If you mean for regular people, then it would be nearly impossible. As pretty much all Europeans at the time were Catholic, it probably would be very difficult and unheard of. However, if you were in the gentry, it might be more attainable, because of your influence. Royals at the time often had affairs, which could occasionally lead to a divorce.
