    Does Matthew 19:9 and Romans 7:2-3 say the same thing? If so please, explain what do they mean?

    For some reason there is a discrepancy with the chapters that they are different religion or lack of knowledge. I was taught that Jehovah shows no favoritism and when I read the bible, I feel like certain sections is not just for me. IJN

    Matt. 19:9 explains that the only grounds for divorce is sexual immorality of your spouse. Romans 7:2 states that marriage is for life. The Bible doesn't really have any discrepancies. The books of the Bible are written by different authors who had different perspectives and different ways of remembering. Also, the Bible has been translated and retranslated over and over. Furthermore, the social mores, folkways, and taboos were much different than ours and that makes some of the Bible difficult to understand.

      What I received was that when we get divorce because of fornication that we can not be or marry anyone else unless our suppose is dead. Is that correct?

    In both instances divorce or separation is based upon what is going on with the (man). Matthew 19:9 specifically talks about divorce while Romans also talks about the death of the husband.
    Essentially only the man/husband can initiate divorce in the bible.
    Deuteronomy 24:1
    "When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour {in his eyes}, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then {let him write her a bill of divorcement}, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house."
    Another verse that illustrates the men's right to free themselves from women.
    Proverbs 21:19
    "Better to dwell in the wilderness, Than with a contentious and angry woman."
    Another interesting point in the bible is men were allowed to have multiple wives. King Solomon is said to have had 700 wives and 300 concubines.
    Can you imagine a woman with 700 husbands and 300 "boy toys"?
    Colossians 3:18
    "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord."
    With a divorce rate in the U.S. that hovers around 50%, numerous "sexless marriages" and couples who are "emotionally divorced" clearly illustrate marriage is no piece of cake!
    It's been reported in the U.S. that (women) initiate 66% or 2/3rds of all divorce filings! Some have speculated the biggest reason for this when compared to women in the 1950s era is women today have more financial independence. They have more college degrees, better career opportunities, and higher incomes.
    The more "options" one has the less crap they will put up with!
    Having said that I believe there are 3 main reasons for divorce.
    1. Chose the wrong mate. (Don't share same values or want same things)
    No amount of communication or work can overcome being with someone who simply does not want what you want!
    Like attracts like and opposites attract divorce attorneys!
    2. Got married for the wrong reasons.
    There was an unplanned pregnancy, someone had an "age goal", all of their friends were married, a person was about to have a military deployment, he/she had money, or an "ultimatum" was given.
    A marriage based upon circumstances is likely to fail!
    3. Over time they stopped nurturing the marriage and fell out of love.
    There is no neutral! Couples either "grow together" or "grow part".
    Note: It's easier to maintain a fire than it is to reignite a spark!
