Is it possible for divorced people to get married again?

Question: Is it possible for divorced people to get married again?

Answer, Boris Grisenko: It all depends on when the divorce took place, who got divorced, with whom they got divorced, why they got divorced, etc. All prohibitions on divorce in Scripture apply exclusively to believers, and nowhere is there any stipulation that if a person who was an unbeliever, divorced as an unbeliever, and then came to faith in the Lord, became a believer, then all these prohibitions apply to him. There is not the slightest hint anywhere.

According to the Bible, to the New Testament, where there is a much more strict approach to marriage in general and to divorce in particular than in the Tanakh, than in the Torah, as well as in other moral issues – in the New Testament it is clear and It is clearly stated that these restrictions apply to those who are divorced while being believers. Therefore, even if it is said about what to do if an unbelieving spouse or an unbelieving spouse wants to divorce you, it is said that we can at least not hold them back if they firmly decide so – and the brother or sister is then free. We hold to such a clear understanding of the Word of God.

Question – Does a brother or sister have the right to restore a relationship with an ex-wife or ex-husband from whom they divorced as non-believers? Does he have the right? Of course he does. Why did I highlight this question? Because according to the Torah, if a husband divorced his wife completely officially, then he then did not have the right to marry her again. Where the Gospel says that if a husband or wife divorces and then enters into a second marriage, then they commit adultery – that is, the clause is that their remarriage will be adultery if they divorced except for the guilt of adultery.

Some literate people try to lead to adultery, so that some kind of fall occurs with their spouse, and then quickly – divorce, and another person is already standing outside the door step, whom they have already chosen for themselves.

Therefore, when we talk about adultery, sorry, what we really mean is systematic adultery. And one more thing – a husband or wife cannot do it like that: for example, they found out that their husband or wife had an affair, found out somehow, repented – that’s it, they were forgiven, everything is fine, then time passes – six months, a year, two, three and… family conflicts, problems and… a person gets divorced and says: “I’m divorcing you because you cheated on me three years ago, or a year ago…” Nonsense! This is not a divorce due to adultery. Simply the fact of adultery, which a person has repented of and which does not continue in any way, is used as a reason to fulfill his own selfish will.
