Legalized Adultery, J.W. McGarvey 1877

In 1877 J. W. McGarvey wrote two consecutive articles published in the Apostolic Times on divorce and remarriage. These articles are titled “Legalized Adultery” and “Legalized Adultery Again.” Even though these articles were published nearly 140 years ago, their advice is as timely as ever. The only thing out of date is that when referring to divorce court, McGarvey is obviously writing before the days of the “no-fault” divorce laws of modern times. Prior to the 1960s or so, most states required that the petitioner for a divorce provide evidence that the defendant had broken the marital contract. Other than these out-of-date legal references, both articles are worthy to be heard.
