    From the article
    The law office’s website says it is “proud to be the first law firm in the U.S. to practice in the field of gay divorce, providing Private Client Domestic Services, 24/7 and coast to coast, regardless of your sexual orientation.

With gay couples, the court is forced to rely on facts rather than assumptions. If there's a carryover effect to heterosexuals, gay divorce might become the best thing in a long time for divorced heterosexual fathers who seek primary custody.
    Agreed. This needs to change anyway, it has not been, nor is it still, fair to men. So the new explorations into this legal aspect of child custody should benefit society in general.

    So, more government discrimination.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Wait, isn't marriage laws the same for everyone now? If so why the need for specialist in "gay divorce". Will gay divorce lawyers refuse to take divorce cases between a man and women? Oh wait, that was a baker refusing to make a cake for a same sex couple.
    I think there will be problems that will differ from hetero divorces.

    A lot of those will involve the children.
