What would normally be a typical argument any couple would have would always be escalated into something epic. Should I back down, I was 'lieing'. If I just walked away, I was 'neglectful'. If I fought on....well that just made everything worse. Regardless of the outcome, it would always be brought back up weeks, even years later. Let me tell you that there's nothing wrong with her memory lol.
She could go from wanting to fix the marriage straight into her boyfriend's arms at the bar in under an hour.
We both love the kids, but love is not enough.

Of course it does. Not sure why the bigots and haters would think it does not.

And, no, most divorces do not work this way and do hurt the family, but it is not an absolute that all divorces undermine the family. I had friends in high school who were happy that their parents got divorced because they didn't believe that their parents were happy together. Overall, their family was better for their parents not being with each other.
Divorce still has nothing to do with allowing same sex marriage. It is a separate issue for promoting the family, that should be dealt with through incentives for trying to get people to not marry before they know what they are getting into and finding ways to encourage people to stay together during rough times. I think that one good thing that I have recently read that might be one incentive that every state could possibly try would be to offer a waiver on the marriage license fee for attending approved premarital counseling, like Georgia does. Or, there could be some sort of tax incentive to attending premarital couseling or marriage counseling (make it a tax writeoff or something like that). Unfortunately, the best way to get people to understand that marriages can be hard and should be worked on in most cases (with exceptions being most abuse cases) is to teach this to people when they are young.

Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
How else do you intend to rule the lives of gay people?
Why stop there? Why not dictate to everyone what they should call themselves and how they should live their lives?
Ugly, isn't it?
In the last few pages I've argued with YourStar that gays should call each-other "wife" "husband", etc, because "partner" does not describe the same kind of relationship. YourStar gave insight that gays call each-other "partner" due to social rejection, and I maintain that continued use of "partner" perpetuates that social rejection and does the gay community no favors.
