Couple Seeking Same-Sex Divorce in Kentucky

Updated: Monday, November 4 2013, 06:45 PM EST
JEFFERSON, Ky. (WKRC) -- A same-sex couple who married in Massachusetts is seeking a divorce in Kentucky.

The case presents a dilemma because Kentucky does not recognize gay marriage.  Judges and divorce lawyers tell the Courier Journal that the case filed in Jefferson Family Court involving Alysha Romero and Rebecca Sue Romero is the first of its kind in the state.

An attorney for one of the women says they should be allowed to part ways in Kentucky instead of having to move back to Massachusetts for divorce proceedings.

But both opponents and supporters of gay marriage say the court's only choice is to dismiss the petition because Kentucky law bans gay marriage and the recognition of such marriages. Couple Seeking Same-Sex Divorce in Kentucky
