    Dear brother, tank you for your excellent teaching. One question if the man who puts away his wife for any cause and marries another commits adultery, why is Jesus saying that the man who marries her that is put away, also commits adultery?
    The reason why God calls the husband an adulterer it´s obviously because he is still married, even tho´ he has put away his wife.
    Wouldn´t then the woman have the right to re-marry, because of her husband sexual immorality? Why is Jesus saying that she and her possible second husband would commit adultery ?
