It's illegal for this gay couple to get a divorce

In 2004, Rhode Island residents Cassandra Ormiston and Margaret Chambers drove to Massachusetts and got married. Two years later they decided to get a divorce. Unfortunately for them, the Rhode Island courts don't "recognize" the same-sex marriage and therefore won't give them a divorce. They can't get divorced in Massachusetts either because they're not residents. D'oh. Link.
