Some advocate for increased waiting periods in divorce

Boston family law observers might be interested in a recent article discussing the state of the institution of marriage and the rate of divorce in the U.S. today. According to figures from the U.S. Census, men in 1960 divorced at a rate of 1.8 percent, while the figure for women was 2.8 percent.

Former gubernatorial candidate could face difficult divorce

Boston residents likely remember Christy Mihos, who twice made unsuccessful attempts to become governor of Massachusetts in 2006 and 2010.

But because of the current status of the law, same-sex divorce is unique in a few respects that make it more difficult on the partners.
