NY Judge to Approve First Same Sex Divorce
Although a gay couple cannot marry in the state of New York, they can divorce there. According to a recent ruling, a NY judge has refused to dismiss a divorce and child custody suit for a lesbian couple married in Canada. This is the first case of its kind, and will provide a landmark ruling in marriage laws. Essentially, NY State is recognizing the couple’s union to be legal and therefore dissolvable just like any heterosexual marriage. Abcnews.com covers the story of a ruling seen as a major step for gay marriage.
