Ex-wife divorce question
« on: Sat Sep 28, 2019 - 23:30:54 »
     Senerio: let's say a guy who is now divorced for 15 years no kids from ex spouse plus no communication in any way shape or form in 15 years. This same guy out of curiousity research his ex and this is the conclusion. She is currently living 400 plus miles away and is married to another. There is not much info in contact, social media, health etc.

So where does this guy stand bibically? This same guy will not contact her, she is married, she may be still alive maybe not, 15 years has passed, she lives 400 miles away.

What particular question do you desire to be answered for you? Is he free to remarry again?  Why all the scenarios?

Biblically, he isn't married.

Biblically, he isn't married.

And how would you conclude such a thing?

“Have you not read that he who made them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.” They said to him, “Why then did Moses command one to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?” He said to them, “For your hardness of heart Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so.”

Because he is divorced and she is married to another.  Pretty easy concept. 

Jesus acknowledged the woman at the well was married multiple times and was living with a man not her husband.

Christ said that a man who marries a woman who was already married commits adultery, and the same for a woman.

And He told the woman at the well to "go and SIN NO MORE."

What did the Church said about divorce in the 2nd century?  The 3rd?  The 4th?  All the way up until the mainline Protestants started to normalize it in the 20th?  Do you know?

15 years has passed
No-contact at all
No way to find out if she is still alive
Even in a senerio if she can be contacted the likelyhood is next to zero

Would you say this guy is 100% loose from the ex and has freedom to remarry

I recognize God's Word as authoritative but not the RCC.  God's Word teaches we are free from the bond in cases of abandonment and adultery.

The church was probably not so liberal back eons ago when it came to divorce and remarriage. So that means backs hundreds of years ago they must of been right??? Surely the early church must done righy like burning people at the stake, witch hunts, murdering native americans indians without just cause just to name a few. But hey as long as they are right about marriage back in the 1700's we can overlook the atrocities.
