The December 14, 2009 issue of the Connecticut Law Tribune featured an article written by veteran reporter, Douglas S. Malan focusing on what the legal community has seen since same-sex marriage was legalized in Connecticut in November, 2008. The article includes interviews with several lawyers who work with the gay and lesbian community (including yours truly).
Virtually every lawyer interviewed addressed the problems that still exists, even in the aftermath. They include the non-recognition of gay and lesbian marriages in states that have not yet legalized marriages for same-sex couples, the barriers caused by DOMA (the federal Defense of Marriage Act which defines marriage as between one man and one women), and the difficulties faced by same-sex couples who reside in other states who wish to obtain a divorce.
