Whether one can remarry, then, is determined by whether or not the divorce itself was biblical.

A divorce on biblical grounds constitutes the right to remarry, in my opinion.

I disagree that this limits our Lord's words to the engagement period, and not beyond.

What, then, do we say concerning Mark -12, which seems to teach that anyone who divorces and remarries is committing adultery?

I think all Christians would agree that God's ideal for marriage is "one man and one woman, living together in marriage until parted by death." We see this emphasized by our Lord in Matthew 19:3-12.

It gave them the freedom to re-marry, without the guilt of committing adultery.

When I look at passages like Deuteronomy 24:1-4, it seems to me that divorce was granted so that the divorced party could remarry, without becoming guilty of adultery.

Jesus responded that the divorce should be governed by God's original intent for marriage, and not by the culture of the day.
