  1. For the girl who wrote her prodigal remarried I recommend you listen to the testimonies on Rejoice marriage ministries. There are many marriages that have been restored after the prodigal married someone else. All these stander said the Lord promised restoration. Yes God hates divorce but I believe if you stand and God promised He will restore. He will also rebuild your trust. Nothing is impossible for Gods.

    1. Thank you for your comment. You are correct, nothing is impossible for God!

      For this specific situation, according to 1 Cor. 7:39, a believer would not be free to remarry a former spouse unless that person is a Christian. We cannot assume that the unbeliever would become converted after they remarried (1 Cor 7:16).

      From the described situation, her former husband is unrepentant and showing no signs of being a believer. Above all things, we recommend the focus remain on a relationship with the Lord.

  2. Tom and Amy,
    I am so great full for your testimony and encouragement. I am quite taken back by your answer to the question about a prodigal husband in a non covenant marriage. There are many testimonies of restored marriages after non covenant marriages. In Matthew 19 and Mark 10 Jesus says “what God has joined together let no one separate…anyone who divorces his wife and marries another is guilty of adultery.” No where does it say that God blesses those remarriages or separates the two that He made one originally. Also, 1 Corinthians 7 states “The husband who is a non believer is made holy through his believing wife.” So I don’t know how you could say that she never should have married him or want her marriage restored because he was never a believer. Please take this under consideration and let me know.
