Glee actress Jane Lynch has announced that she and Dr. Lara Embry, her wife of just over 3 years, are filing for divorce. The two were married in a small and intimate ceremony in May 2010 in Sunderland, Massachusetts.
Following in the steps of other celebrities, as well as political leaders like Vladimir Putin, Lynch and Embry are requesting that their right to privacy be honored during this life changing time. Perhaps they will ask the court to seal their case in an attempt to prevent the public from learning the intimate details of their divorce?
Same sex marriages are not yet legal or recognized in every state, and marriage equality is a hot button issue for many people. It is important to note that same sex divorces are handled in the exact same was a heterosexual divorce; however, they have the potential to be more emotionally taxing on the couple involved. Additionally, there are a few other factors to consider while filing for a same sex divorce.
