Are Separation and divorce allowed in Christianity?

As i grew up in a Staunch Born Again family, we were groomed into Christian Doctrines and marriage was one of them.
Paul Says its one of these two that should separate a married couple
1. Death
2. Adultery

But of recent in many staunch born again churches in my country(Uganda) and worldwide i read articles in news papers of pastors separating and with their wives filing for divorce because of small issues that are not adultery.

The Pastor marries another woman and also the wife does the same and this has become a trend to even the flocks in church, but for me i think and i believe its not right because Paul says if a man finds his wife guilty of adultery, the two can separate but not to remarry while the other is still alive

My question is, Do Christian Doctrines evolve with time or its believers trying to compromise with sin?

Malachi 2:16 For God hates divorce, he hates lying to! (Proverbs 6:16-19) has a believer ever lied after becoming being born again? SURE! Another words brother Mugoya who am I to judge another? Rom 2:1-5 please pay attention to verse 4 here brother.And Matt 7:3-8 let me pay attention to my House rather then look at other people's homes.I know many couples who got married and then for the reasons you gave,and for other reasons got a divorce. Consider this.

If a believer has married an unbeliever to start with,they have already made a mistake. 2Cor 6:14 Also between 2 believers can ones union become a lie to one or the other or both? Why not? Not looking to give excuses,but at the same time these things are true never the less. ( Rom 8:1) God himself divorced! ( Jer 3:6-8) But which one hates one can also preform according to both there own will and for there own peace!( Phil 4:7-9)

For these people as far as I am concerned brother I give the same grace to,as I myself will always need!( 2 Peter 3:18) I know there are some who tend to judge others very harshly in areas of there life,but I measure them by the same standard as I believe God wishes to look at me in daily!!!( Phil 4:7-9!!!) The only sin the blood of Jesus cannot cover is unbelief! Only God and that person know there own heart!( 1 Sam 16:7) I am to love others no matter what!( Proverbs 17:17) Not judge them! That brother is how I see it.

Irrelevant what the world or people say. God's Word is truth and final. Stick with that.
