Question
I know thet Jeohvah does not permit remarriage - During Moses times people were disobedient and Moses made the Law, It was not Jeovah's original plan. He made Adam and Eve and bless them.

MY SITUATION

I am in a situation where my husband left me to marry and marry another woman, he said to marry 5 others after the second wife he took.

I am a christian who was brought up with christian principles. I am no 31yrs old and I still want to have a family and kid . I only have 2 kids.However, I dont want to live with him because he doesnt respect my faith in Jeovah and most of all mistreat me and got many women adulteres.Beside he left me with one of my kids.I am so hurt that I dont consider going back.Despite all that I also know that Jeovah wants me to be happy despite the life I faced previously.

QUESTION
IF IN THE FUTURE I FALL IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS THE SAME FAITH AS ME.IS IT OK TO GET MARRIED OR NOT????

Thank you and I patiently wait for your inspiring answer based on the bible.

Answer
Hello and thanks for writing,

I'm sorry you are going through so much.  Pray to Jehovah to help you endure, and throw your burdens on him because he cares for you:

1 Peter 5:7 "while ​YOU​ throw all ​YOUR​ anxiety upon him, because he cares for ​YOU"

If you do not want to stay you do not have to if he has committed adultery.  By committing adultery, he has stepped out of the vows not only made to you, but to God.  Marriage was instituted by Jehovah, and when we marry it's to be taken serious.  Stepping out from those vows is stepping away from the one who instituted that bond of union.

That is the only grounds that Jehovah says we can divorce our mate, if they commit adultery or fornication.

Matt 19:9 "I say to ​YOU​ that whoever divorces his wife, except on the ground of fornication, and marries another commits adultery.”

So we see from this scripture that there is an exception that God gives for divorce and that is fornication.

So the answer to your question is if your husband has slept with someone else outside of your marriage then you are free to divorce him if you so choose, and you are free to remarry someone who loves Jehovah as you do.

As we see we want to choose someone who serves Jehovah as well.

2 Cor. 6:14,15  "Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For what fellowship do righteousness and lawlessness have? Or what sharing does light have with darkness? 15 Further, what harmony is there between Christ and Be′li‧al? Or what portion does a faithful person have with an unbeliever?"

I hope I've answered your question, if not feel free to follow up

I can answer questions related to Jehovah's Witnesses and the Bible. I love learning the truth from the Bible and helping others to learn that truth as well. I don't know everything but will answer from the Bible, I like to use illustrations as well to help a person relate to what is being said. The Bible has the last say so over any person.

Experience

I am an active baptized Jehovah's Witness and Jehovah is Almighty God,(Ps. 83:18) and his Son Jesus Christ died so that everyone exercising faith in him may not be destroyed but have everlasting life. (John 3:16). I support my fellow Witnesses on this board who are real, and Jehovah's worldwide visible organization, including the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses. As God is not a God of disorder, and there could not be order if there were not ones to take the lead. Taking the lead and having a leader is not the same, our leader is Jesus Christ, and in order to have unity and order, there has to be arrangements in place. As the first century Christians had, there were men taking the lead, (Acts 6:1-6) as with Moses, (Exodus 18:21) and in our day, in following with Bible truths, we do the same. When people twist that around to us worshiping men, it is just a straight out lie! Why would the Scripture at 1 Tim. 3:1-10, 12, 13 give the criteria for men reaching out for an office of overseer if that was not meant to be? (Phil 1:1, Acts 20:17, 28, Eph. 4:11, 12, 2 Cor. 3:4-6). If we were not supposed to have men who take the lead, why was this scripture penned? James 5:14-15 "Is there anyone sick among YOU? Let him call the older men of the congregation to [him], and let them pray over him, greasing [him] with oil in the name of Jehovah. 15 And the prayer of faith will make the indisposed one well, and Jehovah will raise him up. Also, if he has committed sins, it will be forgiven him."

Organizations
If you have legit questions and want to know the truth, please ask, but if you are here to spread your lies and twists of the scriptures or get your falsehoods out, you may get rejected! The truth is from the Bible, if what you say does not harmonize with the Bible then what you say is wrong! Context and other scriptures help determine scriptures that may stump us, let scripture interpret scripture. The Bible does not contradict itself, so if what you are being taught or if what you are teaching makes it seem like the Bible is contradictory, remember it's not the Bible it's the man-made teaching! Doctrines of men! Mark 7:6, 7 "He said to them: “Isaiah aptly prophesied about YOU hypocrites, as it is written, ‘This people honor me with [their] lips, but their hearts are far removed from me. 7 It is in vain that they keep worshiping me, because they teach as doctrines commands of men." (also Romans 10:2, 3)

Education/Credentials
Matthew 24:14 says "And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come." We are doing that today, we are living in times of Bible Prophecy and as a Jehovah's Witness, we have the privilege to be apart of a prophecy spoken by Jesus himself! The good news of the Kingdom. Ask yourself, what kingdom? then read Daniel 2:44! It's a real government. Take heed now! Listening to men over God will mean your life.(Prov 3:5,6, Ps. 146:3) A lie will never become truth, No matter how long or how many people say it or speak it. Learn what the Bible really teaches, seek out Jehovah's ways, serving God in truth is only acceptable to him,(John 4:23, 24) you can not be serving God acceptably if what you believe is a lie! Pray for understanding and ask Jehovah to search your heart and draw you! (John 6:44, 65) Now is the time to be with the people who are called by Jehovah's name! (Acts 15:14, 17, Isa. 43:7, 10, Zech 8:23)
