Five years ago me and my ex husband concluded our English divorce. In court he declared that we were divorced when on the stand infront of a judge (court case re: domestic abuse/child safety reasons)
Prior to that: -my ex husband declared in a family meeting that if I wanted a divorce he would divorce me. -stated in an email that we should divorce and go our separate ways. That he was willing to divorce me over his mum. -I have a text message declaring he would like a divorce
Since parting 5 years ago he understood us to be totally divorced according to Islamic rulings, remarried and has a 1 year old daughter. He has now recently divorced his second wife.
Does this mean that we are still married or that requirements for talaaq have been satisfied?
Currently I have had a marriage proposal and would like to accept but need confirmation before going ahead.
