Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that [is] abomination before the LORD: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the LORD thy God giveth thee [for] an inheritance.

Christian men must marry a virgin woman according to law of God.

According to the Holy Scriptures christian men must marry a virgin woman; For it is written in Revelation 1:6 " And Jesus Christ has made us kings and priests unto God and His Father;..." and also in 1 Peter 2:9 " But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation,.."; So all the christians on earth are priests of God;
And it is written in Leviticus 21:7 " The priests shall not take a wife that is a whore, or deflowered, neither shall they take a woman put away from her husband; for he is holy unto his God" and also in Ezekiel 44:22 " The priests shall not take for theirs wives a widow, nor her that is put away; but they shall take virgins of the seed of Israel, or a widow that had a priest before"
So christian men, who are now priests, must marry a virgin woman or a widow of a christian who was married being a virgin.

You may argue that we are no longer under the Mosaic Law, but this is a big mistake;

for Jesus Christ says in Matthew 5:17-19 " Think not that I am come to abolish the Law and the Prophets; I am not come to abolish, but to fulfil. For verily I say to you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven, but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven."

So Jesus Christ cannot abolish any law which is not already predicted in the Law and the Prophets, according to His own word in Matthew 5:17-19; thus Jesus Christ has made 7 reforms ( 7 is number of perfection) to bring the Law to perfection.
The 7 reforms made by Jesus Christ are already predicted in the Law and the Prophets; so He fulfilled the Law and the Prophets by doing these reforms.

These reforms are:
1- reform related to the law of divorce,
2- reform related to the law of death penalty,
3- reform related to the law of vengeance; eye for eye, tooth for tooth,
4- reform related to the law of Aaronic priesthood; the high priest,
5- reform related to the law of Leviticus priesthood; the priests,
6- reform related to the law of of earthly tabernacle and the sacrifices of sin expiation,
7- and last, you must be baptized by Holy Spirit before being partaker of the kingdom of heaven

So if you don't understand what apostle Paul has written, keep what Jesus says.

Shalom, God bless you while you are keeping His word.
