Answer: Yes, a divorced woman canbecome a nun so long as the followining requirements were met (they are the same for a divorced man who wants to become a monk): (1) An annulment has been granted (2) There are no legal or financial obligations towards the former spouse or children e.g. if there were children who were classified as minors, permission would not be granted to become a nun. If a man had financial obligations towards children, he could not become a monk.
