Separation Agreement Enforced

"THE news earlier this month about how a New York court treated the dissolution of a gay relationship demonstrates how far gays have come in the struggle for marriage equality and how far we have yet to go. The court held that a separation agreement between two men was binding even though they were not married. This is an advance over earlier cases in which such agreements were sometimes deemed unenforceable. At the same time, it falls far short of marriage. The case sounds like a contracts question on the New York Bar Exam. . ." By Kenji Yoshino, N.Y. Times Link to Article (last visited 1-29-07 NVS)
