Can I Re-Marry?

Q. My husband left me after 19 years of marriage and insisted on divorcing me. He says he was not unfaithful to me during our marriage, however, he has since developed a same-sex relationship. I know he had several relationships with men prior to the divorce that I have since been told were homosexual. I have not wanted a relationship with another man since that time, however, I do wonder if I ever found someone, would I be free to marry in God’s sight?

A. If you have it on good authority that your ex-husband was sexually involved with someone else, whether male or female, while you were married then there’s nothing to prevent you from marrying again (Matt. 5:32). Also, if he was not a believer when he left you then you’re free to re-marry regardless of his reason for leaving (1 Cor. 7:15).
