First Thessalonians instructs us to “abstain from all appearance of evil” (KJV).
Most people going through a divorce, even when it is not their fault and even when they have biblical reasons, are usually shattered by the circumstances and not in any frame of mind to be “dating.” People don’t usually make good decisions while “on the rebound.” For a still-hurting divorced person or someone in a painful divorce process to be dating is neither wise nor prudent.The abandoned spouse may indeed be lonely, but making clear-headed, godly relationship decisions in such a situation is difficult, if not impossible." Answer: The question of dating during the divorce process is difficult to answer for several reasons.For one thing, the concept of “dating” as we know it today is nowhere mentioned in the Bible.Most marriages in Bible times were arranged, and any contact between two prospective spouses was strictly monitored.
In addition, no matter what view one takes on the issue of divorce, it is important to remember Malachi : “‘I hate divorce,’ says the LORD, the God of Israel” (NAS).
All of the biblical allowances for remarriage after a divorce relate to the “innocent” spouse in a divorce with biblical grounds.
There is no biblical allowance for remarriage for a spouse divorced for unbiblical reasons or for a spouse who caused a divorce, whether by adultery, abandonment, and/or other possible grounds.
Even the innocent victim of an unwanted divorce is still married until the marriage is legally or formally ended.
Forging a dating relationship outside of marriage, even for those getting a divorce, gives the wrong appearance.
