I had a question regarding the woman caught in adultery in John 8:1-11. Jesus admonished the adulterous woman to leave her life of sin. Would the adulterous woman's husband be within his rights to divorce her? Jesus gives the final word on the subject in Matthew 5:31-32 ("except for maritial unfaithfulness"). Jesus forgave her, but her husband might not. -- Greg Conrad
Great question. Yes, the husband -- assuming she was married (it's possible she was unmarried and committing adultery with a married man) -- would have the choice. Hopefully he would show the same grace to her that Jesus did.
