Christian Husband with Covenant Marriage Agreement
vs. Routine No-Fault Divorce

A Christian husband is citing Ohio Law to protect his family from no-fault divorce. Months ago, Paul Neumann was fully supporting his stay-at-home wife and their daughter in their North Olmsted home. Now he is a defendant in Cuyahoga County divorce court. He submitted his wife’s signed wedding covenant agreement to the court because she promised to uphold her obligations in accordance with the “Commandments of God given in His Word” and “the divine laws and ordinance for the governance of marriage.” Neumann is giving the court an ultimatum: either his wife committed fraud on their wedding day and tricked him into marriage, or she intended to be married in conformity with the rules of their church.
