Catholicism and Divorce
A: The issue of who may, and who may not, receive the Eucharist lawfully is a canonical question with deep theological roots. Consequently, the Church has spoken on this matter not merely in the Code of Canon Law, but also in the Catechism and in other theological contexts. As always, canon law follows theology, and the two are consistent, for they can never contradict each other.
This means that the former spouses are catholics deemed married while the Tribunal investigates to divorced whether there was a sacramental marriage. Since it is catholics that it is not morally acceptable for a married spouse divorce date, former spouses who are still deemed married would have to wait to begin dating until they receive the ordinary process annulment. This is because dating while still married in the eyes of the Church would be a temptation to violate the marital obligations in violation of the Sixth Commandment. Unfortunately, neither the Code of Catholic Law nor the Catechism specifically discusses dating. This is likely because the concept of dating is relatively new and many may even disagree as to what it means.
