Dear 100 Hour Board,
My Question Here. I heard that you cannot teach at BYU or teach seminary or institute if you have ever been divorced. Is that true???

One of my favorite professors at BYU is divorced, so no, it's not true.
That's definitely not true for callings as seminary teacher (that is, unpaid and not full-time). For instance, there was a woman who taught early-morning seminary in one of the branches I served in on my mission (in the US) who was divorced, and hadn't remarried either.
If you wanted to teach as a full-time seminary or institute teacher, then, no, you cannot be divorced. Furthermore, if you're a man you have to be married and if you're a woman you can't have young children in the home. Also you have to go through a very long process to get hired. I'm pretty sure part of that training is how to be cheesy and make bad jokes, but I am unable to verify that.
