Why is divorce not allowed in the Catholic Faith?

This is not another question aimed at Catholic bashing. This is a very serious issue where both the partners agree to divorce and cannot live together but the Catholic Church does not allow divorce. I would like to know what exactly is the aim of the Catholic Church in formulating such rules which make life miserable to some couples.

    I may be wrong on this, but I believe that it isn't completely banned for children from a subsequent civil marriage to be baptized in the Church. Unwed parents can have their children baptized so wouldn't this fit similarly?

    ALL christian communities/churches use the Bible (New Testament) to "justify" the rules. So does Judaism. The islamic communities use the Koran. The bible and the Koran have many of the same "justifications".
