Maryland's highest court has issued a ruling recognizing divorce for valid out-of-state same-sex marriages. The Court of Appeals issued the ruling Friday. The ruling says Maryland courts should withhold recognition of a valid foreign marriage only if that marriage is “repugnant” to state public policy. The court says the threshold is a high bar that has not been met in the case that it ruled on. The case involved two women who were married in California and denied a divorce in 2010 by a Maryland judge who said their marriage was not valid in the state.
