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

A[1] Whether the indissolubility of marriage is of natural law?

A[2] Whether by dispensation it may become lawful to put away a wife?

A[3] Whether it was lawful under the Mosaic law?

A[4] Whether a wife who has been divorced may take another husband?

A[5] Whether the husband can marry again the wife whom he has divorced?

A[6] Whether the cause of divorce was hatred of the wife?

A[7] Whether the reasons for divorce had to be written on the bill?
