DescriptionHouse Bill 2279 Would Restrict Incompatibility As Grounds For Divorce

POSTED: 11:41 am CST January 4, 2010

OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma state legislator plans to introduce an act that would make some divorces illegal.

Scheduled for introduction in the 2010 legislative session by state Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma City, House Bill 2279 would restrict the "use of incompatibility as a ground for divorce" in Oklahoma.

The bill would not allow for divorce on the basis of incompatibility if:

* There are living minor children of the marriage
* The parties have been married 10 years or longer
* Either party files a written objection to the granting of a divorce

If passed, the act would become effective on Nov. 1.
