What Is God’s Will When It Comes To Divorce And Remarry?

God allows divorced people to remarry when their ex is still living. Should a divorced person remarry? How does God feel when two divorced persons remarry? And also how can divorce lawyers help you with the process?

God dislikes divorce (Malachi 2:16) and only permits it when one or both spouses are unfaithful (Matthew 19:9). Divorce is neither required or desired by God in cases of adultery (Matthew 19:7-8). (Exactly how this consent is to be interpreted is unclear. Christians have had varying views on this throughout history.) When infidelity or other sins have ripped apart a relationship, God desires that both spouses regret. They must repent and make amends (1 Corinthians 7:10-11, luke 17:3-4).

Forgiveness

It is a sin not to accept (Matthew 6:15). Forgiveness can be difficult and time-consuming. That is exactly what God desires. In some couples, chronic infidelity or abuse inhibits reconciliation. It is not conceivable in the near future. Reuniting the pair is neither sensible nor safe.

If one spouse refuses to repent, the reconciling spouse is not bound to keep the sinful partner married (1 Corinthians 7:15). Lord desires repentance, so He desires that two divorced people reconcile and marry again.This is the best conclusion for a divorced couple. But what if the couples can’t reconcile and one (or both) wants to remarry? Says Jesus

A divorced man who marries another is an adulterer. “He who marries a divorced lady commits adultery.” (16:18)

Possibility of peace

That suggests God disapproves of divorced people remarrying. A second marriage to a different person is not permitted while the potential of reconciliation and re-unification persists. It’s a s In the Bible:

“I charge the married (not I, but the Lord). The woman should stay with her spouse. She should either stay single or reunite with her spouse. “Neither should a husband divorce his wife.” 7:10-11

Whereas if preceding partner passes away, the surviving partner has the option to marriage:

“A lady is married to her husband for the rest of her life. If her spouse dies, however, she is free to marry whoever she wishes in the Lord.” 7:39

Halting reunification

God does not desire a former spouse who is still living to divorce a new spouse rather than seek reconciliation. Even if the remarried spouse knew that remarrying instead of pursuing reconciliation was a sin. When someone gets divorced and subsequently gets married with a someone else, the second marriage ends for whatever reason, according to the Bible.

When a person takes a woman and marries her, he discovers some lewdness in her, writes her a registration of divorce, palms it to her, and she leaves his residence; and if she gets married another person, he despises her, writes her a certificate of divorce, hands it to her, and sends her out of his house; or if the latter man dies, who took her to b? This is unclean in the eyes of the LORD. And you must not bring iniquity into the land given to you by the LORD your God.” (Deuteronomy 24:1-4)

So, if the former spouse remarries someone else, the partner who had been holding out for their former partner to remarry can now marry others.
