It seems obvious in scripture that God hates divorce. Divorce in our world (polygamy) as being any complete separation of wife from husband. One of the things God has laid on my heart is to realize that taking additional wives falls under the same rules and expectations as a first marriage. It would be all to easy to "divorce" a second "wife" since there are little if any legal implications to do so. However, in God's eyes a second, marriage is formed with covenant and sexual relations to a second woman. Once that happens, it is a marriage for life. He does not look any kinder on divorce of a second wife than one from a first. Something to contemplate... The message to me is... This is not something to "try" or "test" to see if it works out. Marriage whether first, second, third, etc is a lifelong covenant before God, and God hates divorce.
