In this article, Professor Tracy Thomas examines the various ways in which states address same-sex divorce, and highlights the different reasoning that courts have employed to allow same-sex couples to dissolve their unions, even in states that do not recognize same-sex marriage.
Professor Fredrick Vars criticizes the Supreme Court's recent decision in Metrish v. Lancaster.
