My spouse fell into 'Shincheonji'. Is this grounds for divorce?

The mere fact that your spouse believes in a particular religion is not grounds for divorce.

However, what if you repeatedly run away from home or squander your family assets for the sake of religious life?
Due to excessive religious life, housework, childcare,
What if continuing your marriage becomes impossible because you have neglected your spouse?

In this case, it may be grounds for divorce in court.
The court said, “Freedom of religion cannot be infringed even if a couple is married.
There is an obligation between spouses to cooperate with each other and maintain a smooth marital life.
There are certain limits to that freedom of faith, as her wife focuses only on her religious life.
What if her marriage broke down because she neglected housework and childcare?
“The main responsibility for the breakdown should be seen as lying with her wife.”
The court ruled and accepted her husband's divorce petition.

This is a procedure in accordance with Korean law. For foreigners, detailed procedures may vary.
