I know about one Priest who did that to become a Bishop.ialmisry said:Then he should be deposed.Marc1152 said:I know someone who very recently left his family to become a Monk. Apparently the Bishop has allowed it.deusveritasest said:Seeing as how the monastic life and married life are viewed as two distinct and separate realities, I would imagine that accepting one from being in the other would dissolve the previously established one.synLeszka said:In Orthodox sacramentology, does the taking of monastic tonsure by a married person negate the existence of the tonsured's marriage?
I have noticed in Tsarist statutes that one of the reasons for the dissolution of marriage is the acceptance of monastic tonsure. Does this belief still exist today?
