Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) and Wisconsin Public Service Commissioner Lauren Azar are ending their 15-year domestic partnership, according to a statement from Baldwin’s office.
In 2009, Baldwin and Azar were one of the first couples to register their same-sex partnership with the state’s domestic partnership registry. The statement said that domestic partnership will be legally terminated.
According to a spokeswoman, “neither Tammy nor Lauren will have any further public comment on this very private matter.”
