Deuteronomy 24:1-5
[1] 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.
[2] And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife.
[3] 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;
[4] 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.
NOTE:
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
Deuteronomy 22:[28]
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;
[29] 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
  1. Adultery
  2. Lying About Virginity
  3. Leaving YHWH

 #1 ADULTERY

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. 

ADULTERY JUDGEMENT:
Deuteronomy 22:[22]
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.
[23] If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;
[24] 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.
NOTE:
It should be noted that a man married to a woman can not commit adultery against her because he can have more than one wife according to Torah. A husband only commits adultery if he takes another man’s wife.
   

#2 VIRGINAL WIFE, NOT A VIRGIN

Lying About Being a Virgin comes with a Death Judgement

Deuteronomy 22:13-21
[13] If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her,
[14] 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:
[15] 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:
[16] And the damsel’s father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her;
[17] 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.
[18] And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him;
[19] 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.
[20] But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel:
[21] 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.
      #3 IF YOUR SPOUSE ENTICES YOU TO LEAVE YHWH  TO SERVE A FALSE ELOHIM (god)
There are many judgments in the Torah that comes with a death penalty.  That of course will end the marriage.
Deuteronomy:13:6
If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other elohim, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers;
7 Namely, of the elohim of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth;
8 Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him:
9 But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.
10 And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from YHWH thy Elohim, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
11 And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you.
