The first ever divorce of a gay couple has been granted in Florida. A South Florida circuit judge, Dale Cohen, previously ruled the state's ban on same sex marriage was unconstitutional. Now he's allowed the first formal divorce of a gay couple. Cohen dissolved the marriage of Heather Brassner and Megan Lade who were united in a 2002 civil union in Vermont.
WOKV's legal analyst Mark Rubin says support for the rights of the LGBT community is taking off across America. "There is a wave of activism that is coming across the country."
Rubin believes former Supreme Court rulings will likely trickle down to Florida. In 2008, voters did not pass an amendment to legalize gay marriage in Florida but Rubin says a wave is coming. "As far as the courts are concerned, gay marriage is eventually going to be legal in Florida."
Attorney General Pam Bondi is expected to appeal that court ruling.
