Is this correct?

Someone told me that you can’t get married to another man legally once you’re no longer a virgin.  That it’s an act of adultery.  How many Christians have this belief?

    it is just an act of fornication if neither of you are married before having sex. adultery is having sex when you are married to another with another man. or having sex with someone who is married and you are not. Thanks for the question.

    No, it is not correct. Sex does not constitute marriage.

    If any do, it's that many too many.

    It's too neat and convenient.

    Roman men controlling women through religion...

    Just think: the universe is so vast. Billions of planets and stars. Life in many places in millions of galaxies. And G*d.... Just happens to reincarnate on this planet mind you...

    All that's too provincial in thinking.

    Love and many things in life are more create, break and fix. You try, you break and if you can, then you fix. If not, then you learn a lesson and move on. You accept that reality is not clean, ideal and utopian; rather, it had a beauty in the dance between chaos and order.

    You don't have to worry about religious ideas. They have believed many things that have turned out to be stupid eg, Christians used to think that everything revolved around the earth.

    That Thinking is too stupid for modern humans. We can see beyond those superstitious beliefs. Sure, books have some good ideas in them. So you can take them, and dump the sheet surrounding them.

    Easy answer = No, that is not correct at all. 

    Whether your virginity is intact or not, 

    once you divorce someone, you can legally remarry. 

    The choice is yours, and it does not belong to 'religion'. 

    Christianity does not matter.

    Marriage is a legal contract between two people and its rules are determined by the State. Religions put their own rules on it if you want to be married within the church but legally whether either, neither or both are virgins is irrelevant. If only virgins can marry, that would stop widows remarrying and that is not the case in any religion I know of.

    "You can't get married" Who is "you"?

    No, legality has nothing to do with it, in the U.S. anyway.  Biblically speaking, God's ideal was for a man and woman to be married until one or both died.   Do we always accomplish the ideal in anything?  No, so it is what it is.
