Supreme Court case will affect Massachusetts same sex couples

There has been much media hype over the pair of cases dealing with same sex marriage that were before the U.S. Supreme Court this week. The challenge to California's "Proposition 8," the voter initiative that banned same sex marriage in that state, has garnered a majority of the attention. But here in Massachusetts, same sex marriage has been the law since 2003. The second case, challenging the Federal Defense of Marriage Act, will likely be much more consequential for a same sex couple that is living here in Massachusetts.

Divorce difficulties for same-sex couples

Same-sex couples have been able to legally marry in Massachusetts for quite a few years now. Even though more states have legalized same-sex marriage in recent years, there are still issues that arise for divorcing same-sex couples that heterosexual couples do not have to deal with.
