Why God allow the Jews to divorce their wives easily?

God is wise as He allowed the woman to be divorced and remarry so as not to be a burden to the husband or to cause unhappy marital discord. God wanted husband and wife to live happily together. "When God has joined together, let no man put asunder".

1. If the woman is tired of the husband or wanted to leave him for good for some reasons, what the woman needs to do is to create troubles for the man such as nagging, disobedience etc. so that he is forced to divorce her either by public word of declaration of by a letter of divorce. Obviously, if the woman loves the husband and wanted to live with him, she will not create troubles for the husband to force her to divorce her.

2. The divorced woman is then free to marry again and if she married another man, she will not be considered as committing adultery.

3. However if the woman forced a divorce by being unfaithful, then whoever married the divorced adulterated woman has committed adultery.

4. On the other hand, if the man divorced his wife in order to marry another woman, that man has committed adultery. And whoever married that unfairly divorced woman also committed adultery as she is still considered the wife of the man who have unfairly divorced her in the eyes of God.

5. But if he divorced is wife who has committed adultery and marries another woman, then the man has not committed adultery.

Sounds like a fair deal isn't it? Wise God.


Matthew 5:31
“It has been said, ‘Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.’

Matthew 5:32
But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

This is confirmed again in matthew 19:

Matthew 19:7
“Why then,” they asked, “did Moses command that a man give his wife a certificate of divorce and send her away?”

Matthew 19:8
Jesus replied, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning.

Matthew 19:9
I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”


So is there male bias in the Bible in regard to divorce and marriage? Who said woman cannot have many husbands unlike man who can have many wives? And wise God did it in such a way easily without the woman or man committing adultery.

God Blessed.
