  • 1. MaritalSituationsPreaching on Marriage / Divorce / Re-marriage isa difficult topic.Not because the Bible is unclear.Because there are so many variables, so many“what if” circumstances.

But if the husband dies, she is releasedfrom the law of her husband.
  • 4. 2 – Unmarried and UnboundSingle, widow, widower“Innocent party” who divorced their spousebecause that spouse committed fornication.The widow, widower and the innocent partyafter a divorce – are free to marry the same asthe single (never married) person.
