As of October 7, 2014, Colorado recognizes same-sex marriages. Now that same-sex marriage is acknowledged in Colorado, your rights under the Colorado Civil Union Act and under the Colorado Dissolution of Marriage Act are virtually identical, whether bound in matrimony or by civil union. Here is a link to more information: http://aclu-co.org/legislation/sb13-011-colorado-civil-union-act/

Currently several states do not recognize civil unions or same-sex marriages. As a result, it is important to understand the legal implications of your civil union or same-sex marriage should you decide to move out of state. Further, although the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was struck down as unconstitutional by the United States Supreme Court, a myriad of conflicts remain between the federal and state laws as they relate to the financial implications of a dissolution of a same-sex marriage or civil union.
