It wasn’t that long ago that same-sex marriage seemed like an impossibility. Now, though, same-sex couples can get married in six states and the District of Columbia (with two more states poised to finalize marriage equality laws), and nine other states have laws under which same-sex couples can enter into domestic partnerships or civil unions that are the legal equivalent of marriage. Any same-sex couple in America can travel to one of the marriage-equality states and tie the knot. But if a same-sex marriage doesn’t work out, what happens then? Some states that don’t recognize same-sex marriages also don’t recognize same-sex divorce—and residency requirements can make it difficult for couples to simply seek a divorce in another state. Add to that the tax complications that come with the lack of federal recognition of same-sex marriage, and marriage and divorce can be pretty complicated for same-sex couples.
