The difficult question of divorce. The truth no one exposes about Matthew 19:9 (Christians read and learn)?

Religion holds a lot of people in bondage with divorce. I read people explain that the only reason for divorce is unfaithfulness. They quote Matthew 19:9.

What about divorcing because someone is molesting your child, domestic violence, or other extremely disturbing things outside of unfaithfulness. People would have you believe God wants you in these kind of situations.

In the Bible God has divorced us (Jeremiah 3:8;) but took us back.

Look at Matt.19: and you have Pharisees trying to test Jesus and he told them the correct answer first. God doesn't divorce at all. The Pharisees were functioning under the law of Moses. They asked Jesus about the Law of Moses.

He said Moses permitted divorce not God, he places a but in the statement "it was not this way in the beginning." God is the same today, yesterday, and forever. He doesn't change. Just like in the beginning He didn't want divorce. He still doesn't. What has happened most of us don't ask God should we marry so-in-so.
Update: Jesus in Matt 19: is reciting the law of Moses. We are not living under law. (Romans 10:4) That law doesn't apply to us.
