Gay Marriage Meets Gay Divorce


From Boston.com

BOSTON (Reuters) - The lesbian couple whose landmark lawsuit helped Massachusetts become the only state in America where same-sex couples can marry legally have split up, a spokeswoman said on Friday.....

Julie and Hillary Goodridge married on May 17, 2004, the first day same-sex couples were allowed to wed, in a festive ceremony attended by dozens of journalists.....
Seems that one of them is a principal at an investment firm and the other is a professional beggar for the Unitarian Universalist Church. Seems like a cozy relationship. I wonder who loses the house, all the money and is forced to pay $3000/month alimony. My money is on the financier getting the short end of the stick on this one.

In the meantime, the Massachusetts Legislature decided to do nothing until after the elections in regard to the Constitutional amendment which they are forced by law to vote on one way or the other. That's real smart, not doing anything on an issue that 70% of Massachusetts voters support. Now we can hammer them during the whole election cycle. Real smart.

That's too bad.
They were such a cute couple, too.
Oh well, everyone said it wouldn't last.
