Hi. Just wanted to make sure I understand your post.
Are you suggesting Jesus allowed divorce in the cases of adultery?
I know some Protestant sects believe this to be true and have mistranslated Matthew 19:9 to say, "And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
But the Catholic Church does not agree. Our translation of the passage is, "I say to you, whoever divorces his wife (unless the marriage is unlawful) and marries another commits adultery.” (NAB-RE)
Jesus did not allow the marriage covenant to be broken for any reason. EVER. Neither does the Catholic Church. Either there is a valid marriage or there isn't; a valid marriage is only ended by death of one of the partners.
From the Douay-Rheims Version Matthew Chapter 5, verse 32 "But I say to you, that whosoever shall put away his wife, excepting for the cause of fornication, maketh her to commit adultery; and he that shall marry her that is put away, committeth adultery".
So, does adultery fit into the definition of "...excepting for the cause of fornication..." ?
