1 Cor 7:10, leave or be left

My name is Rion K. Reece. I live and work (teaching English and Bible)
in Tokyo Japan. I have been lurking for nigh on a year now, and this is
my first post. I am, in the parlance of the group, a “wee Greeker,”
so please be patient with my questions.

In 1 Corinthians 7:10b I read, GUNAIKA APO ANDROS MH XWORISQHNAI this
verb is in the passive voice; why is it not, “a wife must not be
divorced by/from her husband”?

Also, the accusative and genitive combination is a little strange to me.
  Is the case of ANDROS simply being controlled by the APO?

Likewise, in 7:11 EAN DE KAI XWRISQHi…Once again a passive. Why is
this not “but if (she) is divorced (by her husband)”?

My thanks to all.
