As the divorce of A-list celebs Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise shocks people around the world, the religion known as Scientology can’t help but be brought up in a few discussions. To many, Scientology is not well-known and the rituals are unfamiliar. For example, the rituals regarding divorce. Divorce in other religions is often times much simpler; Jews must sign a contract, Mormons must undertake a ‘sealing cancellation’. The Church of Scientology, however, believes that the struggles in a marriage result from unsolved and undiscussed problems and that communication is the best way to solve these problems. The Church tries to restore the marriage as best as they can through therapy, courses called ‘How to Improve Your Marriage’, and in crucial situations, counselors help the couple through exercises. Communication is such a big part of Scientology that during the wedding ceremony the couple completes the ARC triangle or “affinity, reality, and communication”. The former Hollywood couple believed so much in communication that they stated in their vows that they would not go to sleep at night without resolving any problems they had.
For now, it’s unclear as to if Katie and Tom have or will undergo therapy through the Church, though rumors state that Katie’s reason for filing for divorce was because she no longer wanted her and her daughter, Suri, to be involved in Scientology. The Church of Scientology has strict rules preventing members to communicate with disconnected members of the faith who are branded as a PTS, or potential trouble source So even if all Katie Holmes wanted was to convert religions, divorce is pretty much mandatory in a case like that.
Divorce should always be a final choice. One should always make attempts to rescue their marriage if they still love each other.
