More on 1 Corinthians 7:15 Answering Criticisms II

In the last post, I left off with a few answers regarding common arguments against remarriage for the Christian ex-spouse in the 1 Co 7:15-16 verses. Matt 5:32, and Luke 16:18 just do not answer the question of what is the abandoned Christian to do if the unbeliever initiates the divorce. Both are the 'husband divorces wife' cases. Furthermore there is some controversy in the translation of Mt 5:32. Link 1, Link 2, Link 3, Link 4, Link 5

Matthew 19:9 and Mark 10:11-12 are also used to justify prohibition of remarriage for the Christian involved in 1 Co 7:15-16. I commented already on Mark 10:11-12 and its silence on the abandoned innocent ex-spouse. Matthew 19:9 only address the 'husband divorces wife' case and doesn't address the innocent ex-wife and nor the case of 'wife divorces husband'.
