Does Jesus Allow for Divorce in the case of Adultery? The prominent view is "Yes." of course. Since He fairly says that in Matt. 19. However, some would argue that Jesus is actually refering to divorce as breaking off a betrothal (as in, Joseph found out Mary was pregnant and "resolved to divorce her quietly.") Under this view, Jesus is saying you may break a betrothal in the case of adultery, but once married, you are married for life, no matter what. Has anyone heard this view? Thoughts?
