Lesbian couple set to have first New York gay divorce
Gay Star News ^ | June 27 2012 | Joe Morgan

Two women who got hitched days after the Marriage Equality Act in New York will file divorce papers this week

A lesbian couple is set to have the first New York gay divorce, due to file papers on Thursday (28 June).

Two women who have been in a relationship since 2008, and got hitched last summer after the Marriage Equality Act in New York was legalized, will be filing papers this week.

. . .

A couple for just over three years, Marks and Stage tied the knot in The Pop Up Chapel in Central Park.

Stage told the Atlantic Wire Marks had met another woman on the internet. Shortly afterwards, the couple broke up.

However, as New York law states marriages must have been broken down for at least six months before filing for divorce, it is only now the first gay divorces are beginning to happen.

Apparently even when the fight for same sex marriage proves successful, the unravelling happens anyway. It is clear that the insistence by gay advocates that they can do better than straights, and will stem the tide of divorce, does not hold true.

The fact is, SSM rode in on the decadent divorce and unravelling which took place in the straight world, and will ride out on it, too.

This pair managed to stay “married” for ten months.

In the homosexual world, this counts as a “stable, long-term relationship”.

Right, I think they may just prove to be their own undoing on the same sex marriage front.

If there’s no man in the marriage, how will the divorce Judges know which side to screw over?

It’s always been my understanding that lesbian relationships were infinitely more stable than gay relationships. Camille Paglia once remarked that gay relationships inevitably wind up being sex without love, and lesbian relationships inevitably wind up being love without sex.

Either way, ten months is inconceivable for a Kardashian.

The lawyers will be the only ones that ever profit from gay marriage. I have seen my step son and his peers fight like cats and dogs during their 'break ups". I frankly have several times just told them to leave the house.

They are the most petty, spiteful people I have ever seen, they will spare no expense taking their fights public and the lawyers will laugh all the way to the bank.

Just like the Goodridge "couple" in Massachusetts:

The lesbians that started this whole thing back in '03....

The Goodridge couple, who helped start the chaos, are now "divorced".

Right - it is bad enough when a man and woman marry, create a child together, and then divorce.

But imagine the lesbian and gay male couples who hire surrogates or sperm donors, bring into being a child through unnatural means, and then decide they really should not have done the whole thing in the first place?

There are going to be some strange, alienated kids growing up as a result of the selfishness of adults who just HAD to prove their point.

Right, I think all of this is proving that this social experiment was less about wanting to marry, and more about selfishness and making your point, society and kids be damned.

That sounds about “right.” The last I read up on the statistics on “gay marriage” the average “committed relationship” between homosexuals lasted 1.3 years...or just a little longer than the average Americans spends on the toilet in their lifetime.

I suppose just like the rest of their relationship, no one gets the shaft.

Now that is a great question.

We all know that in most divorces it is the man that gets shafted.I suppose they will pick the most mannish looking of the two, and drop the hammer on it.

I would have loved to have lived in a time before homosexuals hijacked the term gay. It used to be a wonderful term, now forever ruined.

Homosexual breakups are often messy, vindictive, violent. If they made a reality TV show of homosexual divorces it would be a top 10 show in no time.

You are right. The push for gay marriage is not about forming a permanent loving union to start a family. It is about shoving their homosexuality in our faces, about hijacking “straight” institutions, and about demanding acceptance.

Well I for one will never accept homosexuality. I condemn it and I always will.

Right. Always brings a snort of derision from me whenever I hear of people accepting homosexuals who are in a "long-term-committed-relationship."

A former Rector used this BS on me once with a smug look on his face until I asked him to define "long-term-committed-relationship."

I told him that his stuttering and stammering reminded me of an old Chevy Impala I had in college. "Is your floorboard rusted through as well?"

...Row and Wade are EVIL too!!!!

"Wade" is Henry Wade, the Dallas County District Attorney who defended the position that performing an abortion is a criminal act. Why is he evil?

"Row" is actually "Roe" is actually Norma McCorvey, who ultimately came to realize that abortion is barbaric and now fights against it. Is she evil too?

In DE, it is much like a divorce of a real marriage. Marital assets are divided (including debt), the one that earns more pays more. If kids are involved and one parent is the biological parent, the court recognizes the other as a parent only if the child was then adopted by the non bio parent. (I believe that I got that right).

The big difference is that since the Federal gub'mint does not recognize "g@y marriage" retirement funds/pensions are not divided.

Not sure about other states buy lawyers do not get a percentage like in PI cases, they get billable hours based on their hourly rate. So they may have more cases but are limited to how many clients they can take on

That would not fit the current TV message of homosexuals being the most noble, honest, funny, caring and thoughtful members of our society.
