Can You Marry Twice

Can God forgive you for getting a divorce for reasons other than adultery? I have been divorced twice. I am remarried and I feel sure he's the one that was meant for me. I have asked for forgiveness but still feel a void in my relationship with God and I wonder if that is the reason.

Jhn 14:18 I will not leave you orphans, I will come to you.
---micha9344 on 5/20/15

Key phrase: "Leave you Orphans".
Lam_5:3 We are orphans and fatherless, our mothers are as widows.
Lam 5:20 Wherefore dost thou forget us for ever, and forsake us so long time?
Lam 5:21 Turn thou us unto thee, O LORD, we shall be turned, renew our days as of old.
Rom_9:4 Who are Israelites, to whom pertaineth the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service of God, and the promises,
Gal_4:5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

12 Sons composed the entire House of Israel that was under the Law.

I remember the Pope's comment, but it is not what Elliott is claiming.

What more needs to be said. He said just enough.
There is never room in 125 words to post everything. It is understood here that all one has to do is Google a key phrase or word.
You post it...he's your dope pope.
He'll never be mine. I repeat, neva-eva.

You are going to feel a void regardless. But of divorce and marrying again, the Bible is clear that it is adultery for a man to marry a divorced woman. However, there is no command against you returning to your last husband. Nor is there a command against you having children with your last husband. I do not think you should marry again and since you have difficulty living with men, don't. Just return to your last husband and ask to have kids through him. Then your needs are met.

Trav, THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! THANK YOU for posting your sources!

But you didn't complete my talking point on crazy lies.
Priests and Nuns are not trying to get annulments.
There are problems with EVERY Religions, Countries, Societies and Families.

Pope Francis says the theories of evolution and the Big Bang are real, God did not wave a magic wand to create the universe.---Trav on 5/18/15

But, that one you must post Pope Francis WHOLE statement. Because I believe he said, even if the world was started by the 'big bang' and continued by evolution it all had to be started by God.

So yes, God did use a magic wand as you put it, to create the world.
Because exposition doesn't ignite from NOTHING.

\\One was due to emotional and physical abuse and the other was because he did not take an interest in his family and was mean to my son from my first marriage.\\

Neither of these are Biblical grounds for remarriage after divorce.

---Cluny on 5/16/15


My ex wife decided to divorce me because she was too depressed (she was a person who was often clinically depressed) and did not want to be with me. In the end, after some disagreements, I accepted it, though I did not want to.

Later I remarried, though I am not sure if remarrying was actually good.

Your comments?

My friend had no reason to lie. He wasn't in the mood to defend the church of his discouragements.--Trav on 5/15/15

But you had to add this comment for what reason:

Sorry, that's why I said nice try. Because you didn't end you post with your friend comment, but one of your own.

I heard so many crazy stories from people who left the Catholic Church.
All lies.
Such as: The Nuns are for the Priest's pleasure. That's why Nuns ran orphanages around the world because the kids were REALLY their own kids (Priests and Nuns)

Sorry again.

Nice try Trav, ...
News flash: Priests CAN'T annulled marriages. Nope
ONLY BISHOPS
---Nicole_Lacey on 5/14/15

Whoa, whoa, woe. Didn't know. Even more interesting now.
Wasn't a try, it was a truth.
Truth / light doesn't try it succeeds...every time against a "darkness". You noticed that just a little illuminates a huge area?
(Sounds like the priest is gonna give the Bishop a split:)
Wonder what (off the record silent cannon) law they have between them on dividing the unholy spoils.
Now would this be down the middle or a 60/40 thing? Bet da pope don't get a nickel. Maybe he does?

My friend had no reason to lie. He wasn't in the mood to defend the church of his discouragements.

Nice try Trav, but first find out the rules (cannon law) before distorting them.

News flash: Priests CAN'T annulled marriages. Nope
ONLY BISHOPS

Rod4him, I meant if your now spouse was married before and failed to tell you. Yes, even if it has been 40 years, you are not married. He is married but not to you.

Or Gunshot marriage. Those types of incident.

But, I see you point about no one is ready. Thoses can't get divorce.
---Nicole_Lacey on 5/14/15


Sounds like Catholic teaching. I have a friend/acquaintance who got a Catholic wedding annulled after about 40 years...
---Rod4Him on 5/13/15

A Catholic work friend from Chicago told me that his Catholic priest would allow and approve a divorce, for $10,000.00.
Probably more now that poser is gone.
Wonder what reverend wrong charges there?

