Bible: Matt 19:4-8
19:4 He answered, “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator made them male and female, 1 19:5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and will be united with his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? 2 19:6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” 19:7 They said to him, “Why then did Moses command us to give a certificate of dismissal and to divorce her?” 3 19:8 Jesus 4 said to them, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because of your hard hearts, 5 but from the beginning it was not this way.
