A Short Study of 1st Corinthians 7:39

“But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.” (1 Corinthians 7:15) that is, to follow him and, press to live with him if he have deserted her.

But does he say anything about or sanction her marrying again?

Where does he say that desertion dissolves the marriage tie?

On the contrary, in the very same chapter he decides the exact opposite:

“The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but,if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will, only in the Lord.”
(1 Corinthians 7:39)

How clearly he decides the matter that death alone dissolves the marriage tie!
