In all US states, the person wishing to marry must wait until the final divorce decree has been granted. In addition, several US states also have a required waiting period between the date a divorce is finalized and the date either party may remarry.

How long should you wait until you ask her out when she has recently had a divorce?

I would say it would depend on wheter she filed the divorce or it was filed on her. If she filed it, I would say at least a few weeks or so just in case it's not final or there is moving arrangements going on. If it was filed on her maybe a month at tops because she might take a bit to recover and again there may be arrangements going on. Hope it helps, but just be sure you stay in contact with her and be sure she likes you.

What do you do when you have been separated from your husband for 4 years and you both have a child together and now his best friend says he wants to marry you?

First off, if you are just separated and haven't filed for divorce then you are still married. The question is ....'do you want to marry him or get back together with him?' If he feels this way he should have sent his friend as the messenger. This isn't a good start in a relationship. He should have the courage to phone you, meet with you and express how he feels and then you are going to have to decide if you want to marry him or not.
