It ISN'T okay for Christians to divorce and remarry, but that shows you just how lightly people take their commitments! There are only a few reasons for divorce. The first reason, adultery or being unfaithful to one’s spouse. The Bible says in Matthew 19:7-9 that there are consequences to divorcing a spouse for reasons other then adultery: And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication (adultery), and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.” The second reason for divorce is if one of a married couple gets saved and the unbelieving spouse no longer wants to dwell with the saved spouse (because he/she got saved). The Bible states: “But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace. (I Corinthians 7:15)” Because of this person’s conversion the spouse did not want to remain in the marriage. God says you are free to let them go and you may remarry. What if a person was an unbeliever when he got divorced and it was for an unbiblical reason and later became a Christian? What should he do? If reconciliation is an option, seek it. However, If the ex-spouse is not a Christian, he should not remarry the spouse because a believer is not to marry an unbeliever (2 Cor. 6:14). If either spouse has gotten married, remarriage is not an option either (Deut. 24:3-4; Mark 10:11-12). If the spouse has died, you are free to remarry. What if a person was a believer when he got divorced, but the reason was not adultery or abandonment, and wants to remarry someone different now what should he do? If you initiated the divorce, then you should not remarry (Matt. 5:31), However.... Reconciliation with the initial spouse should be sought with confession of sin and the request for forgiveness. If it was the spouse that left without a biblical reason, then you are free to remarry. What if a couple was divorced, married others, got divorced, and wants to become remarried to again? The Bible says that you cannot return to your first spouse after you remarried (De 24:3,4; Jer 3:1). If you have, nevertheless, already gotten married, continue in your marriage and seek the Lord's forgiveness. He will give it. What if a person was a believer when he got divorced, but the reason was not adultery or abandonment, and has already gotten married. Is he in sin?Depending on the circumstances, he may be. But he should confess his sin to the Lord and spouse and seek forgiveness from the original spouse and then he should stay married and be the best husband (or wife) he/she can be.
