    Marliza dear sister, How are you? It's Brother Dave. 

    If we go back into the Bible, back to the time when God was issuing His Commandments, and His rules and regulations for life, to the Hebrew tribes, God makes it perfectly clear that He does not condone divorce.

    God tells the people that there is one and only one reason that He will permit it, that being infidelity, being caught committing adultery and there would have to be witnesses to this act. God said also that this was punishable by stoning to death the one caught committing adultery.

    This is evident and backed up in the New Testament story of the woman who was to be stoned by the towns-people, and Jesus challenge to the people; "Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone.

    No God doesn't
    Matthew 5:32
    But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
