Jesus prohibited divorce except for Adultery, that included lying about ones virginity. The non adulterer could remarry. The adulterer was not free to marry, and anyone marrying one is entering a prohibited marriage. A divorce without cause, was no divorce, and so, another marriage was a type of bigamy. The exception is in 1Corinthians 7:15. If the unbeliever departs, the Christian can remarry because the marriage was not 'in the Lord'.
Deuteronomy 22:17-19, 28-29, 24:1-4, Proverbs 2:17 (forsaketh husband), Isaiah 54:4-8, Jeremiah 3:1, Malachi 2:14-16.
Matthew 5:31-32, 19:3-12, Mark 10:2-12, Luke 16:18, 1Corinthians 6:15-16, 7:10-17, 27.
1Timothy 3:1-15, Titus 1:6-9, 1Peter 5:2-3.

Why can you not abstain from the lust of your soul, repent and ask for forgiveness fast/pray if you must, you are either an overcomer or a failure, remember the race is not for the swift but for those that endure for if you suffer a while in this life for Christ name sake you will also reign with him and partake of the reward in the next.

God is faithful and we must strive to also be faithful, if this was all to this life men would be most miserable, ask and it shall be given seek and ye shall find. to Sin sexually was never the option.

My conviction tells me not until the ex spouse dies. However, whenever I meet a beautiful divorcee, my decietful heart tells me something else.

I avoid the divorcees in the singles group simply because I do not want to "sit in judgement" regarding HOW their marriage ended and "whether" they can BIBLICALLY be remarried.

So, as a never married bachelor in his 40's, I wait for a nice widow.

One single woman friend I respect greatly waited 20 years until her ex died. She then promptly remarried. All I can say is she was true to her convictions.

And on adultery, my dark heart sometimes tells me if I am going to lust and be guilty, I might as well partake of REAL adultery if the same sin applies!
---obewan on 4/24/09

Many churches remarry people. God does not mean for people to sin instead of marry.
---Betty on 4/24/09

Actually Jay,

I happen to disagree with your analogy of not wanting to commit Adultery down to everyone committing it their heart so what theory just focus on Jesus and everything ill be okay.

That's not bible: Fornication and Adultery cross different path of different peoples life and the understanding of theses sin are not easy but the sins are deadly.

What you should really be saying is Read/study the word of God on the subject and steer clear from the paths of sexual sin!
---Carla3939 on 4/24/09

Mische:- Dear angry lady,you strike out at the wrong Party.Many have said the same thing I did,Your interpretation of what you call truth is to satisfy the problem created by circumstances in your life.READ what Jesus said when he refers back to Genesis Matt19:4-6.Dont blame The RCC for the lack of comprehension.The vow of Marriage is like God when all the Godly atributes come together as MAN and WIFE.Understand this"you cannot separate God, also you cannot separate what is joined in Marriage as GOD." Hence one must choose wisely with much deliberation, study your partner , refrain unevenly yokeing, examine impediments .Don't look at figure and form this changes.LAST STAY THE COURSE. If after all, then separate but NO REMARRIAGE.
---MIC on 4/24/09

As a Christian, we strive to be more Christ-like. On this issue everyone seems to be worried about being an adulterer if they are divorced an re-marry. The fact is, and it is scriptural, that we are all adulterers at heart. Jesus said if you look at another with lust, you have committed adultery in your heart. What Christians need to be concerned with is thier relationship with Jesus Christ and everything else will fall into place as the Lord wills.
---Jay on 4/24/09

Yes, you are very correct. If we were living like Jesus we would never forsake our spouse when they are in sin. We would pray for their repentance and our restoration since Jesus made us ONE FLESH for life. Instead we are walking in offense (which is a natural fleshly response, BTW) and forsaking God's way of handling our lives. Unfortunately for our witness and for our children, we are instead choosing to forsake the vows we made. We end up joining usually with someone else's spouse/children, taking them as our own---committing adultery ourselves per the word of the Lord. Now, we are no different than the ones who committed adultery against us. In God's eyes, we are just as guilty now. :(
---Cindy on 4/20/09

If we thought like christ we would never divorce and forsake our spouse.
---DJ on 3/19/09

Refer to Matthew 19:3-9 Notice the first question Jesus was asked: Is it alright to divorce for every reason? Jesus responds that it's not alright to divorce...when asked again, why Moses allowed divorce, Jesus states it was hardness of men's hearts...only biblical reason to divorce is fornication...never to remarry unless death of spouse
---Bro_Smith on 3/6/09

If you commit sin before/after your saved sin is still sin?

