Bible: Mark 10:2-12

10:2 Then some Pharisees 1  came, and to test him 2  they asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his 3  wife? 4  10:3 He answered them, 5 What did Moses command you? 10:4 They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of dismissal and to divorce her.” 6  10:5 But Jesus said to them, “He wrote this commandment for you because of your hard hearts. 7  10:6 But from the beginning of creation he 8  made them male and female. 9  10:7 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother, 10  10:8 and the two will become one flesh. 11  So they are no longer two, but one flesh. 10:9 Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

10:10 In the house once again, the disciples asked him about this. 10:11 So 12  he told them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. 10:12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.” 13
