age of consent?
if the age of consent were raised say tomorrow or next month, would all those people in now illegal sexual relationships have to divorce or become abstinate or would they be exempt

Changes in the law that affect many people usually never apply to people already in a relationship because it would be cruel and inhumane to do that. It would be unconstitutional and invalid to make it apply retroactively.

Divorce wouldn't apply. Age of consent doesn't apply to legally married couples.

This depends on the way the specific legislation is worded
