Same-sex couples in Maryland are fortunate. Since Maryland now allows same-sex marriage, not only are all of those couples on an equal footing with all other couples in the state, but they share equally in the benefits that Maryland bestows via its divorce statutes, and can be granted a same-sex divorce.
If you don't believe divorce is a benefit, ask a member of a same-sex marriage, and who wants a divorce but lives in a state that doesn't recognize their marriage. It is a real benefit.
As more states authorize same-sex marriage, the problems caused by the disconnect by the refusal of some states to recognize same-sex marriage will compound.
