And one of them having a child from a previous marriage is not an issue. I submit to him and his law not what the world or my culture tells me, not what my parents tell me(if it is against GOD's law),not what anyone tells me.

Nowhere in the Quran can u see GOD asking single men not to marry divorced women just becoz they have a child. For i know and you know sister,that believers are guaranteed happiness here and in the here after only because they uphold GOD's law and nothing else and do not setup partners beside him.

With respect to your question about divorced women with children factoring into a marriage decision, of course it factors in, however so does education, religion, age, race, beauty and a whole host of other considerations.

How do you feel about marrying a divorced women with a child? Im sincerely just asking your opinion on this, because i cant seem to get over it.

I personally believe that in this world, there are two kinds of laws that one can follow.

One,is GOD's perfect law which makes perfect sense.

And children succumb because they are just not conditioned to go against them...
