WHAT WE’RE WATCHING

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY – Today marks five years since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in Obergefell v. Hodges and, as Angela Morris reports, a lot has changed for family lawyers in that time. For one thing, they’re drafting more premarital agreements than ever. Why? Because, as Philadelphia lawyer Angela Giampolo explains, same-sex couples have been paying attention. “We’ve been watching straight people mess it up for 300 years. We are not immune to divorce,” she said. “Due to the fact we were just given this right five years ago, the people getting married tend to be older, and they tend to have assets.”
