Said their spokesperson: “Julie and Hillary Goodridge are amicably living apart. As always their number one priority is raising their daughter, and like the other plaintiff couples in this case, they made an enormous contribution toward equal marriage. But they are no longer in the public eye, and request that their privacy be respected.” Of the significance of the split, she said, “I just think this really doesn’t say anything. Our families, like other families, can face tough times, with many making it through those moments, but some not.”
Out of 7,300 same-sex marriages since Massachusetts began allowing them in May 2004, there have been 45 divorces.
The Goodridges met 21 years ago as students at Harvard.
