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

“commits adultery.” See commentary on Mark 10:11. This verse about a woman divorcing her husband is only in Mark. 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.
