Jesus teaches us about divorce and celibacy in today’s gospel. Jesus says that strictly speaking there is no divorce. The Pharisees quote DT 24:1-2 which says that a man can divorce his wife. Jesus replies by saying the exception is if the marriage was unlawful to begin with. (It probably is referring to an incestuous marriage) Jesus says that the marriage bond is insoluble. Jesus says that celibacy is a special gift from God only for some people.
