jc, I believe Mike is saying that if the husband & wife were involved in fornication (both in an affair) at the time of putting away then neither would be eligeable to remarry. And I agree with that And he can correct me if I'm wrong.<quoted text>
lol. I posted the same thing before seeing your comment. Yes, thats is why I chose your answer. I do this with anybody. It must line up with God's Word. Mike and Mark were not on the same page yet somehow you and I have reached the same conclusions on many issues. Wished SW would jump back in here- he went to Johnny's church and was well schooled in Johnny's teaching yet he came to the same conclusions once he removed the blinders.
In the supposed situation if Ruby's husband committed fornication ten or twenty years ago and they reconciled (he repented, she forgave) then she cannot put him away for that sin.
In like manner Ruby stated that she was the first to committ fornication (had an affair) but they reconciled, therefore he could not put her away for that sin but then she did it again some time later and he put her away for that. He would be eligeable to remarry. She can't claim to have put him away for something they had already reconciled.
