If your divorce in Oklahoma required a six-month waiting period and you remarried two months later is the second marriage legal?

As long as you remarried in another state it is legal. The Oklahoma divorce law states that you may not remarry for six months, IN THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA. Plenty of people, primarily military, remarry the same week in other states. Unless that state has a law preventing you from remarrying until a certain amount of time has elapsed after a divorce, the marriage is legal. REMARRIAGE AFTER DIVORCE: It shall be unlawful for either party to an action for divorce whose former husband or wife is living to marry in this state a person other than the divorced spouse within six (6) months from date of decree of divorce granted in this state. [Based on Oklahoma Statutes; Title 43, Section 123]

You are not able to get remarried before your divorce is final. If you do remarry before that, then your marriage will not be legal.

The term is "remarried" (marriage is a noun, not a verb).

Oklahoma statutes, while prohibiting a marriage of either party to a divorce for 6 months after the rendition of the decree, does not declare such marriage invalid. Any marriage contracted in Oklahoma within 6 months after a divorce decree was granted is valid unless set aside. A marriage entered into outside of Oklahoma within the 6-month period would be held to be voidable by the courts of Oklahoma and valid by the courts of other States as the prohibition has no extraterritorial effect. Yes the period is one year.

If your marriage was never registered, then your marriage is not legal in the eyes of the court. You need to get remarried right away if you choose.

After her first marriage to Raymond Parks ended following his death in 1977, she never remarried. She was only married once.
