Divorcing a woman thrice, becoming a kaafir and remarrying the same woman

Q: If a man divorced his wife thrice. And then he committed kufr and then he repented and became Muslim again. Can he marry the same woman without her marrying someone else?

A: No. She will have to marry someone else. A man should be ashamed of himself for even talking or contemplating about disbelief. What guarantee does he have that after comitting kufr he can ever come back into Islam safely.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
