Of the Bill of Divorce

We must now consider the bill of divorce, under which head there are seven points of inquiry:

  1. Whether the indissolubility of marriage is of natural law?
  2. Whether by dispensation it may become lawful to put away a wife?
  3. Whether it was lawful under the Mosaic law?
  4. Whether a wife who has been divorced may take another husband?
  5. Whether the husband can marry again the wife whom he has divorced?
  6. Whether the cause of divorce was hatred of the wife?
  7. Whether the reasons for divorce had to be written on the bill?
