When you became a Christian, you were forgiven for all your sins. You are a new creation. If your former spouse is a Christian and still single, perhaps reconciliation is a possibility. If your former spouse is not a Christian, you actually shouldn't seek reconciliation because they are not a Christian. I would think that based upon Paul's teaching in I Corinthians 7, specifically where if an unbelieving spouse wishes to divorce a believing spouse that the believing spouse is both able to get the divorce AND remarry that you should consider yourself free to seek a Christian spouse now that you have a relationship with Christ.
Remarriage after divorce is not always adutlery. There is clearly one instance at least that it is not. And that is if one of the partners dies after the divorce. I wrote this answer to a Christian couple who were counseling 2 people thinking of remarriage. Lee Ann told me it was a wonderful answer. Here it is: " For the married woman is bound by law to her husband while he is living; but if her husband dies, she is released from the law concerning the husband. So then, if while her husband is living she is joined to another man, she shall be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is free from the law, so that she is not an adulteress though she is joined to another man." Romans 7:2-3 (NASB) "But if she marries another man while he is alive, she commits adultery and becomes an adulteress. When he dies she is no longer an adulteress." Paul’s message is that the marital relationship is broken when a spouse dies. So that would free up the others to remarry.
