Same-sex marriage has been a hot-button issue for some time. The United States Supreme Court is expected to release rulings in the California Proposition 8 and federal Defense of Marriage Act cases this month. But, same-sex marriages may also end in divorce.
While the issue of same-sex marriage in California is temporarily somewhat in limbo in the absence of a Supreme Court decision, sources say that "Glee" actress Jane Lynch and her wife Lara Embry are expected to dissolve their three year marriage in California.
The two were married in 2010 in Massachusetts, but the two reside in California. Generally, residency in a state for at least one of the parties is a requirement to access state courts, and family law issues are a matter for state courts. Lynch reportedly announced Monday that she and her wife are splitting up.
