Internet dating leading to marriage
The man told the court how the pressure began when his wife started meeting other Russians living in Malta. In the meantime, she was spending a lot of time on the internet and abandoned all household commitments.The couple started having frequent arguments on the matter until one day the woman left Malta unannounced and never returned.After that, there was a total breakdown in communication between the two.She did not even attend court proceedings in Malta.Now what this means is a Christian woman won’t just look for a man who has a cross tattooed on his shoulder, but a man who is ready to die daily in the sacrificial calling of leading a home.Love as Christ loved the Church and gave himself for her.Madam Justice Abigail Lofaro heard how the couple married in April 2003, just a few months after meeting on an internet dating site for Russians seeking a stable relationship.
So a Christian is not free to marry outside the Lord. And what saddens me, Tony, is how many believers get so entangled emotionally with unbelievers that they either throw away their convictions or they stand on their head to see the other person as a believer when he is not. A mature believer will want his or her spouse not just to profess some kind of creed or be willing to go to church.
A judge has annulled a marriage between a Maltese man and a Russian woman who met on an internet dating site after hearing that her sole objective was to obtain dual citizenship.
The couple tied the knot just a few months after the woman flew to Malta and later began exerting pressure to obtain dual citizenship, leading the judge to note how it was “blatantly obvious” that this was the only aim of the marriage.
The court heard how the couple met again in Russia but she had no intention of returning to Malta.
They agreed to initiate divorce proceedings in Russia but she then told him to start the process in Malta instead.
