    Do you believe in divorce and re-marriage?

    The bible tells us that, What God has joined together let no man put asunder.  Whosoever putteth away his wife and marry another commit adultery, and if anybody marry her also commit adultery. What say you?

    Personally I see marrage as a binding action, a promise or contract if you will. Once you sign or commit yourself to your partner nothing should be able to break this bind, doing so may not be illegal in the eyes of the law but it sure is in the eyes of God.

      Then do you think persons who are involved in divorce and remarriage commit an adultery and is constantly involved in the act has long as they are sleeping together.

      That's pretty boring isn't it?  There's no point in getting into bed with someone if all you're going to do is sleep.

    I see no issue with it! I think that sometimes there are no other options but divorce and those people should not be stuck being single forever. As an atheist I struggle to see how people want to believe in something that would expect a person to be alone forever because of a divorce.

      Thank you for your opinion. I see where you say your an atheist so you wouldn't really see anything wrong with that.  But for Christians it is different as we follow and believe the teachings of Jesus Christ in the Holy Bible.

      Overall I find it heartbreaking and sad that anyone would find it wrong or choose to believe a woman who has been abused by her husband shouldn't be able to remarry. Why cause her more misery in her life?

    @Peeples don't get me wrong I am not saying one should stay in an abusive marriage.  My question is directed on beliefs as the bible states about divorce and remarriage so can we stay on that path..

      As question is, that's a part of the answer.
      Since I know God loves us and wants us to be happy, I can't see Him wanting us to stay in an unhappy marriage. At that point, I'd question if that marriage was truly put together by Him

    Divorce is allowed due to adultery. Couples that can't get along can seperate. One of them will then find another mate. (adultery by the bible) freeing the other to remarry.

    Deuteronomy 24:1-4, KJV 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. And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife. And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife; Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the LORD: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.

    God does not want it to happen, but if the husband or wife commits adultery and the victim of the act can not over come the pain, it is okay. It should NEVER be used as an escape goat.

    Speak with God, He will guild your heart.

    when the the couple are not happy with their marriage after several tries, then Divorce can be a solution, and when somebody loves you and ready to marry you even if you are a divorcée, then where is the problem exist, I guess when somebody is getting happy due to Divorce/re-marriage there is no need to panic just because Bible restricts it.

    Well I certainly wouldn't want to base my opinion on an unconditional acceptance of the authority of some bronze-age tribal regulations such as you refer to in the collection of documents known as 'the bible'.

    It seems clear enough to me that marriage is a social institution invented by people and has had and continues to have a variety of forms and functions in different cultures around the world. In that sense, there simply isn't one single institution of marriage.

    In most cases, marital notions are rooted in ancient history and really relate to laws about the transfer of property (and a woman in those primitive cultures was considered the property of her husband) and ensuring that the tribe was kept in reasonable genetic health.

    I don't really see the hand of the divine in any of that. Consequently, marriage can and will be re-invented according to the current social needs and changing ideas. We have certainly come a long way in improving our moral fabric and ethical structures since the rather limited and horrid regulations of the biblical peoples with their inherent and primitive assumptions about property, women and slavery.

    Jesus seems a bit confused about the issue of divorce, in any case. In Mark 10:11 and Luke 16:18 he condemns all divorce but in Matthew 5: 32 he says it's okay for a man to divorce his wife if she commits adultery.

      Whoever minused this answer should realize that the hubpages rules advise plussing and minussing to be done on the basis of whether or not a comment is an intelligent contribution to the discussion not on whether you personally like it or not.

    i say it's a bunch of malarcky. you marry someone, it doesn't work out so you divorce and if you meet someone else, you get married again. what some myth supposedly said doesn't matter.
