Maryland Recognizes Out-Of-State Gay Marriages Prior To Their Own Equality Act

May 22, 2012 | Divorce Law, Family Law

Maryland’s highest court has ruled that although Maryland’s Equality Act isn’t set to go into effect until next year, a gay couple that has been married out of state can legally file for divorce here.

The seven state Court of Appeals justices unanimously decided that “a valid out-of-state same-sex marriage should be treated by Maryland as worthy of divorce.”
