When Can a Divorced Person Remarry?

State statute may have indicated that a divorced person wait a set amount of time before getting married again. That time frame can vary.

A divorced person may have had to wait a year to marry again. The amount of time may have been different if the grounds of divorce were adultery and the divorced person was marrying the person with whom they committed the adultery mentioned in the divorce.

Contemporary state statues will indicate what limitations there were on a person’s ability to marry again after a divorce.
