This debate came up on another forum on which I post (not an Islamic one) and I thought I may get some better answers here.
The issue was in relation to the case in France where a Muslim man was granted a divorce because his wife had lied about being a virgin. With this I agree.
However the discussion in question is to do with whether a Muslim man can marry a non virgin woman, knowing she isnt a virgin. Another poster said that no self respecting Muslim man would or should however my own view was that if she saw she was wrong and sought forgiveness from Allah then there should be no problem as who are we to hold something against someone even though Allah has forgiven.
I would be grateful for any thoughts on this.
