Three Myths About Same-Sex Divorce
Divorce myths have always been a problem, but they can be especially harmful to same-sex couples. It is important to debunk some of the myths regarding divorce for same-sex couples. Ms. Hudson has a vast knowledge of the LGBTQ+ community and can help you navigate these waters with ease and confidence.
Myth #1: People in same-sex marriages are more likely to divorce
You and your partner may be the same as heterosexual married couples when it comes to commitment, satisfaction and how long you stay together over time. In some situations, the exact opposite of this myth is true: gay men and lesbians tend to stay committed longer than heterosexual couples. There are many reasons you might want to divorce, just as there are for heterosexual couples, so the idea that you are more likely to divorce just because you are in a same-sex relationship is not true.
Myth #2: Same-sex divorce is more expensive
You may worry concerned that you will spend extra money to legally dissolve your relationship if you are in a same-sex marriage. Thankfully, same-sex divorces cost the same as opposite-sex divorces in most cases. The cost is largely the same because the process you go through to dissolve a same-sex marriage is not significantly different.
Myth #3: Same-sex divorce is difficult
As a member of the LGBTQ community, you might assume that you must go through a lot of trouble when you want to get divorced. However, you might be surprised that the law treats same-sex couples the same as heterosexual couples in the vast majority of cases. The process can be resolved amicably and easily, just as with heterosexual couples
