D-I-V-O-R-C-E

Conditions are ripe for marital strife in Oklahoma, where divorce comes sweeping down the plains.


Features

Malena Lott
Love may be a many-splendored thing, but in Oklahoma, love often turns into a country song, à la Tammy Wynette’s 1968 No. 1 hit, “D-I-V-O-R-C-E.” Unfortunately for Oklahoma, as the decades roll by, the state can’t seem to get out of the top-five ranking for highest divorce rates in the U.

The Right to Love: An American Family

A documentary follows one gay couple’s fight for ‘The Right to Love.’


Documentary

Rod Lott
Just handfuls of hours ago, as part of Election Day, the Senate gained its first openly gay senator. Even to a heterosexual male like me, the win of Wisconsin’s Tammy Baldwin is an encouraging step that our country is slowly starting to accept that we aren’t all alike, that differences should be celebrated, rather than feared.

Hope Springs

And yet it also falls flat.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Meryl Streep is in a rut — not the actress, who's arguably still atop her game in her fifth decade of screen stardom, but the character she plays in Hope Springs. Long married to frowny sad sack Arnold (Lincoln's Tommy Lee Jones, not exactly stretching), Kay feels more like a roommate than a wife. They don't even share a bedroom any more.

The marrying kind


CFN

Gazette staff
People have been getting hitched for centuries. You know the drill: The bride and groom recite vows, sign a contract and voilà! But that’s just not enough for state Sen. Josh Brecheen, R-Coalgate, whose Senate Bill 105 seeks to make “covenant marriage” a legally recognized option.

An affair to remember ... or several


CFN

Gazette staff
Speaking of the Bible Belt — just go with us here — it appears that sometimes those belts are unbuckled hurriedly so that pants can slide off and wind up in a crumpled heap with a bra and panties on the stained carpet of a room at Motel 6.

How to Save a Marriage and Ruin Your Life

And ogle Stella Stevens in the process.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Coming at the tail end of Hollywood’s innocence, 1968’s How to Save a Marriage and Ruin Your Life is one of those old-school romantic comedies that indulges in such outdated notions that a woman’s place is in the home.
