//Jesus prohibited divorce except for adultery, that included lying about ones virginity.

Laugh, I suppose you believe that the one you first copulated with has to be your mate? That the marriage bond is establised by a physical relation?

Seriously, if you have been separated from your wife for 3.5 years, you may re-marry however, the problems that originally cause the break should be examined in detail. Lawyers tell me that re-marriage to former wives generally does not work out.

Jesus prohibited divorce except for adultery, that included lying about ones virginity. The non adulterer could remarry. The adulterer, 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'. Matthew 19:9, 1Corinthians 7:27-28 allow remarriage. You violate Deuteronomy 24:1-4, Malachi 2:14-16, Matthew 5:31-32, by departing, but not divorcing.
Deuteronomy 22:17-19, 28-29, Proverbs 2:17 (forsaketh husband), Isaiah 54:4-8, Jeremiah 3:1, Matthew 19:3-12, Mark 10:2-12, Luke 16:18, 1Corinthians 6:15-16, 7:10-17, 27.

Sinse there has been no Adultery You are NOT PERMITTED to remarry. Matth 19 explains except for fornication been committed you will an adulterer, like wise if she marries again she will also be an Adulterer. You don't just leave each other and be married to whom you will. read the bible not false witnesses of the word all the answers are there when you read for education not out of want.

Go back and reread what Paul did say and not what you presupposed he said. When he said it was better to marry is talking about the Virgins not premarried couples. REad the word properly before you give advice we all make mistakes but ignorance of the word means your as guilty as the advice you give if your regecting the truth because you are in the same positon ignorant of the doctrine of marriage.
---Carla5754 on 12/31/07


The apostle Paul said it is better to marry, than to burn with lust for someone. So, the answer is yes, it is okay for you to remarry.

Robin a formal divorce is required.

Beyond that God's will for your life is involved, and if you're a Christian you don't need me to comment on that.

I am ignorant concerning the circumstances of your separation and so I cannot effectively comment on the possibility the marriage's salvation.

The answer however would be yes.
---Pharisee on 5/29/07


the bible says that God hates divorces. marriage is a sacred union between a man, wife and God. Its a God given institution that must not end till death. My question is, if we r abused, the other is alcoholic and has no time 4 the wife but his drinks, then what do the wife do? Does she put up with it till death do us part? I dont think I would like to be left in a situation like that. I know the bible says we can leave if adultery is committed but what about physical violence?

Absolutely no,with God all things are possible,His grace is sufficient in all things.If you marry another woman now that your wife is alive its adultry.All we need to do is to keep on believing God,praying always that there will be a divine intervention,and faithful is He that has promised He will not fail you.

no where does it say you can remarry because of divorce . Jesus said of divorce-from the beginning it was not so.
---r.w. on 10/21/06




you have to go back to your wife Robin to prevent her from commiting adultary, matthew5v32 other wise God will hold you accountable if she does (I believe in remarriage in the case of divorce as a result of adultary)
---susanna on 8/10/05


Not based on what it states in Matthew 5:32. While there is an "excuse" to divorce if adultery is the case, but there is no reason given to remarry. (The only reason given in Scripture is if the spouce dies - and I'll add, because of natural causes.) But, let me add, I've seen very successful marriages from Christians who have gotten divorced and remarried and gone on to serve the Lord!

We live in a world that say's we can do almost anything, but there are clear guidlines set out in the word that explains that God is not a lover of Divorce, however in (levit 18:20) under the law it is condemed and also under grace Matt 5 :28,32, matth 19, Mark 101:12, Rom 7:4, 1 Corin 7 . So the statement that the answer is yes according to the word is technically wrong advice. Hope this helps, love,

As long as I obey the speed limit, then that law has no claims against me. It is made for the lawbreaker, not for me. Just because it has no claims on me does NOT give me the right to break it without consequences. I am free to break it, but then it has claims on me. If dead to the law means it doesn't exist, then there is no standard or definition of sin--sin is transgression of the law. Then we are in real trouble--it is alright to kill, steal, commit adultery, lie, covet, have other gods, etc.
---Wayne on 7/23/05


I do not find the scriptures saying that separation without adultery leaves you free to remarry. Please share some texts. As for Paul meaning that the law is none existent for Christians seems strange in light of all his statements about how it is holy, just, good, etc.; how he would not have know what sin was without it. Dead to it seems much more to mean, not in debt to it, not under its condemnation. In other words it does not affect me.
---Wayne on 7/23/05


If there has been no Adultery, No you cannot re-marry, read Matt:19, 1Corin 7, Romans 7, mark, revelations, levit 11, The answer is not obviously yes, and anyone that preaches that you can despite no Adultery preaches another Gospel and is cursed. 1Timothy on preaching anything that is not written in the word of God by the apostle Paul.

Are you just separated or divorce? If you want to live under the law that Christ freed you from, then no. We have been made free from the law, by the blood of Christ. Paul states we are dead to the law. He also states it is better to marry than to sin.
---geraa7578 on 7/13/05


Nooooooo you can not! Marrying another WOULD be adultry. Paul is talking about your first marriage when he says it is better to marry !
JESUS SAYS:
"Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultry against her."
And if she divorces her husband and marries another man she commits adultry."

God puts it plain and simple.
