Pat Robertson: It's Okay To Divorce If Your Spouse Gets Alzheimer's


Pat Robertson, who’s clearly never seen The Notebook, said this week on his Christian Broadcasting Network program the 700 Club that it’s acceptable to divorce your spouse if they’re suffering from Alzheimer’s. Robertson was responding to a caller who said a friend had started seeing another woman after his wife started suffering from the disorder. “I know it sounds cruel, but if he’s going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but make sure she has custodial care and somebody looking after her,” Robertson said. When his cohost, Terry Meeuwsen asked about the vows “for better or for worse” and “in sickness and in health,” Robertson replied, “If you respect that vow, you say `til death do us part … This is a kind of death.”