Then how can you commit adultery being saved/unsaved and it not still be be Adultery.

To understand marriage you first need to study the Word of God. Then you can rightly divide the word of truth unashamed.
---Carla3939 on 2/18/09

If you were an unbeliever when you got divorced, then yes you can remarry.

If you were a believer and your ex-spouse wasn't and he/she divorced you, then yes you can remarry.

If you and your ex-spouse were both saved and he/she was unfaithful to you, and it lead to divorce, then yes you can remarry.

If you were both believers and you were the unfaithful one, and it lead to divorce, then no you can not remarry.
---Bryan on 2/7/09

If you are born again your eyes are *open* or should be open to the law of marriage. Marriage is not a sin according to 1 Corinth 7.

Fornication and Adultery is. So how can a christian remarry and not commit sin?

How will a man commit murder after he is saved and not be a murderer.

How will a person get saved and go steal again and it not be sin?

Remarriage is the ONLY exception?
---Carla5754 on 2/5/09

Mic~ I do tend to agree with you a lot on this issue. Marriage is not to be taken lightly, and involves a massive amount of committment. A generation ago, divorce was more-less unheard of, but now-a-days people want to get a divorce over nothing much. It is not a Catholic teaching to work at staying married, but a Biblical teaching. Society has been so detrimental to people's views on marriage, and rarely do people see it as a sacred bond. No wonder God's wrath is quickly approaching. I also loved your words about how women are designed to be 'beside' their husbands, not in front, or behind. Those were wise and beautiful words!
---Anne on 11/26/08

So now you are trying to interpret what Jesus says?
and then fire at someone who is speaking truth.
Mic, the RCC is by no means the MIND of CHRIST.
ginger just stated the TRUTH. None of us has the right to place authority on the meaning of what Christ said according to marriage.
Jesus was addressing the Pharisees on the issue to try and trap him. Don't you get that?
or are you so spiritually blind by the false teachings of the RCC not to see that?
---miche3754 on 11/26/08

Ginger:-You are a sensitive caring woman.But marriage is a sacrament final and binding.A period of Courtship,and getting to know each other is like setting the 'foundation' of your Marriage.One must delve to find the gold that is either there or not there. If it does not produce the desired melody Then DONT Play the Organ.The saying"Marry in haste and repent at leisure is very appropriate"The finality is "Till death do us part"what you can do is to SEPARATE but Remarriage is out of the question You are only allowed 2 in one Flesh-ONE TIME.Otherwise it is the ugly word adult-ery.God says "it was not so from the beginning. Matt19"8-9.

so many say that they just know what Christ meant when he stated that verse to the Pharisee.

It makes me wonder, that we as Christians should try loving more instead of passing judgment.
We don't know the Heart as Christ does, and we don't know for sure truly what Christ meant.
I say this because, there are so many people who have divorced because of spousal abuse, adultry, abandonement, alcoholism, drugs, and many other life threatening reason.
Do we really believe Christ meant for those who suffered to remain like this and if divorced not marry again? We really need to pray about this. And seek God's face.
---ginger on 11/25/08

Wal Rev is correct. Also let us remembered what Jesus had to say about adultery in Matthew 5:27-28

" 27-Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:"

"28-But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart."

Now who wants to declare themselves absolutely free of the definition of adultery as spoken of by the Lord Jesus Christ??

It depends on the church doesn't it?

If people really want to get married, they can easily find a church that will do it even if other churches refuse.

Even the Catholic church can be bribed. They say they won't marry divorced people, but I have a friend who was divorced and the Catholic church "annuled" her marriage for a fee of $1000. She then got married.

Mr. Graham not budging, on scripture. Way to go.

GOD set pattern with his divorce. He also set the pattern with his marriage.
GOD being divorced should be a front page headliner,.

And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce, yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.
Jeremiah 3:7-9
---Trav on 11/20/08

The term christian and remarriage is in most cases adultery, idolatry and hypocrasy. With the exception of a spouses death, or a man who's wife has cheated on him, divorce and remarriage is a complete violation of the teachings of christ. And, a woman who separates from her husband for any reason.. must remain unmarried and pure, that is if she claims christ as lord and savior.

