I cannot conclude whether or not you would be sinning; that is only something you can decide after seeking the Lord’s direction for yourself.
For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others were made that way by men; and others have renounced marriage because of the kingdom of heaven.
The one who can accept this should accept it" (Matthew -12).

QUESTION: Would I be sinning to marry a divorced woman?
The woman I love left her ex-husband due to battery, not adultery.
I’ve read several passages in the Bible where our Lord Jesus Christ condemns marrying a divorcee.HE SAID: I have asked myself the same question over the years as I pursuing relationships with women who have been divorced; however you have already started down that road and face an even more difficult one.However, each of us must make a determination and choice on our own as to how He is speaking to you on the topic.The disciples said to him, "If this is the situation between a husband and wife, it is better not to marry." Jesus replied, "Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given.
Sadly, some reports now have “Christian” marriages ending even more often than “non-believers.” (Malachi -16).What God intricately joins together physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, separated (or ripped apart) by man can leave a scarring only He can heal and maybe that’s why He is so stringent on the topic. These are some pretty harsh words which are probably debated on both sides by mature, educated and knowledgeable believers.
