If you are only separated and have not filed for divorce, then you are still married. There is no need to get remarried as you are not yet divorced.

If they were merely separated, they are still married. If they want to reconcile, they can, and there would be no reason or need for them to re-marry. They could re-marry if they wish, for emotional purposes, i.e., to re-cement their vows and marriage, but their official date of marriage would be their original date of marriage - important for derivative Social Security benefits.

No need to get remarried as you have not divorced yet. Only possible hang up would be if you filed for legal separation with the court. If you did, you merely need to file paperwork with the court revoking the legal separation.

If your divorce was not finalized, there is no need to get remarried. You can reconcile and file a Request for Dismissal of the pending dissolution case.

If you've not yet filed for divorce (as stated in your question), then you're not divorced. If not divorced, then you don't need to get remarried. I.e., you're already, and still married!
