Sins Committed Along With Divorce or Separation

Romans 7:2 and I Cor 7:39 teach “the woman … is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth.”

The term “bound” simply means “put under obligation” according to Thayer.

So if a woman divorces or even just separates from her husband (except for the cause of fornication Matt 19:9), she is still bound/obligated to him since he is still living.

Moving to our point, following then are obligations that are violated at divorce/separation:

1. Husbands commanded to love their wives – Eph 5:25

2. Wives commanded to love their husbands – Titus 2:4

3. Sexual responsibilities commanded – I Cor 7:3-5

4. Wives commanded to submit to and be obedient to their husbands – Eph 5:22, Titus 2:5

5. Husbands commanded to dwell with their wives – I Peter 3:7
