Pat Robertson: Who Says Its Ok to Divorce Your Spouse with Alzheimer's?

During a recent show on the 700 Club, Robertson was asked what advice a man should give to a friend who began seeing another woman after his wife started suffering from the incurable neurological disorder.
"I know it sounds cruel, but if he's going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but make sure she has custodial care and somebody looking after her," Robertson said.
