Does this married couple think that they are playing as children on a school ground? They exhibit very immature reasoning...sort of like if so and so is allowed, then I'm not going to...tactics From God's eyes,they are married. Maybe the rest of the story would be more telling. I wonder who talked whom into going along with the idea of divorce. The label "Christian" here may be only in reference to profession.

Also perhaps Australia may have different laws that the U.S., in this area but they may not get tax breaks for being married.
As you pointed out,
Matthew 19 4 And He answered and said, "Have you not read, that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE, 5 and said, 'FOR THIS CAUSE A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, AND SHALL CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE; AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH'? 6 "Consequently they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate." .... 8 He said^ to them, "Because of your hardness of heart, Moses permitted you to divorce your wives; but from the beginning it has not been this way. 9 "And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery."---[URL=http://www.lockman.org/nasb/nasbcmp.php]]]NASB[/URL]
