Can I Remarry My Husband

I have been divorced from my x husband a long time. But have recently been in contact with each other and have found out he still loves me and wants us to be together again. I also still love him and would love to be his wife again. Can we do this?

First: you need to discuss what caused the divorce. The same problem may still be there and come to cause you to divorce again should you remarry. Keep in mind that "love" is only one part of marriage, you must, "like" the person too.

Second, if either of you have married since the divorce, you can NOT remarry.

Matthew 5:32 (NASB77)
I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the cause of unchastity, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Willa, those laws in the Old Testament only apply to Jews. Perhaps Debra is Jewish. Then she should take your advice. Otherwise, not necessary. :)

Not according to God's Word. The Bible says that if you leave them and go and marry someone else and then decide you want them back, the Bible says this is an abomination in God's eye. So, no you are not too. Read Duet.24:1-4

I believe if you looked up the statistics on how many people that have divorced and reconciled, you would find that most of them also fail the second time around.

Be careful and ask what problems caused the breakup of the marriage in the first place.

Were other people intimately involved? These kind of things are very hard to overlook and the trust between partners will never be the same.

I haven't been divorced or remarried.

How many times have you and he been married to other people in the years since the divorce?

Debra, that's great. Go for it!

I believe that God does want you to forgive each other and get a reconciliation.

However, I also believe that there are some important questions that you both need to ask yourselves first:

Do BOTH of you know Jesus Christ as Lord?

Why did the two of you get married and then divorced?

Are there problems/issues that need to be resolved?

Etc. Etc.

Most psychologists, and counselors, would agree that unless any under-lying problems are resolved, you would just be repeating what has already happened.

The Bible says God hates divorce.

This means He loves couples to reconcile.

But make sure you work on the issues that caused trouble and led to the break-up BEFORE you remarry.

(I assume you are both free to remarry each other.)

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I would say so. I consider that if you were Christians, God never has considered you to be divorced. Love will win out (c:
