Westminster Confession of Faith

Chapter 24: Of Marriage and Divorce

5: Adultery or fornication committed after a contract, being detected before marriage, gives just occasion to the innocent party to dissolve that contract.[484] In the case of adultery after marriage, it is lawful for the innocent party to sue out a divorce and, after the divorce,[485] to marry another, as if the offending party were dead.[486]
