Q. Why does the Catholic Church forbid divorce?

The Catholic Church forbids divorce because this was the clear teaching of Christ ... What God has joined together let no man put asunder (Matt. 19,6). The bond of a valid Christian marriage can be broken only by death. The Church has the utmost sympathy for the victims of divorce and does everything possible to help them ... but it cannot change the law of God.
