Same-sex marriage confusion has couples wary of what happens next

From Globe and Mail

Ever since same-sex couples were allowed to marry here, Canada has gained a special status among gays and lesbians.

Then came news this week that the Canadian government is arguing that same-sex marriages of non-residents are legal only if they are also valid in the couple’s home country. The Department of Justice also contends that couples who came to Canada to be married must live here for at least a year before they can obtain a divorce.
