We should refuse to be unfaithful to our spouse even if the divorce is being processed in court.
I have learned through the extensive study of the Word of God that singleness is both a gift (). Well, we see what Jesus taught: He taught that we should be preaching the Kingdom of Heaven and repentance and remission of sins. So if we are single, even just for a season, we should be using that seasonal gift to serve Jesus the best we can, as the Holy Spirit leads us.
Take me for example, 5 years after the divorce, my church approached me and asked if I could lead a monthly Christian singles group. I sense the Lord’s anointing on me when I teach singles how to live meaningfully.

Divorced men are also more prone to alcohol problems, so be careful of starting down that road.
I reject the idea that singleness In other words, walk straight down the middle of the road, and avoid the two ditches on either side: one ditch is “legalism”. License is dangerous because you don’t exercise proper discretion in dating and fail to uphold personal and Biblical boundaries in dating. No matter what you think about dating, now or in the future, I hope this helped you with your healing today, in your current stage.
In this case, legalism would forbid and kill any desire or hope to remarry. Somewhere in the middle of the road, there is room for two lanes: those who choose to marry in a healthy fashion, and those who choose to remain single in a healthy fashion.

I don’t discourage marriage but I also don’t put the pressure on people to get married.
Jesus allowed His disciples to get married or live as singles. And if you don’t get married, that makes it easier to put Jesus first!
They rush into new relationships -- and often into new marriages -- within the first year.
