All things are possible but not all things are permissible!

I don't see the problem. Before I met my husband I was divorced and so was he. We started dating and then got married later on.

Impossible to know wether it's a good thing without knowing the full extent of the circumstances surrounding his Divorce.

Many will try to group the divorced in a pen and never let them out, but the circumstances are the difference.

Matthew 5:31-32[31] "It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:[32] But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery."
And there is another place where the Christian is freed if the non-Christian decides to leave. Seek wise counsel.

It all depends on which dispensation you are reading, Israel's program it was a sin, Adultress sin. However, in the Pauline Epistles, (which he received from Christ) Paul addresses this issue. To sin... we are all dead, but we are made alive when we trust Christ and his shedding of his blood for the payment for our sins. I suggest you check it out for your self in the Pauline's epistles.

If we believe in Christ and His teachings which we find in the Bible, than the answer is very clear, since Jesus himself said "what God has put together let no man put asunder" in Gnesis 2 vers 24-25 we also find confirmation of this.
Therfore, if we are to abide by the rule of God no matter what the reason for seperation is the original married couple shall always be married in the eyes of God, and no one can change that, good day.

It is advised by Paul that both yourself and your intended partner also knows the Lord as his own personal Saviour. If he did not commit Adultery which is a bibical requirement then with help from fellow christians that have adopted step children you should have a idea what you are about to commit yourself to.

Yes, with caution. I strongly urge you to learn as much as you can about what led to his divorce. I will not date someone who filed for their divorce unless their wife cheated on them.

Set high standards for yourself.

There is life after divorce. God did not intend a person to live alone. I have researched this subject and written a booklet on the subject. If intersted let me know.
