Marriage...Divorce?

Marriage: In today’s Gospel, Jesus asserts that divorce is not allowed. The bond of commitment made by a married couple is a life-time bond between them and God. For the good of the faith and peace of their children, parents are meant to love and nurture their married life in spite of the trials and crosses they face.

I think this is unrealistic. It assumes that mankind have reached a state of moral perfection. I don't think this wasn't the case when this was written (Gospel of Matthew, somewhere around 70-100AD?) and it is certainly not the case now.

But what about Deuteronomy 24:1-4?
"1 If a man marries a woman who becomes displeasing to him because he finds something indecent about her, and he writes her a certificate of divorce, gives it to her and sends her from his house, and if after she leaves his house she becomes the wife of another man, 3 and her second husband dislikes her and writes her a certificate of divorce, gives it to her and sends her from his house, or if he dies, 4 then her first husband, who divorced her, is not allowed to marry her again after she has been defiled. That would be detestable in the eyes of the LORD. Do not bring sin upon the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance." (New international version)

This seems to indicate that the man in the marriage can file for a divorce.

Anyway, I don't see that if a marriage is beyond repair that it is would be good of the faith and peace of their children to stay together?

Exceptions to the rule: Divorce is allowed if one is unfaithful or has committed adultery. Its in scripture.
