My opinion is what you asked for, and there it is. Now that I answered those questions with my opinion, why don’t we answer them using the Scriptures as this web site was dedicated to do, and as they should be. My opinion is of no consequence unless it’s backed by the Bible.
Divorce is condoned in the bible for only one thing, fornication, which is to say adultery. Matthew 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
Divorce is “allowed”, which doesn’t necessarily mean condoned in the case of the husband or wife being a unbeliever. 1st Corinthians 7:13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. 7:15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace. If that husband was an unbeliever, then if he decided to leave you, you’re to “let him depart“. You wouldn’t be under the bondage of marriage in this case. In other words, you’re released from your vows.
Do you think that maybe he’s a believer? Well a believer wouldn’t abuse his wife without repentance. This would make him an unbeliever, which is worse than an infidel! And to boot he wouldn’t be providing for his own those things that are required of a believer: Love, Protection, Food, Shelter, Security, Peace of Mind, etc. 1st Timothy 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
Abuse, in my opinion, is the same as being an unbeliever and an infidel.
As far as the hate thing you mentioned… There’s not supposed to be any room in a Christians heart for hatred! If we’re to be Christ like, then we’re to hate the sin, not the sinner! Some repentance is needed there! Galations 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
