Last week the federal government introduced C-32, the Civil Marriage of Non-Residents Act, prompted by the same-sex divorce case of a lesbian couple. While the proposal makes it even clearer that such couples are validly married and always were, it establishes different divorce procedures for same-sex couples in a way that is highly problematic.