The vows used to be for better or worse.
Defining worse is hard and personal. I have no answer either.
$10,000.00 was a Catholic definition of price/cost of release in the above case.

//Not having full consent of knowing what commitment you are getting into can as well make your 1st marriage invalid.//

Sounds like Catholic teaching. I have a friend/acquaintance who got a Catholic wedding annulled after about 40 years...I guess he didn't know what he was getting into. How many people know what they are getting into when they get married? ...not a one!

For what it's worth, I don't think absolute thinking in marriage and divorce issues are as cut and dry as some seem to think... I know what I think isn't worth much...:-)
---Rod4Him on 5/13/15


Only focus on the first marriage because the 2nd one doesn't count.

If your 1st husband was married prior to your 1st marriage would make it invalid. So, this marriage you are in now is valid.
But, remember God is Mercy itself. He is more forgiving than you.

Find a legal specialist to help you determine if your 1st marriage can be annulled.

Plus, your religious beliefs plays a big part of your marriage.

Not having full consent of knowing what commitment you are getting into can as well make your 1st marriage invalid.
Be at peace and investigate.

I just read an awesome book by Myles Munroe titled Single, Married, Seperated and life after divorce. It has helped me to understand something I suspect that every christians feels once we turn our lives over to the Lord. We feel a singleness and desire to know God, and know everything there is about him. Then through life we slack off from the way we started. I say that to say this. Be encourage seek God. Scripture - Phillippians 4:19
Matthew 6:14-15
1 John 1:9
I pray these will minister to you according to the will and grace of our Lord Jesus.
---1Usmcmarine on 4/26/11


you are committing the acts of adultery everyday as long as your first and second husbands are alive, to make right with God you need to separate from this man like in Ezra 10:10-11 and live alone For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife, you have taken two women's husbands. If the other two men are dead then your free from the sin of adultery, if not separate and repent, better to live without man than God
---Gareth_Rodway on 4/25/11


No one is casting stones when they tell you that if your conscience is not free that is because you married and it was not permitted for you to do so. Matt 19: 9 tells you a woman is not in the equation for remarriage and it may just be because that's the way God planned things in terms of Eve sinning before Adam and the rank we fall in, I can see no other reason more than God has a plan and who are we to argue if he said we should remain single then stay single we must.
No stones just plain and simple bible truth. everyone has sin only Christ can forgive, but we need to back out of the sin we caused first or after, we cannot remain in it, or or salvation is in vein.
---Carla on 4/22/11


If you got divorced for other than adultery and you are remarried*, then you are living in adultery. How is God going to forgive you when you contiue to live in adultery.

God has great mercy on us and us forgiving. The problem you have with a void is guilt. You feel you have disobeyed God, which you did. I think also it depends on the circumstances that brought it about. Forgiveness from God is not given without repentance. I believe if you are the one who initiated the divorce that asking forgiveness from the others would give you freedom.
---willa5568 on 4/20/11


Yes you can remarry. Truth is a second marriage is harder, there are consequences that will come from your first marriage, but you are under grace as well. Christians are people of the second chance Jesus was.
Those without sin cast the first stone.
---Scott on 4/18/11


A confession: I am also married twice, and now I feel guilty about it.....

My first wife left me due to depression, though she had not cheated on me after marriage (though I found out she had before we were married, but I do not know if that is a reason).

I larter remarried, but now I am in a difficult position

I have a long-running suspicion that remarriage was not proper, but divorce is also not correct

What should I do?
---Peter on 4/5/11


We can all tell you to do this and do that according the bible..but we tend to lead to our own understanding.I know that God forgives all sins.(except one)..that is the gift of repentance through salvation.i wish you and your marriage the best.God forgives.but not forgiving yourself you have not accepted his forgiveness..because you are questioning yourself and your actions and whether you are forgiven or not.once you ask for forgiveness leave it at the foot of his throne and allow him to cast this to debts of the sea and remember your sins no more..Cast your burdens upon him...and allow him to give you peace..peace in your life..w/out peace you have no life at all..stop letting this constantly eat at you...You are forgiven..God bless you...

