''To grant the divorce here is not against public policy. It's consistent with the strong marriage recognition principles that have been practiced since the 1800s.''
New Jersey State Superior Court Judge Mary Jacobson ruling favorably in the case of two lesbians, La Kia and Kinyati Hammond, who were married in Canada in 2004 but were seeking a divorce in New Jersey. The judge stated, though, that the New Jersey does not have to recognize same-sex marriages in other contexts. One of the lesbians in the case is seeking to finalize their divorce so she can marry another woman in Canada. (Associated Press via The Examiner)
