No, they won't; and in any event, it does not matter. All that matters is that you are legally eligible to marry now. Assuming that you are of age and are mentally competent, then the only issue is whether you are single or married to someone else. If you are not currently married to anyone else, it doesn't matter if you were divorced in March or April or May, etc.
