Same-sex couple behind California lawsuit has filed for divorce
The lesbian couple responsible for the filing of a lawsuit against the state of California regarding same-sex marriage has filed for divorce. The women have been deemed advocates in the fight for gay and lesbian civil rights in California.
The lawsuit triggered the downfall of the ban against same-sex marriage. The women, who had dated for 14 years prior to the uplifting of the ban, were among the first couples to officially marry in California.
They have now decided to go their own ways, and are filing for divorce. They don’t want this divorce filing being labeled as a gay divorce, because they believe their divorce is just as normal as everyone else who files for one. The women respect one another and hope to be friends in the future.
