch, are far from the most restrictive by doctrine. Some of the charismatic, fundamentalist sects are sounding just like the Skoptsy.
