As much as I support same-sex marriage equality, this ruling makes complete sense. If Mississippi doesn't recognize the marriage, then it should not/cannot grant a divorce. There should, however, be a nationwide standard, because of situations like this (or in the cases where the married couple is required to move to states where their marriages aren't recognized, like a marriage involving active military).
