Divorce for Gay Couples Still Legal in California

Gay and lesbian couples who took advantage of California’s brief fling with gay marriage last year to tie the knot, but now can’t stand the sight of one another, will be relieved to hear that gay divorce remains an option. Also, because most gay couples who’ve married thus far had already been together for many years, the divorce rate for gay couples is still low, says Evan Wolfson, founder of Freedom to Marry. “I expect that, over time, gay people will probably have the same rate of [marriage] failure as non-gay people,” says Wolfson. “And that’s part of the point. People should be treated equally.” [link]
