You take the New, I'll take the Jersey -- we'll split the turnpike

by Jeremy Hooper

jersey-divorceJersey may stop short of performing full same-sex marriages, with the Garden State instead forcing gays to get in the alternate civil unions line. But should your out-of-state 'mo marriage go awry, it seems more likely that you'll be able to dissolve the bond without leaving the privacy of your own township:

Judge: Pair married in Canada can divorce in NJ [AP via Google]

It remains to be seen what implications this ruling will have on marriage equality in the state (or if the state will appeal it). But we sincerely hope it'll be used to divorce the state's currently entwined concepts of separate & equal, as there are far too many irreconcilable differences in that union to ever have lasting success.
