and if she herself divorces her husband, and marries another, she commits adultery.” Bible other translations

“commits adultery.” See commentary on Mark 10:11. Although it was difficult for a woman to divorce a husband in the ancient culture, it did occur. We know of some “high profile” cases, but that is understandable. Historians have always focused on the rich and famous, but that does not mean that other women of more ordinary status did not also sometimes divorce their husbands.
