Is this correct? A: You can't love me. We're both taken. You have a fiancee. I am married. B: But you're getting divorced and I'm not married yet. I'll wait for the day you're free. Are "We're both taken" and "..you're free" correct? Thank you

Yes, both are correct. "We're both taken" is an idiom meaning that we aren't free ( one has a spouse, the other a fiancee). In this context, 'the day' functions as a time conjunction equivalent to 'when', so you need a present tense.

'We're both taken' and 'you're free' are both correct and natural.
