Candles for Divorced Man

Does a divorced man have to light candles on erev shabbos or yom tov.

Answer:

Yes, a divorced man who lives alone needs to light his own candles for Shabbos and for Yom Tov.

Although the custom is that the lady of the house does the lighting, the obligation of honoring the Shabbos with light (candles) applies to men just as to women.

Best wishes.
