LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) A Raymond woman who married her same-sex partner five years ago in Iowa is now petitioning the Nebraska Supreme Court to be allowed to divorce.

Margie and Bonnie Nichols married in 2009. But when they filed for divorce last year, a Lancaster County District Court judge dismissed their petition, saying the court could not grant the divorce without recognizing the marriage.

The Nichols' case currently is before the state Court of Appeals.
