Am I a chaste or celibate person


I am legally divorced, applied for an annulment, no girlfriend, or intending to look for a relationship at this point, since I know I am still sacramentally married. What does this make me?


At this point, a lay person called to celibate chastity, by virtue of cirumstances permitted by God. This may be a transitory state only, depending on how God’s Will unfolds in the future.
