Israel Grants Same-Sex Divorce for Couples Before Same-Sex Marriage

A Tel Aviv court has granted the very first divorce for a same-sex couple, a move many have declared ironic due to Israel not performing same-sex marriages. Lawmaker Uzi Even and his partner of 23 years, Amit Kama, are the first same-sex couple to have been granted a divorce in the Jewish state. Although same-sex marriages are performed in the country, they have no legal status, making the act relatively null. Kama went on to declare that the move is the forefront for Israel to officially recognize same-sex marriage despite the nation holding strong conservative family values.
