1 Corinthians 7:10-11 To The Married. 22 Apr 2024

1Co 7:10 To the married I give this ruling,

a wife must not be separated from her husband-
11 or if she has already left him,
she must remain unmarried
or else be reconciled to her husband --
and a husband must not divorce his wife.

The Husband


Why this difference? I assume that a wife who has separated her husband is in a very weak position. At least at the time of Saint Paul.


Jesus, I ask for the protection of the married women who depend on their husbands.
