What does the Bible say about remaining in a second marriage after a person becomes a Christian?

What happens when one spouse commits adultery, divorces and then remarries someone else...and then becomes a Christian.  Are they permitted to stay in that adulterous marriage?

I was married to an unbeliever 24years. He committed adultery and abuses all along. 3 children were damaged thru all this. I asked God to forgive my sin because there are always 2sides. I was a virtuous woman and God blessed me with a wonderful remarriage. 28 yrs now. God of second chances

Remarriage is not allowed as long as one's ex-spouse is alive. Whoever remarries after divorcing his or her spouse is committing adultery so says the word of God. Anybody in a second marriage should do restitution by terminating the ungodly relationship.
