Divorce in the US: Oklahomans unite!!

Commenting on James Q. Wilson's report that Oklahoma is the divorce capital of the US, John Wonder says: "From the short period of time I spent in Oklahoma, I would say the principal reason for divorce is boredom. It is really a desolate place, both physically and socially. The inhabitants, however, seem to like it that way. The movie "Thelma and Louise" was pretty close to the truth". I regret that I have not seen that movie, and Oklahoma is one of only two US states I do not know. All I can say in my ignorance is: "Oklahomans of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your wives!
