    This is a really good thread! I didn’t do a Destination Wedding, so it never occured to me to think of it, but this is something really important!

    We officially got married in the US before our wedding in Mexico, so no.

    If you legally marry in another country, but reside in the US, I don’t think the marriage country should matter.  It’s where you are when you divorce that counts. Sort of like if you marry in one state but reside in another, the state you reside in should govern the divorce.

    @H216scrf: This.  It doesn’t matter where you got married.  When getting divorced, you file in the state in which you reside.

    The lesbian couple having difficulty divorcing only applies to gay couples who are divorcing in a state where gay marriage is not legal because they don’t recognize them as being married in the first place. While I disagree with that completely, that is a separate issue.

    For straight couples, your marriage is recognized as legal in the US so a divorce will apply. You would file for divorce in the state in which you reside so it doesn’t matter where you got married.
