Required to Hear False Information – and Pay for It – in Order to Divorce?

Starting later this year, if you want to get a divorce in Oklahoma and you have kids younger than 18, you are going to have to take a course first, and pay for it yourself. Among the topics to be included in the course is “the effects divorce has on a child’s well-being.”

My guess is that Oklahomans are being forced to pay for propaganda. For many years, I have been scrutinizing claims about the supposed effects of divorce on children, and the implications for children of single parenting. Wildly exaggerated claims and misrepresentations of the actual data are rampant.

  1. It’s pretty disgusting to not only meddle in the personal lives of citizens, but essentially FORCE two people who don’t like each other to stay together.

  2. A good reason to stay out of Oklahoma. The conservative “family values” folks strike again.
    Having been married to a man who held a loaded gun on me I would have been obligated to stay with the SOB if I lived in OK. Remember the old days when if a man beat the crap out of his wife the police called it a “domestic dispute” and refused to interfere? I do and it looks like we’re headed that way again if the conservatives have their way. Pity.
