Q&A

If Jesus made an exception for divorce in cases of adultery, why doesn’t the Church?

Question:

In Matthew 19:3-9 when the Pharisees are questioning Jesus about divorce, Jesus seems to make an exception in the case of adultery. Why, then, doesn&#039;t the Catholic Church follow what Jesus says in the Bible and allow divorce in such circumstances?
