Pope Francis has turned heads again with another controversial view. On Wednesday, in front of his weekly general audience, he said that sometimes divorce is "inevitable."
He also said, "Sometimes it can become even morally necessary, precisely when it comes to subtracting the weaker spouse, or small children, from more serious wounds caused by intimidation and violence, humiliation and exploitation.”
As of now, the Catholic Church doesn't officially accept divorces, though it does allow church-sanctioned annulments. But getting one is often a lengthy and complicated process.
