God Hates Divorce Itself (Not Just The Remarriage)

Some people say God allows divorce as long as you don’t get remarried, but notice Malachi 2:14-16 …

verse 14 wife of thy covenant

verse 15 And did not he make one, … Therefore … let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth

verse 16 For the Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away

This is an Old Testament passage of course, but the New Testament teaches the same thing in verses like Matt 5:32 and I Cor 7:10.

So divorce (except for fornication) is always a sin, and remarriage after such divorce constitutes the additional sin of adultery.
