Maryland’s highest court ruled Friday that same-sex couples can divorce in the state even though Maryland does not yet permit marriages for same-sex couples.

The Court of Appeals ruled 7-0 that couples who have a valid marriage from another state can divorce in Maryland. The case involved two women who were married in California and denied a divorce in 2010 by a Maryland judge.
