Gay Divorce

It has started in Massachusetts.  Seven months ago they recognized gay marriage.  Now they are having to process some gay divorces. Ah, well...

Where there is gay marriage, of course
There will be gay divorce.

But here's my legal question du jour. Suppose a gay couple gets legally married in Mass, then moves to Alabama, then wants to break up their relationship. Well, in Alabama, they're not married, so they can't get divorced. Do they need to go back to Mass to get divorced?

There's an old movie, The Gay Divorcee. But it has nothing to do with this topic!
