Biblical view on dating after divorce
How does God feel when 2 people who were divorced get back together with each other in marriage again? ) and only allows for it in the case of unfaithfulness by one or the other spouse (Matt. Even in the case of unfaithfulness, God does not require or desire divorce but merely permits it (Matt 19:7-8).
When there has been unfaithfulness or other sins that have torn apart the relationship, it is God’s desire that both partners would repent.

The Bible teaches that if a person divorces, remarries with a different person, then that second marriage ends (for whatever reason), then the original spouses can not get back together. We now have around 200 people from all over the world involved in Global Rize’s ministry.
“When a man takes a wife and marries her, if then she finds no favor in his eyes because he has found some indecency in her, and he writes her a certificate of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her out of his house, and she departs out of his house, and if she goes and becomes another man’s wife, and the latter man hates her and writes her a certificate of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her out of his house, or if the latter man dies, who took her to be his wife, then her former husband, who sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after she has been defiled. And you shall not bring sin upon the land that the LORD your God is giving you for an inheritance.” (Deuteronomy 24:1-4) Therefore, if the former spouse remarries somebody else, thus cutting off any possibility of being reunited in marriage, then the spouse who held out for remarrying their former spouse is now free to marry someone else.

Of all God’s ordinances and institutions marred by sin and teetering from spiritual and moral decay, perhaps none bears the marks of damage as much as marriage.
Studies, both public and private, religious and secular, surrounding the condition of marriages in America are legion.
