Till the time your Divorce proceedings are pending in Court, whether its Contested or Mutual Consent Divorce, you cannot legally marry another person. As a matter of fact, you cannot marry again till the expiry of 6 months from the date of Divorce. *I'm assuming that parties are governed by Hindu Marriage Act.
