Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage Situation # 1

A mate fornicated on another mate years ago. The innocent mate forgives the fornicator of the sin because the fornicator repents and asks for forgiveness (Matthew 6:12; 18:21,22). Years later, the same marital couple starts to experience marital problems that do not involve the sin of fornication. Is the mate allowed to put the other mate away that was once guilty of the aforementioned fornication many years ago?

Does A Homosexual Who Wants To Repent Who Was Involved In A Homosexual Marriage Need To Divorce?

Even though the SCOTUS ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States now considers homosexual "marriages" as legal as of June 2015, they are not recognized as true marriages in the eyes of God. God defined marriage as between one male and one female for life (Genesis 2:22-24) from the beginning of creation.

Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage Situation #4

A Christian couple was married scripturally. We will call them John and Sue. They both had good jobs but in two separate and distant cities. Sue wanted a divorce, but John did not. Furthermore, he correctly told her she would be violating God’s word by pursuing an unscriptural divorce. Sue filed for divorce anyway (not for the scriptural reason of fornication, Matthew 5:31,32; 19:9).

If A Couple Finds Out That They Are In An Unscriptural Marriage, Can They Be Forgiven?

Yes, but it is based on certain conditions stipulated by God. God is willing to forgive any sin of which one is willing to repent (Luke 17:3; Acts 8:22; 17:30; 1 John 1:9). In these types of sinful relationships, God states that these relationships must cease to exist.

If A Marriage Is Legal (Approved By The Government), Does That Mean That It Is God-Approved?

Why Is Divorce For Unscriptural Reasons Forbidden By God?

As we continue to see a more “progressive” (more accurately “digressive”) society that is against the values and ethics of the Scriptures, we continue to see a society that promotes and propagates that which God opposes, such as unscriptural divorces (Matthew 19:6).

Is Polygamy Sinful Today?

Polygamy is an issue that needs to be understood from the Bible as a whole. In the beginning of the creation, God joined one man (Adam) and one woman (Eve) in marriage together. When man sinned against God, man also began to change what God had designed for marriage. For instance, Lamech, from the line of Cain, was the first polygamist recorded in Genesis 4:19-24.

Years ago a couple divorced unscripturally (not for the cause of fornication - Matthew 19:9) and neither of them remarried. One of them wants to reconcile with the other, but the other mate does not want to reconcile. The mate that wants to reconcile wants to become a Christian.

Does Death Constitute The Only Biblical Reason For Remarriage?

Is A Spouse Still Married “In The Eyes of God” When He/She Divorces Her Spouse For Unscriptural Reasons?

No.

We must speak as the oracles/utterances of God (1 Peter 4:11). This man-made phrase “married in the eyes of God” is a foreign idea to the Scriptures. The Bible makes a distinction between being “bound” (Romans 7:1-4; 1 Corinthians 7:39,40) and being “married.” The wife is not "still married in the eyes of God" when she divorces her husband. She is unmarried as 1 Corinthians 7:11 states, “let her remain unmarried”. She is still bound to her spouse though (Romans 7:1-4).
