Dividing Property Of Long-Term Couples
Because gay marriage is a new development in Minnesota, there may be circumstances when a couple who have been together for years gets married and then divorced not long afterward.
Situations like these could pose special challenges for property division. That’s because the law makes allowances for individuals to keep property and assets that they alone brought into the marriage.
For gay couples who have lived together for years, however, the question of separate property versus communal property becomes more complicated.
