Kentucky (27)

Filing fee: $148

In Kentucky, you can continue to live together during the two-month required separation period before filing for a divorce, so long as you abstain from sexual activity. As the state puts it: "Living apart shall include living under the same roof without sexual cohabitation." The median age at first marriage is 26.1 and those marriages tend to last 22.8 years.
