Same Sex Divorce
In this Nov. 5, 2013, photo, Lauren Beth Czekala-Chatham speaks at her Hernando, Miss., home, about her wanting the state to recognize her same-sex marriage in California, so she can now divorce that partner she lived with as a couple in DeSoto County, Miss., until they separated in 2010. "The idea you can't go to your local courthouse and file for divorce is very disruptive," said Peter Zupcofska, a Boston lawyer who has represented many gay and lesbian clients in marriage and divorce cases. "It's an enormous waste of effort and time." (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis)