(I.)miche3348 , Dear one, it depends on how much light of the Scriptures that you had at the time of your re-marriage. God is just, some have been taught wrong, some didn't have enough of the light in regard to God's Truth at the time of their re-marriage, God will take that into consideration in His perfect judgment (without being a respecter of persons)every case is different, but you must be upfront with God and yourself, honestly asking God for wisdom, for the answer...
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/25/06


(II.)Miche3348, Did you have"enough of light" in regard to God's Truth, concerning this when you remarried? Were you aware enough that adultery/death are the only conditions for re-marriage? Did you feel apprehensive, that you were going against God's will? If you knew these things and still remarried, you are in error, you need to leave that person, one can't repent and still remain in that error,that would be hypocrisy and you would put yourself in bondage. I will pray for you.

You have sinned and have repented. A far as I can read, you are also forgiven. Just accept that fact and quit receiving condemnation fromt those who still want you to be guilty. Believe what the Word says and accept your forgiveness.

greetings,for miche,be of good cheer.considering that we have never before lived in the flesh,this life is a learning experience.God knows this.it is man who does not forgive their brothers and sisters.it is God who forgives us when we fail to get it right,considering no prior lifetime to gain life experiences.the void may be the rejection of unforgivers.the true objective is to continue onward and upward.in regards to marital relationships consider mary m. and who she walked with.
---earl on 10/23/06


God hates divorce, and marriage is a sacred institution not to be taken lightly. Yes, besides adultery, infidelity and proven abandonment are also grounds. For example, if your spouse decides to be a devout Satan-worshipper, then that would be diametrically opposed to your Christian mores and it would be sacrilegious to remain one flesh with him. And, if he leaves you, and you know that he is never returning, that is abandonment, and you are permitted to divorce.

When I feel a void or a distance from God,it is ususally because I feel ashamed of something I have done. However, it is always important to know that we can Not trust feelings. Feel alone, not true, fact is we are never alone. Feel worthless, not true, the Bible shows us how precious we are. Feelings, yes they are real but not reliable.
---mary on 10/22/06


i read a whole lot of ear tickling interpretations here. where exactly does it say it's ok to remarry? the Bible says if you remarry you're an adulterer,and the one who marries the divorcee. Jesus said of divorce-from the beginning it was not so, but Moses let then get divorces cause of the hardness of their hearts. i'm not saying divorce the one you are with, but when you got married the first time, he may not have been mr right, when you said 'i do' he BECAME mr right. this is all the result of sin
---r.w. on 10/22/06


If you have realy repented for divorcing your former husbandsm the void you are experiancing is unlikly to stem from your divorcing. You might concider repenting if you have not already done so, for marrying the wrong men in the first place. I thank God now that he has bought the right man to you.could you have a problem with forgiving yourself? I also think that you should talk to and pray with your husband about this issue, after all he should be your best friend.
---susanna on 7/26/05


Dear Miche,
Your problem is not your divorce, but your problem is, you don't believe in forgiveness! You asked for forgiveness. What did Jesus say about that? If you don't believe that you make Jesus a liar. Your sins are thrown in the dept of the see, because you asked forgiveness in the name of Jesus. Just trust what Jesus said!

In the bible when they talk about only adultery being a reason. you have to understand that people were put to death for many things that is forgiven to day leaving the hurt partner a widow/widower. thus leaving them to marry again.the fact that this is your 3rd marriage, says that some thing is going on in your life beyond spiritual stuff. look at your past, do you have trouble with relationships? how is your relationship with God? bible, prayer, followship, how close are you trying to be to God?

God himself hates putting away. In as much as I agree that God do forgive sins, yet I do not think we have the right to play down on his words. He regards his Word more than his name. I do not personaly agree to divorce.The Bible says that it is bcos of the hardness of our heart that Moses permitted it in the old testament but now if the Love of God truly dwells within us we will not have a reason to do that. However, it still takes two to be together and if not we are advised to remain unmarried.

Make sure you're not unequally yoked, no matter how you feel. There's only one 'unpardonable' sin, and it's not about marriage or remarriage, if indeed you are sinning. Are you feeding your 'inner man' by reading God's Word, how is your prayer life or church fellowship? Your answers may be found in these scriptures, James 1:5, I Jn.1:1>10, 3:18>24. Kathryn Kuhlman's "Daughter Of Destiny" may also be of help to you. Shalom.

This is a question that you need to seek Him only about, because accepting advice from other believers will confuse you. You didn't say if your marriages were before or after salvation.
