  • Cb Casserly on Matthew 19:9
    Jesus is talking to the espoused or rather the engaged when he speaks of "fonication". Just like how Mary was considered Joseph's wife even though they were not yet married. So the engaged man can put away his wife if it is found that she is not pure ( not a virgin). Thus, it is safe to say that she has committed fornication. Fornication is a forbidden sexual act between the unmarried. To the married he simply says remain married because you have passed the stage (espoused/engaged stage) to put away your spouse.
