Bishop Noel Jones on Separation From His Wife
The twenty-two years of marriage came down to a bitter breakage when Noel and his former wife decided to eventually raise their hands from their married life.
Explaining the cause of his divorce, Noel appeared in a video sharing that what caused him to divorce was 'minuscule' compared to what others went through. But despite the cause, Noel admits he repented for his failed marriage. He further stretched on the reason for his separation from his wife as such,
I ruined my marriage in the name of God because she was oftentimes upset, we argued every time I had to leave...I was so out of balance, Church on Sunday, Bible class on Monday, gone until Saturday.
The 'frustration' that caught up in their marriage eventually led the pair to split for good.

Speaking to V-103 Atlanta in August 2014, the pastor clarified that he is done with marriage. Sending his message out to the people who are against the fact that he has chosen to remain unmarried, Noel said,
Many significant Bible characters were not married. Marriage is not a prerequisite for being in the pulpit.
Well, that's not all. His statement, quoting he is 'afraid of being married again,' is sure to answer all the questions to those wondering why he has not remarried yet despite being divorced several years ago.
Further, backing himself up for his decision regarding remarriage, he opted for a few words from a particular scripture from Bible, saying,
If a man divorces his wife, except for the cause of fornication, if they divorce for any other reason, then whoever he remarries he commits adultery, and whoever she marries commits adultery. So, it is really a great issue from a scriptural viewpoint.
With him defending his opinion of not tying a knot again, he is often in controversy for his relationship with girlfriend Loretta.

Are Bishop Noel Jones and Loretta Married?
It's been several years that Noel found himself a companion, but he stays firm in his statement regarding marriage.
Noel, being a preacher, many hardcore Bible followers believe it 'does not look good' for a preacher to be in a relationship without marriage.
However, Noel has a different opinion about it and does not hesitate to share. Addressing his years of relationship with Loretta, the pastor stated,
I think people are assuming that this woman is an inanimate object, who has no real choice as to whether or not she wants to be with me or not. If she's at the point where marriage is that critical to her and she knows my position, then it would seem to me that she would go find somebody to marry.
Clearly, he is not changing his mind about his wedding anytime soon or even later. But since his divorce, he has been linked with some famed women in the past.
