    Its hardly been 7 months and they are already starting to divorce.

    Here is an interesting question though. The Massachusetts SC said they have a right to marry did it say they had a right to divorce? Perhaps they shouldnt. I mean they fought so hard to marry why should they be able to divorce as well?

    Whats funny is they seem to be blaming divorce on hetrosexuals.

    Regardless we do need to fix these divorce laws.

    extract from your article:

    "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."
    =================================

    OBSOLETE forms????????

    These media swine really get on my nerves.

    But there are funny aspects to this article. After being married only seven months, these two squirrels claim that "our interests have grown in different directions." After SEVEN MONTHS?????? Boy that's some kinda fast "growing". But the good news is that there appears to be little acrimony, with the only contentious issue being the custody of the three - cats.

    I have an idea. Instead of marriage or "civil unions" maybe homosexuals should simply be issued a cohabitation license - much the same as a fishing or hunting license. It would be good for six months. After that, they could buy another license or they could split the pussycats and go their separate ways.

    NO kidding!!!!!!!!! The Divorce Industry is a multi-billion dollar a year cash cow for not only the legal profession but the counselling profession as well.

    I once read that gay marriage was opposed by 67% of Americans but supported by 100% of divorce attorneys. Well, why not? After all they would be the biggest ones to benefit. Millions of potential clients appearing overnight! With billions of dollars of potential income!

    They're just catching up to their straight counterparts.

    That's yer bestest buddy and our very own American Nero, and he's still working on it. He has to be careful though or he'll pull his one functioning brain cell out with it.

    That's funny... I didn't know that Nero was responsible for the liberation of countries outside of the Roman Empire! Edward Gibbon never mentioned it in his work ... "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire"!

    I think that the REAL American Nero was your buddy.... WC Fields' kid brother.... Clinton. After all ... when the terrorists committed acts of war against us... he did what was tantamount to fiddling while Rome burnt to the ground....

    By the way, when are you liberal parrots going to stop with squawking about Bush is an idiot, Bush lied, Haliburton, blah blah blah? You're not going to get the cracker! You lost!

    :rotflmao:

    But seriously, if half of straight marriages end in divorce, why would you think that there wouldn't be a similar divorce rate in homosexual marriages?
