I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery."
Mathew 19:9 NIV
1. This passage does not forbid polygamy
A man who marries another woman is NOT said to commit adultery. But a man who divorces his wife AND marries another woman is said to commit adultery.
2. If a man divorces his wife and marries another woman he has committed adultery
A man who divorces his wife and marries another woman is said to commit adultery (with the exception of marital unfaithfulness.) But he is allowed to marry more than one woman, so why is it adultery to marry an extra woman in the case of divorce?
3. It is not directly stated here to be considered adultery if he divorces his wife and does not marry another woman?
If divorce is the same as adultery than why is it not directly stated to be adultery unless the man both divorces his wife and marries another woman?
