What does Islam say about a person who had only one wife and has divorced her now. Does the rule varies if they do or don't have children? If yes, how? Can the person remain single after that?
A woman should wait for at least 3 months before marrying someone again. There is no compulsion for man or woman to marry or not marry after divorce. Although getting married is recommended by Prophet (P.B.U.H)
From Sahih Bukhari
The law of Islam has created several solutions and lines of defense for family before resorting to divorce ...
And when impossibility of married life, the divorce is the last solution to keep this family, but for the divorce terms and conditions and controls, the Muslim should abide by it.
First divorce (divorce small Baynunah): Is that the man called his wife by saying a one-time word: You are divorced or I divorce you, or other words that have the same significance.
Second divorce (divorce big Baynunah):
Is that the reasonable man called his wife the right three divorces in varying times, or be divorce her one divorce and ended iddah of the wife three months.
The children not connected to them to rule of divorce or reversed from a shar'i point, but in some cases be continuation in married life itself is a harm to children and family, and the divorce is the final solution for the benefit of the Muslim family when impossible to married life.
But for a Muslim to adhere to conditions of the divorce and his sunnah as not to falls in forbidden divorce
