California Passes Divorce Law For Same-Sex Couples

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has signed a law that will allow same-sex couples “who married in the state but now reside in another — one that doesn’t recognize same-sex marriage — recognition of divorce.” The law stipulates that “if a couple got married in California but lives in a state that won’t grant them a divorce (which is presumed if the state doesn’t recognize their marriage), the California court will have jurisdiction to grant them a dissolution.”
