I am one that has practiced this for several years, and plan to practice it until death do us part.

And any flirting or dating would be sinful for me, so that's off limits.

I actually posted some comments about this topic a few months ago:

I don't have to worry about this because I won't get married again since, as a man, I incur all the liability in a marriage and receive no benefit from a legal standpoint. Issue solved. Thanks, American legal system, for helping me stay true to god's command.

Unless there was adultery / sexual imorality on the part of the spouse - then according to the bible and Jesus the person is allowed to divorce their wife/husband.

I have a friend who is Greek and when he got divorced he had to go to his church and get some special pardon or he wouldn't even be able to be a godfather.

I'm catholic and if I wanted to get remarried I'd definitely consult with a priest to make sure that I remain in good standing with the church by following their guidelines.
