I understand that you are in a difficult situation.

However, it is not permissible for you to seek marriage with another man unless your divorce with your current husband is final. Once your divorce is final with your current husband and you have completed your Iddah then you may talk to another man who is seriously interested in marrying you.

I pray that Allah makes this transition easy for you. Aameen

And Allah knows best.
