Fair enough, but having read that many times for this topic, it doesn't seem like, from that quote alone, that the man suffers anything from divorce. Only if he doesn't do it for "sexual immorality" that he makes the woman commit adultery. As long as a man doesn't marry a divorced woman, he's in the clear.
