cohen marrying childless divorcee

Question
Can a mature Cohen marry a divorcee if she is past her childbearing years?
Answer
The prohibition of a cohen marrying a divorcee is not because of the offspring which may result of such a union, who would be considered "chalalim", but because of the restrictions placed on the cohen due to his special lineage which made him especially holy.
