  • DENVER (AP) — Colorado’s first recognized same-sex divorce is final.

    Supporters of Colorado’s civil unions law say the court ruling means gay couples married in other states can legally terminate their relationships in the state without uprooting their lives.

    Juli Yim and Lorelei Jones wed in Massachusetts in 2009, where same-sex marriage is legal.

    Yim tells the Fort Collins Coloradoan the relationship went bad, and she found a new partner in Colorado.

    Colorado is one of several states that treat gay and straight couples the same in almost every respect through civil unions or domestic partnerships. Gay couples are not allowed to marry in Colorado but can get divorced under state statute.

    Gay rights advocates say some other states also grant divorces to gay couples who were married elsewhere.
