Jesus said that Moses loosened the Law on divorce because of the hardness of heart he found in the Israelite men. Commentaries described them as divorcing their wives for all kinds of trivial reasons, like how they burned the food and so on. The Law itself is still "God hates divorce" despite Moses' loosening of it for the sake of accommodating a strong if bad habit, presumably to keep the peace or something along those lines.
There is plenty of argument about possible acceptable reasons for divorce and certainly unfaithfulness ("fornication") is often considered a good reason. Some argue even against that, however. But "God hates divorce" stands pretty much as the bottom line in all cases. Unfortunately the churches have joined the culture in allowing easy divorce, being far more lenient than even Moses was. I think most churches go way too far these days. The divorce statistic for Christians is indistinguishable from that for nonChristians.
I think I swent too far in my own comment. Women couldn't divorce their husbands in Moses' time, and didn't have many of the rights men had, but there are some very strong women in the Bible, and some very loving relationships between spouses too. It's not always the harsh "chattel" idea that is so familiar.
I've always thought that religions are vast piles of sentences saying an enormous variety of not necessarily consistent things, so somebody could claim whatever they want and pretend to have divine right behind them.
I am not addressing "other religions" at all. I chose Chrisxtianity because I was persuaded it's true, the Bible is actually given to us by God Himself, and in making that choice I gave up all other religions as false. Not without studying them to some extent. I read my way to belief over a period of years and recognized that the truth is in the Bible so what other religions say may have some academic interest but that's about all.
I thought Jesus quoted "God hates diveroce" but I can't find it. It does occur in the OT in Malachi in a translation I don't use:
(NASB) 16 For I hatedivorce,” says the Lord, the God of Israel,
I didn't look up the other translations but they would just have variations on this same meaning.
Jesus doesn't quote it, he merely expands on it, saying the woman is caused to commit adultery if you divorce her..

By your way of thinking, the idea of a secret agent with a license to kill, equipped with clever gadgets, etc. is not an "illogical" thing, even though a particular one labeled 007 doesn't exist. Fair enough. But the idea of Tarot cards (which we agree do exist) telling your future is not logical, even though one could go through the process of reading someone's fortune and, often (especially with a judicious use of cold reading) attain surprising accuracy.
In the same way that the process of Tarot card reading is not a logical method of foretelling the future, the idea of a deity (by whatever you mean your deity to be, whether an explanation for lightning bolts or a morality car wash to clean away your sins) is not a logical thing.
