Dating after the divorce
In states that recognize fault in a divorce case, dating during divorce can be viewed as adultery.
This can affect the outcome of your divorce as far as spousal support and the eventual property settlement goes.
Such a divorce, therefore, is a spiritual failure and should prompt those involved to focus on the Lord and not on seeking to replace the one being divorced.
The third situation in which dating during the divorce process might occur is that of a person who causes a divorce, i.e., the “guilty” party in a divorce.
Question: "I am in the process of getting a divorce.
Can I start dating, or do I have to wait until the divorce is final?
The Bible nowhere states that the “guilty” spouse in a divorce is allowed to remarry; therefore, he or she should not be dating.
Since the purpose of dating to find a spouse or to seek companionship with the opposite sex, biblically speaking, a married man or woman is not free to date, even if there is a pending divorce.
Believe me, he will likely react to the fact that you are dating by making your life hell during the divorce process.
First Thessalonians instructs us to “abstain from all appearance of evil” (KJV).
The better choice is to abstain from any action that could endanger one spiritually or give the impression to others of a careless attitude toward marriage.
If you have children, then you also need to realize that it's in your best interest to try to keep a cordial relationship with your husband.
You will most likely have ongoing contact with your husband after the divorce because of the children.According to the Bible, marriage is a lifetime commitment. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate” (Matthew 19:6). There are three situations in which dating during the divorce process might occur.The first is the case of a spouse who has biblical grounds for divorce.That is, the innocent spouse has been abandoned by his/her unbelieving spouse or has been cheated on by an unrepentant adulterer.
