Sex change causes controversy for divorcing couple

The topic of same-sex marriage has been a popular discussion piece in the U.S. for some time now. Many states support same-sex unions, while others have outright bans against gays and lesbians getting married.

When divorce comes for these marriages, a custody agreement must be reached for any kids who are involved in the relationship.
