Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 5:32

_ _ But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery — that is, drives her into it in case she marries again.

_ _ and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced — for anything short of conjugal infidelity.

_ _ committeth adultery — for if the commandment is broken by the one party, it must be by the other also. But see on Matthew 19:4-9. Whether the innocent party, after a just divorce, may lawfully marry again, is not treated of here. The Church of Rome says, No; but the Greek and Protestant Churches allow it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 5:27-32.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 5:32

Causeth her to commit adultery — If she marry again.
