Good day sir,

I previously had sex with a married woman. I myself am not married but have found someone whom I sincerely love and would like to propose marriage to her someday. She does not know of my fornication as it happened some time ago before our relationship. My girlfriend and I are not having sex as we are now baptized into Christ. According to the Bible, can I still pursue marriage with her?


Yes, you can marry because you were not married at the time. It is only those who commit adultery while in a covenant relationship who are told they cannot marry again until their first spouse has passed away (Matthew 19:9; Romans 7:2-3).
