I do not know. Disobedience is never an option. God, I do know, will give you grace, which is His power, to stay if that is His will. Talk to Him if you truly know Him. He might just help you to leave the situation. But to divorce on any grounds other than adultry is against God's word. However, God also wants His people to live in peace with Him and man. So stay in prayer. Another thing: Living in peace never means giving up your rights. Never means putting up with injustice. I wanted to make this clear. If you have peace with God you will have peace with man. And it is an inside peace....Sometimes God may want you to confront issues.

Okay there is one unpardonable sin but that hardly comes into question if one is going to sin and delve right back into the vomit they have just left.

2Pe 2:1
NOTE:
2Pe 2:22
But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog [is] turned to his own vomit again, and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

I can't really improve on the Carla and Glenn's research but to answer your question YES God will forgive you.
May I suggest however that your question is really an inquiry on the consequences of divorce. You've already made up your mind in your heart what you are going to do so don't play games with God.
May I remind you there are always consequences for doing anything God HATES.
Reframe the question. "God hates what I desire to do, will I do it anyway?

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.
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, 27-28.

1Corinthians 7:15. If the unbeliever departs, the Christian can remarry because the marriage was not 'in the Lord'.

1Cr 7:15
But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such [cases]: but God hath called us to peace.

Mat 19:9

[Except] fornication

concluded:nothing added nothing taken away!

1Cr 7:39 The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth, but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will, only in the Lord.


1Cr 7:40
But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.

1Cr 7:10
And unto the married I command, [yet] not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from [her] husband:

1Cr 7:11
But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to [her] husband: and let not the husband put away [his] wife.

1Cr 7:24
Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God.

To back up that the ruling is to remain single Romans deals with the situation concerning being married to another man period.

Rom 7:2
For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to [her] husband so long as he liveth, but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of [her] husband.

Rom 7:3
So then if, while [her] husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law, so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

You should make a go of your marriage but if you are unhappy and have no peace remember the clause is to separate but leave room for reconciliation. Remain unmarried 1 Corinthians 7.

Victoria....Can God forgive me if I go out and commit adultery over and over? When we do something agaisnt God's will on purpose, we better watch it.

Can God forgive you? This can be a *decoy* issue, to make you "lazy" > our Apostle Paul gives > "But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried.

. . . or be reconciled to her husband." (in 1 Corinthians 7:11).

*If* you are both Christians and split . . . of course, then you two can get in prayer with God, and He will be so loving with you (Romans 5:5), no matter how you have messed up, and challenge you that this is how He expects you also to be merciful and forgiving with each other > Ephesians 4:31-5:2. And now you are encouraged to try *this* out together. There is a "reason" He says to love "with longsuffering" (o: (Ephesians 4:2)

Yes, God will forgive, but are you sure you have exhausted everything? Marital therapy? Prayer? I tried everything, and read "The Power of a Praying Wife" and salvaged three years before my ex gave up for good.
