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'. Please read Matthew 5:31-32, 19:3-12, Mark 10:2-12, Luke 16:18. Both Matthew 19:9 and 1Corinthians 7:27-28 allow remarriage.
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, 1Corinthians 6:15-16, 7:10-17, 27.

The scripture says that God did not like divorces, but it also says God does not like sin of any sort. But mostly it says God forgives--forgive yourself, God has if you have asked, and live for him free of sin even to dating Christian women.

Why not? You are professing Christianity now and those are the type women God says to be yoked with. Happy dating. It is a lot different from dating women in the world.Be prepared.

Dan, you're the man. 70 years young and cruising for chicks. A nice Mrs. Backfire (Doubtfire) type or are you looking for a young nanny.
Regardless, there Dan, be upfront with the ladies. Tell them you're looking for a friend and not a wife; so they don't get their hopes up for marriage. Spaghetti dinners and a matinee. P.S. You don't twirl your hair into a pile of spaghetti do you. The chicks don't care if you're bald. Just be yourself.

old things passed away and all things made new. Past sins are forgiven. You are a new creature in Christ. You have no past. You are born again. Recognize that God hates divorce and live your life now to please him. He wants you to use wisdom in relationships. And seek Him about making such major decisions as who to date and especially who to marry. If you do you can avoid being divorced again. Date true Christian women living according to God's word and not the dictates of their flesh.

If you were saved AFTER these things happened then what God will look upon is how you live your life as a christian. All things which happened BEFORE you were saved God will not hold you accountable for. When we come before Christ when we leave this world He will look at and judge us for how we lived as Christians. So, yes. Your past is part of your testimony. If the devil trys to remind you of your past, just remind him of his

Rebecca, RE-read my Post I encouraged him to go to church (get off the bandwagon)
while you encourage others to put their past relationship behind them and return to SIN, I encourage Math 19:11 continuing where it concludes the fact that both will be in Adultery if marry without the cause of fornication.
VS 11 If you have not received this ask yourSELF why? It is written in Plain BLACK/WHITE.

Dan::Friend,I do understand the need for Companionship,are your other wives alive?If so Marriage is not the answer. join an old folks club or even talk up some old ladies in your church;widows are experiencing the same pangs of Lonliness.I also have lots of youngladies whom I respect & they treat me like dad Grandpa. live the rest of your life spreading His love amongst those who need it. Marriage is NOT the answer to your happiness. Debbie in Ohio is telling you about the sameI think

Dan: Don't worry about what others say about divorce and how you can't remarry after one. Your divorce is in the past, therefore under the blood. Carla: he said that he wasn't looking for marriage now, he just wants a female compainion to have dinner with and sit with in church. Do you not read the replies before you make your response? Please read the responses from the person who asked the question, then make your response.

You can join in the elderly group meals at a local center or Church were you can be good company for dinner. However If your intentions is to just date a woman for marriage you had better make sure prior to being saved your marriage was not resolved cause you committed Adultery. If it did I would strongly encourage you to read Corinthians 7, Math 19, Romans 7, Mark 10 Thoroughly!
---Carla5754 on 5/13/07

Dan there is nothing wrong with want a female friend to share your time with. I lost my mom in 2001. My dad didn't know what to do, for they was married for 40 years. He was lonely, so he started dating. At first I got upset, because I haven't seen dad with any woman other than mom. but I came to realize that he needed someone and he was lonely. I'm glad he found someone to share his time with. He's happy.

Being that I am over 70 years old, I thought it would be nice to have a female companion to go out to dinner with and sit with in church. I have no desire to get married. Just want a friend.
---Dan on 5/12/07

If you want to live for Jesus, why are you looking to spend your time dating women? How is the Lord served by you engaging in such an activity?
---ralph7477 on 5/11/07

Emcee: Perhaps his prior marriages failed simply because the Lord was not the foundation of them!
---Debbie_in_Ohio on 5/11/07

This man stated in so many words that he would like to date a Christian woman. He didn't say anything about marriage. Right now marriage should be the last thing on his mind. Dan: Now that you are one of God's children, you can pray to God to send you a good woman. Whom you can learn about God together. When I came to Christ, (I was married) but I prayed that God would put a calling upon our lives that we can grow together in Christ and become as one. He has answered my prayer.

Dan:: You did say you were saved !!!& twice divorced --would it not be a better idea to explore why two attempts failed before trying a third time, otherwise what are you saved from.?

Dan, I would concentrate more on growing in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, than whether or not I can date "christian" women. Learn about God and Jesus Christ, and fall in love with them, then go from there. Find your all in God and you may be surprised with what you gain in addition.
---tommy3007 on 5/10/07

Praise God that you got saved. Yes you are free to marry a Christian woman now. Don't let anyone tell you any different.
