As you probably know, the divorced and remarried have a choice. Either get divorced or remarry. For Catholics who follow the Church’s teaching on same-sex relationships, this decision is based on the Church’s teaching on marital relationship.
In the United States, the Catholic Church teaches that marriage is a lifelong union of one man and one woman. However, Catholic traditions have historically taught that all persons with the proper attitude and intention, can choose the next step in their lives.

Can a divorced Catholic remarried? Can the Catholic Church marry me?
When the Church allows a person to marry someone from another religion or with a different faith, it follows the same rules it uses for inter-religious marriages. Both marriage and family are sacramental relationships that must be respected.

This does not change the marriage status of the couple, which is governed by the church’s laws about marriage and the Church’s doctrine on same-sex relationships.

In addition to this, one of the main reasons that civil partnerships are taken is due to the fact that civil spouses might receive tax benefits (including tax-free benefits under the law) that could prevent them from keeping the rest of their own cash and property.
