"But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery." Matthew 5:32
"I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery."
"He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery." Mark 10:11-12
These are commands not suggestions. Although the first two do have the clause of "except for marital unfaithfulness." It doesn't mean you resort to divorce at the first opportunity. This "exceptional clause" is like the opportunity to exit a high speed roller coaster at a theme park. You may chose to exit the ride due to health conditions, but you would run the same risk if you got in line for another high speed roller coaster. So, if you chose to take the exit door, or "divorce" you are to remain unmarried, otherwise, do not divorce, but reconcile to your husband or wife, if you do not think you can remain unmarried.
Even for those that argue that marital unfaithfulness is grounds for divorce, I would like to point out that nowhere in the Bible does it say that a man that divorces his wife or a woman who divorces her husband can get re-married to someone else again. On the contrary. Mark 10:11-12 clearly addresses that re-marriage to a person other than the one-flesh covenant spouse, is in fact adultery. Let's examine these verse closely:
"Anyone who divorces his wife ['anyone' includes the ones who divorce due to marital unfaithfulness. There is no 'exceptional clause' here] and marries another woman commits adultery. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, [there is no 'exceptional clause' here either for marital unfaithfulness] she commits adultery."
Let's look at another Bible verse:
"To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband, But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife." I Corinthians 7:10 Again, this is a commandment from the Lord, not a suggestion and there is no 'exceptional clause' for marital unfaithfulness.
Ministers are very freely granting people to divorce and re-marry due to marital unfaithfulness. The Bible clearly says that God hates divorce. When ministers perform a re-marriage ceremony with anyone who has been divorced, what do they do with this Bible verse:
"For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law of marriage. So then, if she marries another man while her husband is still alive, she is called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is released from that law and is not an adulteress, even though she marries another man." Romans 7:2-3
Here is a good example of someone who has legalized her adultery. She has re-married, but God has not condone her re-marriage because her one-flesh covenant spouse is still alive and she is still bound to him, regardless of what the earthly laws indicate. The marriage is legal, but in God eyes she is an adulteress, and will be branded as adulteress as long as her covenant spouse is still alive. A covenant marriage is not something you can just repent of, as if it had been a sin. The re-marriage is the sin and should be the one people should repent of.
"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has join together, man must never separate." (Mark 9:7-9 ISV)
"Has not the LORD made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And Why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth. 'I hate divorce,' says the LORD God of Israel, 'I hate the person who covers himself with violence.' says the LORD of Armies. Be careful not to be unfaithful." (Malachi 2:15-16 WGT)
