Can I Remarry Due To Adultery
  
Ruth asked if she could remarry because her husband committed adultery. The answer is a simple Yes. Jesus, the Lord our Savior, said in Matthew 19:9: I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, EXCEPT for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery. Jesus does not require the wronged party to be tied to the adulterer/adulterous for the remainder of his/her life as rw believes. Romans 7:2-3 is the verse that was referenced.
If this were the case, you know that the Lord would have spoken in unequivocal terms as He always does because He is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33).

1 Cor. 7:10-11 refers to non-adulterous situations (see full text below). Because these passages do not apply to Ruths situation, she is free. You are right however that the Scriptures require her to marry a fellow believer if she does choose to remarry. 1 Corinthian 7:39).
The Apostle Paul also provides another freedom regarding Christians and marriage but it comes with a strict stipulation, too.

rw: Matthew 5:32 says, But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, EXCEPT for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery. and Matthew 19:9: I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, EXCEPT for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery.
The key words are marital unfaithfulness and apply to both men and women equally! So the person who does the divorcing and then remarries without the reason being the spouses infidelity, is an adulterer (and the new spouse), as is the divorced person who remarries (and the new spouse). Thats a total of 4 people who can be affected by the same sin. Yuck!

rw/carla: The Apostle Paul provided another freedom regarding Christians & marriage but it comes with a stipulation. 1 Corinthians 7:13-15: "13And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him. 14 For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy. 15 But if the unbeliever leaves, let him do so. A believing man or woman IS NOT BOUND in such circumstances, God has called us to live in peace. Not only can women initiate divorce, I believe that Christians who are not bound in this situation, are free to remarry.

Because so many of us ho claim to be Christians are ignorant of Gods Word, take it out of context or are straight up disobedient to it because we value our own opinions more, we are causing many saved to lose their very souls because we are placing undue yokes around their necks. We're also causing the lost to reject Christ out of hand because of wrong teaching! We have got to do better! All passages quoted here are taken from the NIV 1984.
