Gay Couple Makes History by Filing for Joint Bankruptcy Help

A gay couple in Florida has made national waves by attempting to file for joint bankruptcy in Florida, which does not recognize the validity of their marriage, according to a CNBC report. Sources say Daniel Maltbie and Garry Houston were married in Vermont, but currently live in Florida, which does not acknowledge same-sex marriage. But when the couple fell behind on mortgage payments and attempted to file for bankruptcy, a Florida bankruptcy court questioned whether they were eligible for the same joint bankruptcy benefits as other married couples.
