In the state of Washington, legal domestic partnerships were available to all couples for many years before marriage equality was enacted in 2012. These changes altered the legal status for many couples, and have caused some confusion for how same-sex relationships are treated under the law, especially when pertaining to things like divorce and separation, child support, and child custody.
