The Westminster Confession of Presbyterian churches says it does:
5. Adultery or fornication, committed after a contract, being detected before marriage, giveth just occasion to the innocent party to dissolve that contract. In the case of adultery after marriage, it is lawful for the innocent party to sue out a divorce, and after the divorce to marry another, as if the offending party were dead.
6. Although the corruption of man be such as is apt to study arguments, unduly to put asunder those whom God hath joined together in marriage; yet nothing but adultery, or such willful desertion as can no way be remedied by the Church or civil magistrate, is cause sufficient of dissolving the bond of marriage; wherein a public and orderly course of proceeding is to be observed; and the persons concerned in it, not left to their own wills and discretion in their own case.
What does the word of God say about this?
Firstly, “What God has joined let not man put asunder.” (Matt.19:6). The fact is man cannot put marriage asunder only God can by the death of a spouse:
“For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.” (Rom.7:2,3).
Divorce is the lawful separation of a couple only as a last resort after proven adultery (desertion is not a scriptural ground!). Our legal system and the population as a whole take this divorce as being the annulment of the marriage and allowing the freedom to remarry but is this Biblical?
Biblical divorce is separation of bed and board NOT the end of the marriage. God divorced Israel but he plainly stated he was still married to her! ” And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:” (Jeremiah 3:8, 14). Hence to divorce and remarry for ANY REASON is adultery just as Jesus and Paul state in Matthew 5:31,32, 19:9 and I Cor.7:39. Furthermore unrepentant adulterers (i.e.those on second marriages while first spouse still lives) will be barred from heaven (I Cor.6:9).
