Generally speaking, there are two established grounds for the dissolution of gay marriages (also called "civil unions"):
1. The marriage can be determined as "irretrievably broken."
2. One of the members of the couple is determined to be "mentally incompetent."
Keep in mind that your local laws may have slight variations on these two grounds. Your attorney will be able to guide you toward the proper direction for the grounds of your divorce at your first meeting with him/her, based on your explanation of the reasons you and your partner are separating.
