Rational pairs generalize the notion of rational singularities to reduced pairs (X, D). In this paper we deal with the problem of determining whether a normal variety X has a rationalizing divisor, i.e., a reduced divisor D such that (X, D) is a rational pair. We give a criterion for cones to have a rationalizing divisor, and relate the existence of such a divisor to the locus of rational singularities of a variety.
