Chris's 1 Corinthians Chapter 7 comment about verse 11 on 10/13/2020, 2:16am...

The Bible declares that divorce is a sin as it breaks the special lasting bond that a husband & wife can enjoy: the two shall be one flesh. So Paul says in 1 Corinthians 6:16, "know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh." So any sexual union outside of marriage is considered an act of adultery.

When you say "when the partner cannot understand each other any longer", is it that misunderstandings & arguments are so frequent that the marriage is no longer loving & committed? At times, a couple can come to 'loggerheads' or the marriage becomes so stale or difficult that divorce seems the only release from that situation. However, in a Christian marriage, divorce is not an option, but there is room for a separation (1 Corinthians 7:11) with a view to take time away from each other to consider the matter & for eventual reconciliation. Yet, if even this isn't possible, then a permanent separation may be needed, but both parties remain unmarried.

This sounds difficult, especially if the suffering becomes unbearable in marriage, even if everything is done, including both praying & waiting on the Lord, seeking counselling & giving the marriage another shot by making some changes in those areas of conflict. If there's still no hope, then only a separation is permitted. If they still want to divorce & re-marry, then they come under the Hand of God for their outcome. But as I say, everything must be done to save the marriage, which is holy before God.
