    The verse Deuteronomy 24:1, If a man has a wife and sends her out of the house with cussing words and violence and states she is no longer welcome and pays for her to move out of house and divorce. Is she free to be with another man? Is there a waiting period before she speak too or be with another man?

    This was the Lord's directive concerning a lawful divorce. In the event that a man finds 'uncleanness' in his (new) wife, then he is permitted to give her a letter of divorce absolving the marriage. The word 'uncleanness' is from the Hebrew, 'erwat', which allows for past lewdness, present indecency or shameful exposure. Such a character history can be grounds for divorce & she is therefore forced to leave the house. No alimony involved here - she's out on her own & probably has to endure family rejection as well.

    So, she runs into the arms of another man & guess what? He finds out that she has been less than honourable, so he boots her out as well. Verse 4 then says that the first husband is not permitted to take her back again because she has been defiled by the second. For some unknown reason the first husband might want her back - they never learn. No waiting period is seen here - she just has to flit around until someone doesn't pick up on her past history.

    Sounds too loose. Get an attorney as soon as possible.

    I understand what you said but it is the husband that has been cheating and once the wife found out he was very upset She found out and said for her to leave For snooping into his things and paid to get her stuff out that night.

    does that not technically be considered him divorcing her and does not want her in the house if he kicks her out. Then he files divorce on the courts next week

    So if she talks to another man in between time then is she in the wrong?

    Just talk to an attorney. You don't want him to take you to court to pay your part of rent or file on you for abandonment of financial stuff like credit card balances. See if you have Legal Aid in your town? Be smart. Don't date till it's all over legally.
