Thank you for your thoughts on this. But one question regarding divorce that you mention: I thought divorce was allowed if the woman commits adultery? I mean, Jesus said "But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery"
