Of course they're allowed to get divorced. The biggest travesty is that during the celebrations the SLA raided a gay bar for a "routine check up."

This is, all things considered, pretty gay.

If it'll hold Jello, Utah will put Jello in it.

I wonder if this means gay divorce is allowed as well? That'd be pretty comical, a gay married cuople fils for divorce, but the state doesn't recognize the legalized seperation, heh heh.

Of course they're allowed to get divorced.

unless the couple gets married in a gay-marriage-friendly state, moves to another state, and then attempts divorce. When I saw this question posed I immediately remembered this article:

A similar story I heard on the radio a few years ago from some lesbians in Vermont that tried to get divorced after 20 years of marriage.

I meant within NY state, though I can legally how they wouldn't be allowed to get divorced. I'm curious about that ruling though: if a gay married couple move to a a state that doesn't recognize gay marriage, do they still receive tax benefits? If so, it puts a hole in the "implicit validation" that divorce would bring.

I don't know if this is all that great.

Lol, great read!

Though I think Kinky Friendman said it best when he said, "I believe they [gay people] have a right to be as miserable as the rest of us."
