Breaking the Covenant of Marriage

Building on the other "family" miztvot F1 and F2, this next mitzvah deals with the command to keep the Covenant of Marriage by looking at the ways that Torah allows for it to be broken.

Contrary to modern practice, both in society at large or in the Body of Messiah, the Torah is very specific and limited about the circumstances in which the Covenant of Marriage may be legitimately broken and the consequences that follow from such a break.

I start from the premise that:

The Biblical Covenant of Marriage Consists of a Man and Woman Becoming One Flesh

and while that definition is under threat or challenge in some parts of the world, it remains the foundational position for considering what the Torah says about the marriage relationship and its potential break-up.

Mitzvah F3
