Gay divorces on the rise - I told you.


Drama and light-comedy.
.
I only gave a mention regarding gay divorce in a post earlier this week.  But the fact is, gay marriage leads to gay divorce - no two ways about it!  :)  The divorce rate will be higher amongst gay couples because of the drama.  Drama is important.  Think of all the Hollywood divorces throughout the 20th century one might emulate - who wouldn't want a Taylor-Burton style break-up?  It's the epitome of style and sophistication...  "Oh yes poodle - I've been married and divorced 20 times - well 19 if you don't count that little trick in Paris!  But I did get a nice settlement out of him!"
.
Seriously, look at Rosie, Melissa, Ellen, and Neil Patrick Harris, and the others.  And it's always the kids who suffer - imagine Rosie as a mom, dad, what have you.  And then she divorces and she gets custody of the kids - that's not just drama - it's more like a horror flick.  Then there is the more butch Melissa Etheridge - she has kids all over the place with two different women.  Of course no kids for Ellen, but she is on her second wife - while poor Anne Heche went straight after her ordeal.  But I digress, don't I?  (I know - Neil Patrick isn't divorced yet - but they are adopting - and after that they will divorce.)

From the Telegraph.co.uk:

Honeymoon over for many same-sex couples as 'divorces' double!
.
The honeymoon appears to be over for many of Britain’s same-sex couples as official figures show the number of civil partnerships being dissolved has doubled over the past year.  Some of them getting pretty nasty, fights over custody of the dogs and cats discounted, vicious accusations of infidelity are on the rise as well.  Splitting up a household is not easy - who gets the townhouse?  Who gets the Empire Chaise?  The Hockney lithos?   
.
In addition, fewer homosexuals are now forming the legal unions than at any point since their introduction five years ago...  Civil ceremonies are no longer enough - they want church weddings - like Diana's funeral - Elton John to play, and so on.
.
Peter Tatchell, the leading campaigner for homosexual equality, said: “If same-sex marriage was legalised, many more lesbian and gay couples would opt for it rather than civil partnerships.  Quite a number of my gay friends want legal recognition but they haven’t opted for a civil partnership – they are holding out for same-sex marriage.  That way, when it comes time to switch careers, house, and partners - legal divorce is much more fashionable - think Wallis Simpson - tres chic!" - Telegraph 

How very dare you!
