    Looks like just another failed attempt at bragging about being anti-gay and mocking SSM

    This. I can't figure out why these gay divorce stories keep popping up. Uh, yeah, I'm sure lots of gay couples will eventually divorce. Just like straight couples do. Pot, meet kettle.

    I don't think any gay couple goes into a marriage expecting it to be paradise. I do think they just want the chance to find out. That's not too much to ask.

    I was thinking the same thing. Are gay folks supposed to remain married forever or else be ridiculed? Seems rather narrow-minded.

    What gets me is that anybody is actually surprised. I guarantee you that the anti-gay marriage crusaders were probably waiting, with baited breath, for gay divorce. Almost like they want to rub it in the faces of the gay couples who are divorcing.

    Divorce is sad in any marriage, and to rub someone's face in it? That's just an awful way to be.

    Well I could have told them the truth without them having to experience the pain.

    Would you have listened if anybody tried to tell you? Nope, I can't imagine you would have. Most of us wouldn't.

    Seems kind of sad that you are dancing on the grave of a failed marriage.

    It must have been tough living under the scrutiny of folks just waiting for them to fail. That goes for their marriage and any marriage.
