 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.
 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife.
 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;
 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 YHWH: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which YHWH thy Elohim giveth thee for an inheritance.
There is one situation when a man can never divorce his wife. See “Until Death Do You Part”.
UNTIL DEATH DO YOU PART
YOU CAN NOT DIVORCE A WOMAN WHOM YOU HUMBLED WHEN SHE WAS A VIRGIN, BY NOT ASKING HER FATHER FOR HER HAND IN MARRIAGE BEFORE SLEEPING WITH HER
If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;
 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel’s father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days
MARRIAGE DEATH JUDGEMENTS
- Lying About Virginity
- Leaving YHWH
ADULTERY IS NOT A CAUSE FOR A DIVORCE IN TORAH LAW
Adultery is a Death Punishment. The divorce law was given for those marriages that weren’t “made in heaven” so to speak. Adultery judgements were delivered by the men of the city, stoning the woman and her lover to death. We do not live in this type of culture, so if your wife commits adultery, just divorce her. Let her fall into Yah’s hands.
If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.
 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;
 Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour’s wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.
#2 VIRGINAL WIFE, NOT A VIRGIN
Lying About Being a Virgin comes with a Death Judgement
 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her,
 And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid:
 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel’s virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate:
 And the damsel’s father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her;
 And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter’s virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city.
 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him;
 And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.
 But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel:
 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.
There are many judgments in the Torah that comes with a death penalty. That of course will end the marriage.
