The minister has a complex task.. He is a preacher, teacher, counsellor, and pastor. Part of his work is to perform marriages. In doing this he is often asked to perform marriages where one or both parties are divorcees. He needs to decide then whether or not he will marry them.. This is not an easy decision to make.

Most churches have an official ruling for the denomination. But many ministers do not adhere to this official ruling. There are also differences in the official positions which the churches take. Since there is so much confusion in the matter of remarrying divorced persons, the problem of this thesis is to seek an answer to the question: Is there any Scriptural basis for the remarriage of divorced parsons?
