There has been a lot of coverage lately in the media regarding same-sex marriage. As more and more states around the country legalize same-sex marriage, many same-sex couples are taking advantage of the opportunity, including right here in Oregon. Just as with heterosexual marriage, divorce is also an issue with same-sex couples, but it can be more complicated.
Not all states recognize same-sex marriage, which means that same-sex couples that have married in other states but live in states that don’t recognize their marriage have been unable to divorce
Now that same-sex marriage is legal in Oregon, it will be interesting to see how the recent ruling affects those same-sex couples that have been waiting to divorce.