If we live in christ.. we do not partake in such an event, despite the worldly loss. Many will honor our lord with their lips but their hearts are far away. We know gods word on this.. it is not up for debate. I encourage anyone who is looking for answers to study scripture.

Many people misread the scriptures when it comes to this subject of marriage and divorce. In Mathew 5:32 Jesus said that divorce is permitted because of ery. Please understand according to this scripture when you divorce your spouse you cause her to commit ery. But if the spouse committed ery herself she caused her own ery. That is why it is permitted. Your spouse chose to enter in ery. Thus breaking your vows. You are allowed to remarry if you are the party (the one divorcing the guilty party). With all that said we must always try to reconcile.
---Rev_Gowans on 11/11/08

wow! A woman does not obey her husband. She may be submissive but obeying a husband does not mean she is obeying the Lord.
---jeff on 2/15/08

where is divorce permitted in scripture, Kenneth? Are you speaking of the OT because in the NT, Jesus answers the Pharisees by telling them that Moses permitted them to divorce their wifes because of the hardness of their hearts but that anyone who divorces his wife or husband forces them to committ adultery. What scripture are you referring to? Another example of how individual interpretation leads to wrong conclusions.
---janet on 2/13/08

Divorce is permitted in noted by others for two reasons...adultery or the unbeliever doesn't want to stay married. What has been misrepresented is that all Christians must remarry another Christian. This applies only to the she should be obeying the husband. I would pick a Christian woman FIRST, but, as long as the future wife agrees to obey..she will also be serving the Lord, by obeying a husband that obeys the Lord. .

From my understanding of Scripture, one can divorce but cannot remarry -- except for adultery. If the marriage did not work out, just separate and remain single. We can not keep marrying until one finally "sticks".

Christians are no different than non-Christians and, in many respects, weaker of character and belief since, so often, Christianity is the chosen salve when all else has failed.
---Jim on 7/14/07

That being said, it's not to be unexpected that many Christians would find reasons to leave their spouses since it is no different then when they left life in general to become Christians.

Let them divorce, remarry, avoid the hard choices and commitments which those in the world have to face. If they need an excuse, let them pick one. There's a million. And for the Christian with a dogeared Bible, a million more.

Kay, Matthew 5:32 and 19:9
19:9 "And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."

Note also that Mark 10:11 excludes the Fornication clause.

Galations 5:19 "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,..."

Fornications is not the same thing as adultery.
---lorra8574 on 5/12/07

1 Cor 5:1 "It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife."

This is fornication not simple adultery. This is a violation of Leviticus 18:8

"The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it [is] thy father's nakedness."

This is a form of incest in the eyes of the Jews and early Christians.

Yes..divorcees can remarry. Only one reason to divorce and that is: if one catches a spouse in adultery.According to the Word of God. You can remarry, the bible says, but only to someone who is a believer. We are not to marry an unbeliever if we are a believer. People are divorcing for any reason, including our pastors and leaders in the church but that does not make it right. We should please God in all that we do and not follow the traditions of man.
---Robyn on 5/11/07

Also women and men of God. we do not have to stay in abusive relationships, either. We are allowed to separate but we are not to remarry in a case like that. We have to stay separated or try to work things out with the spouse we married. Or if the spouse(male or female) dies, the marriage dissolves itself, releasing us to marry, again, a believer---only! We need to be equally yoked.

Wrong again, we read in Mt 19.9 'I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery'.

The verse does not state that one who re-marries after divorcing his wife for unfaithfulness commits adultery.

'from the beginning it was not so' you cant remarry. you may not have married mr right, but when you said 'i do' he became mr. right in God's eyes. (a covenant)

Not let me get you unconfused, (Smile) When the Bible says, "what God has joined together let not man put asunder," He is speaking of two dedicated Christians that get married in the Lord. If one of the two claimed to be a Christian and after ward you found he lied, he broke his marriage vows already, God did not join an nonchristian and a christian together. He doesn't do that.
When a man/woman breaks her vows that she /he made they have become unfaithful.

Now think about that, do you think God joins everyone that marries? Absolutely not!! God only joins those who are serving him.

If she is sinning if she divorces him then he did not sin to marry her. But if it was sin to marry her then it was not sin to divorce.
