Question:

I have a question. If someone divorces their spouse and then tries to reconcile with them, and on the middle of reconciling, the other decides they wanted to be with someone else. Is the one who tried to reconcile able to remarry?


Answer:

The only reason given that allows for remarriage after a divorce is when reason for that divorce is because the other person is committing sexual sins with another person (Matthew 19:9). There ought to be reconciliation, and it is sad to hear that someone refuses to forgive another for the sins committed. However, Matthew 19:9 is for cases where a spouse won't give up their sexual sins with another person. The innocent spouse can end the marriage and has the option to marry again.
