What you should know about same-sex divorce in Canada

Although gay marriage has been legal in Canada since 2005, the divorce process for same-sex marriages, or rather, gay marriage did not completely catch up with Canada's progressively more forward thinking laws until 2013. Until that time, a Canadian divorce was only available for couples if one spouse lived in Canada for a period of at least one year.

Marriage contracts are not 1 size fits all

A marriage contract, or rather, a prenuptial agreement is a legal document that is used to resolve issues that may arise involving finances and property division in the event that there is a "marital breakdown" or what is formally known as a divorce. Since the contract is drawn up prior to the wedding, it can sometimes be a source of emotional stress and anxiety for a couple. However, with care and consideration, it can help to ensure that in the event the marriage does not work out, there is an overall fairness for both sides.
