  28. The dissolution of the marriage tie was regulated by the Mosaic law ( Deuteronomy 24:1-4 ). The Jews, after the Captivity, were reguired to dismiss the foreign women they had married contrary to the law ( Ezra 10:11-19 ). Christ limited the permission of divorce to the single case of adultery. It seems that it was not uncommon for the Jews at that time to dissolve the union on very slight pretences ( Matthew 5:31 Matthew 5:32 ; 19:1-9 ; Mark 10:2-12 ; Luke 16:18 ). These precepts given by Christ regulate the law of divorce in the Christian Church. biblestudytools.com

  30. "a legal dissolution of the marriage relation." The law regulating this subject is found ( 24:1-4 ) and the cases in which the right of a husband to divorce his wife was lost are stated ibid ., ( deuteronomy 22:19 deuteronomy 22:29 ) The ground of divorce is appoint on which the Jewish doctors of the period of the New Testament differed widely; the school of Shammai seeming to limit it to a moral delinquency in the woman, whilst that the Hillel extended it to trifling causes, e.g., if the wife burnt the food she was cooking for her husband. The Pharisees wished perhaps to embroil our Saviour with these rival schools by their question, ( Matthew 19:3 ) by his answer to which, as well as by his previous maxim, ( Matthew 5:31 ) he declares that he regarded all the lesser causes than "fornication" as standing on too weak ground, and declined the question of how to interpret the words of Moses. biblestudytools.com
