With gay marriage legalized in some states it was only a matter of time before this was going to happen.

I don't think anyone who is married should have to live in a specific area to get divorced. I guess it's not an issue for straight couples because everywhere they live they are allowed to be married and divorced.

That's exactly the point. It is kind of hard for the court to authorize a legal dissolution when they do not consider the union to be legally authorized to begin with.
