Spouses get divorced for a variety of reasons. One reason is that one or both of the spouses wants to marry someone else.
Before either spouse can remarry, however, they must get a divorce. Once the divorce is finalized, both former spouses must wait at least 30 days before they can legally remarry. However, the 30-day waiting period can be waived by the divorce judge.

According to Texas divorce law, there is no such thing as legal separation. While this provision exists in other states, couples filing for divorce cannot be granted this status in Texas.
In some cases, spouses can be granted temporary orders in courts, in which some of the provisions may seem like a legal separation. However, spouses should realize that until the divorce is finalized they will continue to amass community property and debt.
