Moses directed a legal letter of divorcement (De 24:1). Christ positively forbids divorce except for unchastity. Marriage is a divine institution, and the obligation is for life (Mt 19:3-9; Ro 7:1-3 1Co 7:10-17).

I think it speaks. It is a light in the dark. It tells the truth. It is a shame that either side would put away the other. I think it happens now a days more to males then females. No with womens lib women have the legal athourity to put their husbands away.
