Marriage and Divorce - Christian perspectives

BBC Bitesize Religious Studies provides a brief overview of Christian perspectives on marriage and divorce. There is a short test activity to consolidate learning.

Classroom suggestions:


a) Ask students to identify and define the key terms in this topic (e.g. marriage, divorce, cohabitation, faithfulness).

b) In small groups ask students to take each of the vows made in a Christian marriage service and suggest examples of what each means in the 21st century.

c) What reasons can students offer for the differing perspectives between different Christian denominations on issues such as divorce, and remarriage?
