Question: When do you feel divorce is detrimental?Sri Chinmoy: Divorce is detrimental when the inner beings want to continue to be together, when the inner beings feel that in the course of time both husband and wife will better understand each other and lead a more illumining life. The inner beings must determine the continuation of the marriage. If the seekers do not listen to the voice of their inner beings, if their outer minds compel them to get a divorce, then the divorce is detrimental to their spiritual progress. It is the inner beings that should determine both marriage and divorce.
