Same Sex Divorce

When the Supreme Court ruled in favor of same sex marriages, the country took a huge step forward toward true equality for same sex couples. But is it the same for same sex divorce, and are divorce rules the same for all? If we have marriage equality, then we should also have divorce equality. The Supreme Court’s ruling has really made a lot of progress in that regard. Before that, if a couple moved to a state where their same sex marriage wasn’t recognized, they couldn’t get a divorce in that state. But now the rules for same sex divorce are more aligned with the rules for opposite sex divorce. Of course we are not condoning divorce in any way, especially if there are children involved – in that case it is especially important that a couple go see their faith-based counselor. But sometimes divorce is the very last resort for a couple who don’t see any other options. And in this case, it should not matter if the couple is gay or straight: the rules should be same for all.
