What About Divorce and Remarriage?

To understand the biblical teaching on divorce and remarriage, we should begin with an overview of marriage.  God instituted marriage, we are told in Genesis 2:18, when he made a wife for Adam.  He instructed that a man ought to leave the guardianship of his parents and cleave to his wife and become one flesh with her (Genesis 2:24).  Of course, the wife should do the same.  The married man and woman were then to start a new family.
