Matthew 5:32b …and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.
(See also Matthew 19:9)
If your wife was previously divorced, you’re in a perpetual state of adultery.
I’m not sure what to recommend to those in this situation. Please don’t attempt to divorce your wife to free yourself from this sin. We’ll show later that God hates divorce (which could be also considered a sin). This is truly being between a rock and a hard place.
Matthew 19:9a And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery;
(See also Matthew 5:32)
The only reason for a MAN to divorce his WIFE is sexual immorality on the part of the wife or he should never remarry. If he does remarry, he commits adultery (which would be violating one of the 10 commandments).
This is one of those commands that is conveniently ignored because it applies to a growing number of Christians. However, it does seem unfair that individuals who divorce and remarry or who marry a divorced woman (see link below) can simply pretend these commands do not exist but homosexuals are not allowed to ignore the commands that apply to their lifestyle.
The same fervor we have as we stand against gay marriage should be applied to these marriages also. We should organize marches, rallies, and make sure everyone who receives our vote do not support marriages under these prohibited circumstances. In fact, I believe we should all support the institution of a constitutional ban against these marriages, which violates the family values as defined by the Word just as gay marriages do.
