But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.
King James Bible
But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.
American Standard Version
(but should she depart, let her remain unmarried, or else be reconciled to her husband); and that the husband leave not his wife.
Young's Literal Translation
but and if she may separate, let her remain unmarried, or to the husband let her be reconciled, and let not a husband send away a wife.
1 Corinthians 7:11 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
But, and if she depart - He puts the case as probable, because it was frequent, but lays it under restrictions.
Let her remain unmarried - She departs at her own peril; but she must not marry another: she must either continue unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband.
And let not the husband put away his wife - Divorces cannot be allowed but in the case of fornication: an act of this kind dissolves the marriage vow; but nothing else can. It is a fact that, among the Jews, the wife had just as much right to put away her husband as the husband had to put away his wife. As divorces were granted, it was right that each should have an equal power; for this served as a mutual check.
