Same Sex Divorce
In this Nov. 5, 2013 photo, Dawn Jefferies, right, speaks in Hernando, Miss., about the efforts Lauren Beth Czekala-Chatham, left, has taken to get the state to recognize a same-sex marriage performed in California, so Czekala-Chatham can now divorce that partner she lived with as a couple in DeSoto County, until they separated in 2010. Even as the number of states legalizing same-sex marriage will soon grow to 16, most states--like Mississippi--refuse to recognize such unions or to help dissolve them. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis)
