Question:

The commands and patterns of marriage and divorce are confusing if you use any in MMLJ for today’s people.

Answer:

"For some people, if they are unable to understand something, then it must be wrong. In discussing false teachers, Jude warns, “But these speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves.” (Jude 10). It is easy to degrade what you do not understand." [Reviling What They Do Not Understand]

I can almost guarantee that you use the gospel accounts to talk about many matters. You don't find the teachings that they contain difficult for the most part. But you reject the words of Christ in regards to divorce because you don't like the obvious conclusion drawn from what Jesus said. If you are confused, study to understand.
