    To Luis:

    You need to stay in 1 Corinthians chapter 7; read it slow; take some notes to keep it straight.

    My comment is that children suffer the MOST when parents get their relationships in a knot.

    Genesis 2:23-24 is the first marriage in creation. It's supposed to be a covenant. The two become one.

    God barely tolerates divorce; only for adultery. If I understood right you have left the wife of your youth? Do you have children with her?

    My best advise is to go to a Christian pastor or counselor, with your legal wife and try to see if you have enough between you to continue.

    The 2nd woman, unfortunately, doesn't get to participate in the counseling.

    Try to consider three people who are being harmed by this. I know if you ask the Lord to help you set it right, He will help you.

    Spend a little time in 1 Corinthians 13, the love chapter. My Bible says charity which is the same word, love. Don't walk away from God over this. God is Love. Walk toward Him.

    Hello, divorce is a sin. Matthew 5:32. Please read the whole chapter to see what God thinks about divorce. There's only few exceptions such as if your wife betrayed your vows and cheated on you. May God bless you and your decisions.

    Luis. That's an awful relationship situation you present. It's difficult to comment as this man has supposedly become a 'Christian' & still wants to behave like a non-Christian & leave a trail of tragedies around him. Some Christians believe that there is still opportunity for him to get himself right with God through repentance, even though he wants to remarry while being a 'Christian'!; others believe, there is no more hope as he would "put Christ to an open shame" (Heb 6:6).

    Well, I can't see that he ever converted in the first place (but God is his Judge & sees the condition of his heart, not me). So whatever he decides to do will be sin & until he comes to the foot of the Cross in true conviction of his many sins, there is no salvation for him. So your question: what should he do? Well, salvation through Jesus is his only hope & he stays with his second wife, without adding sin upon sin, but if he wants to maintain this lifestyle of having multiple wives (as God doesn't recognize divorce), then he is free to do whatever he wants, as those who conduct themselves as non-Christians, without the knowledge of God & His Word.
