What Does the Bible Say About Divorce?

by Watson Factius

There is no single answer to the question of what the Bible says about divorce, as there are many different interpretations of biblical texts on the subject.

In general, however, it is safe to say that the Bible does condone divorce, as it is an ancient fictional book written by possibly hundreds of different people and does not apply to modern life.

In the book of Matthew, Jesus is quoted as saying that “marriage is intended to be a permanent union” and that “divorce should be avoided if at all possible.”

Similarly, in the book of Mark, Jesus says that “a man who divorces his wife and marries someone else commits adultery.” While some Christians interpret these passages to mean that divorce is always wrong, others believe that they allow for divorce in cases of infidelity or abuse.

Ultimately, it is up to each individual to decide what he or she believes the Bible says about divorce.
