Massachusetts gays divorcing
CNN ^ | AP

Posted on 12/10/2004 11:02:08 PM PST by fire_eye

BOSTON, Massachusetts (AP) -- Less than seven months after same-sex couples began tying the knot in Massachusetts, the state is seeing its first gay divorces.

Newlyweds seeking to renounce the vows they so recently took have been trickling into probate courts across the state, filling out obsolete forms that still read "husband" and "wife."

Josh Friedes, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Freedom to Marry Coalition, said the rapid divorces are no cause for concern.

"It would be wonderful if every marriage lasted until a couple lived to a ripe old age, but unfortunately we know from our heterosexual peers that all too often there are irrconcilable differences, and for these couples, divorce is often the most humane option," Friedes said. "Anyone who argues that gay and lesbian couples divorcing is grounds for opposing gay marriage is being incredibly hypocritical."

If you think hetero divorce is bad, homo divorce will run rampant. Why? Because most of these folks have no self control and live very selfishly. Which does not work well in a "marriage."

The idea of two people of the same sex getting "Married" is hilarious right on the face of it.

This just makes it even funnier... but I'm glad it's the people of Taxachusetts who are having to *pay* for it, and not *me*. (I'm sure it's all State subsidized back there, too...)

HA! If I remember correctly the homosexual community cited divorce in the heterosexual community as a reason to endorse homosexual marriage. They are the ones being hypocritical.

Gay activists are using every means to 'legitimize' so-called gay marriage. Once a judge has granted a 'legal' divorce, then the activists can say "See, this action must mean that we were in a valid, legal, state-sanctioned marriage"

You ARE kidding, right?
Citing anything the APA sellouts have to say is suspect on its face. I believe their line is that if the participant in an action or behavior doesn't suffer for it inside then its ok. Thats how they moved 'mo-dom from a disorder to an acceptable lifestyle. Its also the same logic that makes them lean to accepting pedophilia as not so bad after all.

"Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth"

Typical of those promoting an amoral culture and attempting to justify thier agenda using such methods as to tell a lie often enough and those who won't think will come to believe the lie.

Can you cite your "research" that finds no difference and has honest, critical peer, and public review? (and not the known to be subverted APAs.)

I suppose that Gay "spouses" have absolutely no problem telling any children they may raise that the natural order of things is a man mating with a woman? In your world, where the two "mates" cannot naturally produce a child of themselves, kids become more like pets than actual humans.

Gay marriage is an absurdity. Those who are intimately aware of the gay community know that promiscuity is the hallmark of the gay lifestyle, and that the change of partners invariably occurs often. A lasting homosexual relationship is like a snow in New York in July. Just ask a psychiatrist.

What?!

You mean this institution they just couldn't live without has turned out to be less than perfect?

Or could it be they were just in it for the attention, notoriety, activism etc. and not the commitment? Why I never dreamed they weren't sincere.

Bad enough to attempt to make a travesty of marriage, but now they make one of divorce. Be interesting to see if they had pre-nuptial (or pre-whatever) agreements. LOL! Time wounds all heels!

Did you sign up today just to tell us that?

In research it finds that there is no difference in gay parenting verses heterosexual parenting.

Your 'research' apparently has not reached the phase where the kids on the playground ask "Where's your mommy?"

Tell them they don't even have to fill out the form and pay the fee; they're good to go as a non-married couple

Yeah - but if they go & get married again, can they be prosecuted for bigamy???? LOL

Common sense tells us that children who are raised by a homosexual couples are going to experience gender identification problems!!

The research you cited is clearly being done by biased organizations. Let's face it, the mental health organizations in this country are run by folks with a clear agenda, specifically "normalizing" homosexuality.

We the "uneducated" don't need statistics to see clearly. Our hearts and heads tell us that gay marriage is WRONG.

Apparently, the majority of gay marriages are between wimyn. That aside, has the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled, in its infinite wisdom, that gay divorce is constitutional?

We need a Constitutional Amendment protecting the sanctity of divorce. "A divorce is a breakup of a married man and woman."

You got it. It should become clear to everyone why lawyers vote for liberals......because liberal policies lead to chaos and when there's chaos people run to the lawyers. Look at all the instant clients gay marriage is creating.

Really. When it is a man and a woman, the man usually gets screwed, so the choice is obvious there. It's usually a roadhouse divorce (that's what my wife gave me). She got the house, I got the road.

Anyway, it is going to be fun for the judge to determine which one is the "man"!

Agreed, they were never married, therefore they can't divorce. They can simply cease their unnatural lifestyle.
