On July 24, 2011, New York became the sixth state to legalize same sex marriage under the Marriage Equality Act. While this gave gay and lesbian couples the opportunity to marry, it will also opened them up to divorce. Legally, same sex divorces are exactly the same as heterosexual divorces. They encompass the same issues and concerns, such as property division, spousal support, child custody, child support and visitation. Emotionally, however, they are not exactly the same. Just as no two relationships can ever be the same, there are nuances involved in gay and lesbian divorces which require sensitivity and sophistication to recognize and address.
