Marriage & Commitment, Separation & Divorce
A statement of the Quaker belief in inclusiveness, this pamphlet by Southeastern Yearly Meeting takes into consideration the total range of couplings, consideration for children, concern for step-children, first and consecutive marriages, same-sex and different-sex unions, separations and divorce.
SEYM was the first yearly meeting affiliated with FUM to be inclusive. SEYM feels blessed to have a wealth of experience that includes the vibrancy of new Friends and the wisdom of old Friends from the FGC, Conservative, and FUM traditions. FGC Friends have applauded this pamphlet, as have some Conservative Friends in America.
This chapter from Southeastern Yearly Meeting's Faith & Practice was published as a separate pamphlet in 2006.
