Same-sex marriage ends in divorce
The first same-sex couple to get married in Los Angeles are to get divorced, reports the Daily Mail.
Robin Tyler and Diane Olson were married for almost four years before filing for divorce. The two women had been together for 18 years, but had been unable to get married until 2008, when the ban on same-sex marriage was found to be unconstitutional by the California Supreme Court.
Following the court ruling, around 18,000 gay couples were married in California. Six months later, however, the state passed Proposition 8, which again banned same-sex marriage.
According to the Daily Mail, Proposition 8 has recently been overturned by the Federal Court of Appeals, making same-sex marriages once again legal in California.
