How long until I can get remarried after my divorce in Oklahoma?

Question:
How long do I have to wait after my divorce to marry someone else?
Answer:

Title 43 sec 123 of the oklahoma statutes states that it is unlawful to remarry someone,in this state, other than your former spouse within 6 months from the date of decree of divorce.  If you go out of state to get married , the statute says it is illegal to cohabit with that person in the state of oklahoma.  So, technically you could go to another state and get married you just can’t legally live with that person in oklahoma.  The statute makes it a felony to get married in this state to another person or to cohabit with that person in this state within 6 months of your divorce.
