    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.
    Sure, if they want a divorce, go for it.

    But to go to the media and, to some extent morally blackmail society, by such a stupid intention, is just insane IMHO.

    People divorce for loads of reasons. My mom was divorced twice for proper reasons, this is not a grounds for divorce IMHO.

    No, I would not divorce if same sex marriage becomes a reality. To be honest, I would consider anyone that would as bat **** crazy.

    I think this couple was just looking for an excuse to get divorced. They probably hated living with each other but couldnt admit it to themselves so they needed an outside reason to finally cut the knot.

    Maybe they live in a very conservative circle of friends and think this is the best way to get away with divorcing each other. You know, make it look like they are doing it for the good of their community whilst they in fact just want to marry someone else (or live on their own for a while).

    Nothing to protest .. at this point in time, and in this particular area.
    So, hell NO ! But my sympathies to the homosexual arena .. always a bad place to be .. with so many haters and fearers .. or so it seems ..
    Actually, the wrong ones get the attention .. thanks to our sick media ..

    Sadly ignorance reigns supreme.

    Whether it is Malaysians who think there was an earthquake because a couple of Westerners stripped on a mountain or supposedly superior Westerners (like in the US) who claim that it is gays and gay marriage who are to blame for the drought in California.

    i appreciate when the imbecile haters get the attention, because we start to associate all anti gay opinions with some fool pastor who dresses his horse in a wedding gown, or a couple who gets divorced to protest and so on. I mean just look on this forum. Every anti gay rant dissolves into "why don't we just legalize pedo marriage and bestiality while we're at it." Yeah, just like the pastor dressing his horse up

    These media blurbs actually do succinctly capture all the bigots out there. They are a caricature unto themselves

    People do stupid things for attention. This makes literally no difference as far as gay marriage legalization in Australia goes, but they'll surely enjoy the media focusing on them in the meantime.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    Well, I'm in Sydney at the moment...I'll ask around and see if there really is anybody who gives a rats ass about who marries who.
    The theory that the U.S. Government has systematically been dumbing down the citizens for many decades has now been proven on November 8, 2016. In fact, not only proven, but quantified.
