Where is the list of the grounds for divorce in the Bible.


I know somewhere there is an old list that goes right through all the "legal" grounds in a list form for why there can be a legitimate divorce.

    The only reason is for fornication, not adultery since adultery can just be lust in the heart but fornication is the very sex act. Men was not allowed to sleep with just anyone

    Fornication involves married and unmarried. The reason it does not say adultery is a reason for divorce because it has two definitions

    When a married person has sex with a third party, and when they lust in the heart. Fornication brings divorce

    This was the best that I could do also. And my horror is that the bible really only allows a man to divorce a wife. And the wife has no cause.
