Only in Iran.

It seems that a university in an Iranian provence is establishing a policy in which teachers who divorce their spouses will get fired.

This shows how blind devotion to fundamentalist tenets can lead to absurd and offensive results.

Ooops?  Did I say IranI meant Oklahoma:

EDMOND, Okla. — An Oklahoma university has proposed a policy that would allow them to fire people who get a divorce.

Oklahoma Christian University is already getting some attention for a letter it sent to faculty that stated:

"Because the Christian mission of the university is most effectively fulfilled through mentoring and example, all married faculty and staff should strive to model (healthy) marriages to students."

University president Mike O’Neal said this doesn’t mean everyone who gets a divorce would lose his or her job. He said the university would look at each individual case.
