Remarry Because Of His Ex-Wife
Is my marriage valid? I married a man who was divorced and he cheated on his ex-wife. Being in this "marriage", I realized I was committing adultery, according to the Scripture. Am I free to remarry since I might never have been in an invalid marriage before God?
Moderator - Repent if you were the person that cheated against the ex-wife, but yes you are married now. Why would you be thinking about remarriage if you are married? Are you committing adultery?

I think I understand your point. I believe it's a valid one.
If his first wife did not cheat on him,
he had no grounds for divorcing her under God's law,
so he was still married to her according to scripture.
Here is another scripture to consider:
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.

You are not responsible for your husbands actions against his ex, unless you are the woman he was cheating with on his ex. If not then you are excused & God will not bring punishment upon you. As for your husband that is a different story.

Sounds like you have started a very bad habit! Divorce and remarriage is not a good habit for a Christian to get into.

\\As you know Cluny a same-sex marriage isn't valid before God\\
Please quote book, chapter, and verse for this.

You say you realized you were committing adultery by being married the first time "according to the Scripture".
Please cite the scripture that shows this.
This sounds like a valiant attempt to find a loophole so you can pursue your own interests in good conscience. Do you think God is interested in playing games or are you seriously looking to do His will?

let's get clear!
Your husband was already divorced.
Then you married him.
And now you are divorced from him?
You seem to suggest that because your husband (now ex) was already divorced, your marriage to him was invalid?
So you are saying that although you were committing adultery whilst you were "married" to him, you weren't really married, nd you were not his wife?
So you now think that you can marry someone and it will be as if it is your first marriage?

It depends on why you and your husband were divorced. Was there adultery by your husband, physical abuse or abandonment as the cause of the divorce? If yes, you can remarry, otherwise you can't remarry if you are a Christian.

Lets clarify: I am NOT in this marriage anymore. "Divorced since 2006". It has nothing to do with remarrying because of ex-wife. I dont understand why the question was taken that way, anyways...
Since I am not married and I maybe was not living in a valid godly marriage, would I be free to marry again? I understand now that I was an adulterous not a wife.
Please can someone help me to understand my situation.

As you know Cluny a same-sex marriage isn't valid before God. However, to indirectly imply that the blogger can now divorce her husband and pursue another is an unbiblical concept. Sounds like the blogger is considering an affair?

Does this mean that if a same-sex couple gets married in a civil ceremony, all they have to do is repent, and then they are married now?
