Since we in the USA are now preserving the sanctity of marriage and the moral fiber of the US through majority vote, I have a few propositions to make. These are all based on sound Biblical principles-of course:
Only a marriage between a believer and a believer will be valid in the USA.
2 Cor. 6:14-15
All marriages are permanent.
A husband can divorce his wife, if he bought her from her father, but if she no longer pleases him. and her father or close kinsman can buy her back, he may sell her. The husband also has the option of giving his wife to his son, in which case she then becomes the original husband's daughter. Or if the husband marries another wife, and fails to maintain his first wife's standard of living and previous sexual activity, she is free to divorce him.
A husband may also divorce his wife, if he obtained her as a prisoner of war, and is not sexually satisfied with her after one month's time.
Divorce is to be forced for all those who have married foreign wives.
Ezra 10:1-16, Nehemiah 13:23-30
If a woman divorces, and remarries, she may not go back to her first husband.
If one spouse can prove adultery he/she may get a divorce and remarry.
Matthew 5:31-32, Matthew 19:3-9
No divorce is permitted.
No remarriage is permitted.
No wife may leave her husband, but if she does she must remain unmarried, or reconcile with her husband, and no husband may leave his wife. A Christian who is married to a non-Christian who is happy with him/her may not divorce him/her. But if the unbeliever leaves, then a divorce is allowed.
Of course I realize that some of these propositions contradict each other. One can only guess what God's true will is. This is why we will vote-so the majority can decide what the right thing for ALL AMERICANS is, and preserve the sanctity of marriage.
