I am not sure if my friend is mistaken. She is an American and was married to a Canadian for 10 years. They divorced over two years ago. Now she wants to remarry. Her future husband is an American who happens to work in Canada. She was told that she has to be divorced at least 5 years before she can remarry. I've never heard of that law! Is it only because she wants to marry an American, or would that apply to her marrying a Canadian, as well?
