There are things Satan loves to do. Not all love has us doing what is right. Betrayal is an act of hate.
This said, how would I do at being faithful? I could see I might not be emotionally faithful to a woman I loved, and so I decided I should not marry her, unless I get corrected and healed by God, first.

Why not allow God to give you the answer. I also would like to know are you testing God with such a question. I will give you a clue. God does not appreciate being tested. I shall give you one more, God hates sexual sins.

Matt 19 :8,9 - Grounds for divorce.
1 Cor 6: 9-11 - 'Fornicators cannot inherit the Kingdom of God,....but you have been washed clean (serious issue, but can gain God's forgiveness if you are genuinely repentant)
2 Chron 6:29-30 God reads the hearts of those who pray to him ernestly
James 4:8 - Draw close to Him and He will draw close to you-
Proverbs 16:5 you must be humble in spirit,(especially in this matter) proud hearts are detestable to God.

God is the reader of hearts. Only He knows your intentions and your situation. He hates divorce but God is a loving God. It is best to try to work things out with your mate before you divorce, but there are scriptural grounds, such as adultery, for divorce. Search your heart to see if your decision is well thought out or is rash. Does it fit into God's will? He understands you and is the reader of your heart. Pray earnestly to Him for guidance.

There are no scriptures to show you to reinforce the notion that your plans are the correct course of action, because they are against scripture. God HATES divorce as well as lust. Should you follow through with this action, you will be at HIS mercy and that is all that can be said. One more thing is that you are not alone. I will pray for you.

you already have the scriptures - your asking for absolution
grace is not a license to sin
Your sin is against God
Go research David - He was the apple of God's eye, but I wouldn't want to trade places with him
Whatever restitution you can make to your former family might help assuage your conscience

(2.) Another point is, if the person, didnt have enough light/knowledge at the time of the remarriage, then God will take that into consideration. Many had enough knowledge, yet still went on and re-married, God will not accept that. I hope this helps.

The world has redefinied love. It has been replaced by lust!
---Susie on 9/2/07|
You should say, fall in lust, because that is what it really is. God is very exacting, doesn't mix with deceit at all. Forming opinions, in a way to justify one failing God, won't work. God's people are a separated people, who don't compromise with the devil, period. Many Christians compromise with the enemy, by doing that, they are selling their own souls to him. No disobedience/sin is allowed in God's Heaven, not even a trace, but many have fooled themselves (Matthew 15:15-20)(Hebrews 6:7,8).

Jesus says "all sins will be forgiven the sons of men', in Mark 3:28, but not blaspheming the Holy Spirit (next verse). But you must forsake the sin >
"He who covers his sins will not prosper,
But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy."
Another thing > if you help cause "someone else" to sin with you, how can you really love her?

are you a christian? if so how can you justify this? to paraphrase "if we don't walk in the light we have then even that light will be taken away" i feel sorry for you.
---wayne on 8/30/07|
God might forgive you. It depends on how long you've had these feelings for this other person. I'm sure there is lust for this other person, and that is a sin against God. People like this is only thinking of themselves, selfish. Don't care what it will do to their spouse. It is your mess, you clean it up.

Jesus said all sins are forgivable except to blasphemy the Holy Spirit. One thing I learned years ago as a young woman is if you think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, you might just end up with crab grass.

If you've been married three or four times already, it's easy to fall into this type of pattern. If you hurriedly married your current mate out of desperation, and then found out it is a huge disappointment, easy to fall into temptation. Is there a large age gap, that only adds to the desire to look elsewhere.
Mod is correct, go looking for greener pastures, you may expire before you reach the greener grass. What if you don't get time to repent?

It does sound like you've already to made your decision to leave. Are you having an adulterous affair now? Better ask forgiveness before the other shoe drops.
No guarantees this person will be interested in you when you are divorced. They may move on.

What sort of love would make me able to divorce my wife for another woman? Consider how much this could hurt her...and our children, and dismay relatives and friends. I think of how Saddam Hussein might have loved things he was able to do at the expense of hurting and killing all those people.
That's an act of hate, not of love, to betray my own wife. Hate and cruelty will not get us into Heaven. "Love does no harm to a neighbor" (in Romans 13:10).
