BEXAR COUNTY, TX – While hundreds of same-sex couples rushed to court houses to get hitched after last week’s Supreme Court ruling, one same-sex couple is headed to court for a different reason, to ditch their marriage.

Allison Flood Lesh and Kristi Lesh got married in Washington, D.C. in 2010, and had been waiting to get a divorce for the past two years.

One small problem left them in limbo.  Before June 26, same-sex marriage wasn’t recognized by the state of Texas, so that means a same-sex divorce was out of the question.

Now that divorce is an option, Allison is in a custody battle over their three-year-old daughter, who was born in Texas by artificial insemination.

Having two mommies can be confusing, and from the sounds of it this whole divorce process is too. The court stepped in and was able to help this mom work out what she needed to, at the end of her rainbow.
