    I am calling right now that the husband is in the closet. The sad thing is his wife was dumb enough to fall for it.

    In light of this new info, and to emphasize this couple's righteous indignation, I have corrected your post.

    Normally maybe, but with this couple they claim they are anti gay marriage 110% so he will most likely not link up with someone of the other sex but maybe that is why he is divorcing his wife so he can marry his boyfriend.

    The outcome of this scenario is probably dependent----as referenced in your first post--- on the amount of beer chugged and his ability to "walk straight".

    None of the choices suit me.

    No, because I am more than happy for gays to be able to marry. And besides that, how in the hell does that do anything other than make my own life more difficult?

    Logic: this couple lacks it.

    Someone should tell the bright couple that by filing for a divorce they actually are recognizing the government's regulation of marriage.

    So they will turn their backs on everything they believe in because of SSM? What idiots.

    It distances the fact that they had the same last name and same parents to those that do not know their history... ask spud.

    Yup, they think that giving up on their marriage is the reasonable response to gay marriage. They married in a baptist church. They are not turning their back on state recognized marriage, they are turning their back on their own churches marriage license and blessing.

    Stupid IMHO, that is cutting off your nose to spite your face. That is just nonsense.

    I'm married and I don't plan to divorce my husband for any reason.

    I support the idea of anyone who is of legal age getting married. Marry your brother, your partner, 6 women....it isn't my business and it shouldn't be anyone else's.

    That said, if they want to divorce for any reason, that's up to them. Not my business.
