Dissolution of both same-sex marriages and civil unions are subject to the same laws as heterosexual marriages. Remember the days of commitment ceremonies and promise rings?
Even though you never went down to the courthouse and got a marriage license, you and your partner may still be considered common law married under Colorado law.
