We must now consider the impediment that supervenes upon marriage after its consummation, namely fornication, which is an impediment to a previous marriage as regards the act, although the marriage tie remains.
Under this head there are six points of inquiry:
A Whether it is lawful for a husband to put his wife away on account of fornication?
A Whether he is bound to do so?
A Whether he may put her away at his own judgment?
A Whether in this matter husband and wife are of equal condition?
A Whether, after being divorced, they must remain unmarried?
A Whether they can be reconciled after being divorced?
