En route to making the first marriage, God created Adam first, and then Eve.
Did God have a wise reason for creating Adam first or was the first marriage randomly constructed by God?
For Adam was formed first, then Eve” (1 Timothy -14).
In other words, age matters–generally within society but especially within marriage (hence, Paul’s use of “Adam and Eve”). This one’s fairly straight-forward in Scripture: “Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and he who marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery” (Luke ; I explain this prohibition further here).
Evidently, within the First Marriage, God intended chronology (age) to be a reason for authority. Bottom line: Any 2nd marriage is adultery in the eyes of God, unless the 1st marriage terminated due to adultery.
Divorce for Christians (except for 1 reason) is never permitted by God. Outside of your decision to follow Jesus, marriage will be your 2nd greatest decision in life. Jesus paid the debt for your sins and absorbed God’s wrath on your behalf. If you repent (turn from) all your sins and personally put your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord, God and Savior, then you will have eternal life.
A Christian essentially is someone who believes in the gospel of Jesus Christ. God loved humanity so much that He sent His only Son, Jesus (who was fully God and fully man), to die on the cross for your sins.
You and I are all sinners who deserve nothing but God’s wrath in hell after our deaths; 3.
He therefore, must condemn all sinners to punishment in the flames of eternal hell; 2.

(And why would you want anything less than God’s ideal for marriage?
