this is whats on the web page
Q: When is my divorce final?
A: It is final the day you go to court and the divorce is granted. You are a single person once the judge pronounces you divorced. However, Oklahoma law prohibits remarriage or cohabitation with a third party for six months following the decree. Should you and your spouse decide to reconcile during this period, a joint application can be filed in the court and the decree will be set aside, so long as neither party has remarried a third party during the interim.

Ok, smart guy....
With all due respect to the Oklahoma Bar Association (which is not a state agency but rather, a voluntary membership organization), the quoted statement is wrong. You need to read the actual statute.
Section 43-123 of the Oklahoma Statutes provides as follows:
What this means is that two things are illegal. First, it's illegal to get married in Oklahoma to someone other than your former spouse within six months following the date of an Oklahoma divorce decree. Second, it is illegal to cohabit in Oklahoma with someone other than your former spouse whom you marry in state other than Oklahoma within six months following the date of an Oklahoma divorce.
As you have summarized the law, it would be illegal for a divorced person to move in with his/her parents or a sibling or a buddy from work. Such an onerous restriction on one's living arrangements would be unconstitutional.

First of all, remember that the only time it's illegal for a recently divorced person to cohabitate with someone else is where a marriage has occurred. The statute in question does not prohibit a recently divorced person from cohabitating with a person who is not his/her spouse.
As for what constitutes cohabitating under the statute, I cannot give you a hard and fast answer. It's going to be a factual inquiry that considers things like whether the person has his/her own dresser and keeps his/her clothes at the other person's house, how many days out of a month he/she stays there, whether he/she receives mail there, etc. I strongly suspect that very few, if any, local district attorneys would bother prosecuting someone for adultery under these circumstances.
