My husband and I have been separated for almost 6 years. We live in separate states but a divorce was never finalized. Now I find myself getting remarried and have set the divorce in motion. However, circumstances make waiting 6 months after the divorce is final problematic. Can this waiting period be waived?
You cannot get married in Oklahoma until 6 months after the divorce (dissolution of marriage) is final, so long as your spouse is alive (unless you are remarrying your spouse, but that's another subject). However, there is case law in Oklahoma stating that a marriage conducted in another state during the statute's six-month prohibition against remarriage is valid. Cities in bordering states such as Branson, Missouri and Eureka Springs, Arkansas offer weekend wedding packages.
