I am concerned about divorced people who remarry, knowing it is against God's will that they do this.  Is this true?


Remarriage is always possible after divorce, even for the guilty party (after true repentance).  God has planted in most of us a desire for marriage and intimacy with the opposite sex.  Through sin (ours and others) many experience the trauma of divorce, and once the sin is confessed and a holy walk is restored, then remarriage is permissible.  Bottom line, God has called us to live in peace, and doesn't want His children "burning with passion" for that can easily lead to sin. But, reconciliation with the former spouse is always the first option, if the former spouse has not remarried or committed adultery.
