A: At my home congregation, we do something called Kidsing on Sunday nights. All the children in the congregation come to the front pews and sing songs and answer questions. There are a few questions that are asked every week, one of which is “What is God’s plan for marriage?”. The answer is “One man, one woman, for life”. This idea is derived from Matthew 19:4-9. Here we see Jesus recounting how God, under the law of Moses, did allow the Jews to divorce. Moses allowed it because of the hardness of their hearts, but it was not always so. That statement, “But it was not always so”, indicates that Jesus was calling men back to God’s original intention for divorce and remarriage. What comes next in verse nine is fundamental in answering our question: “And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery”. Jesus gave adultery as the only scriptural means for divorce. Since this is the only acceptable grounds, someone who divorces for another reason does not have the right to remarry.
