Right, because heterosexuals never got divorces before. At least divorce is something you know about.
I'm sure as more Americans support marriage equality, Evangelical Christians will back away from the issue.and contribute to accelerate societal collapse. After all, they paved the way with divorce.
The more you harp on that one note, the more you prove my point on this issue.
It takes only one person to get a divorce, it takes two people of opposite gender to make a marriage.
btw, in IL, as in NY, they had "same sex divorce" before they had redefined marriage. In fact, in IL the first homosexual "divorcing" his "partner" filed two years ago. Marriage isn't officially redefined in IL until next month.
My mother's been through two divorces; two of my sisters are divorced. Trust me, it takes two to divorce, but usually both parties think it only takes one.
No, it takes only one. Besides the admission by the ad hominem crowd that divorce (as opposed to my parents or siblings, though you can trust them when they say the same answer as mine) "is something [ I ] know about," and the same judgement of my ex's father confessor and our counselor (and, it would seem, our son's psychologist-although he hasn't come out and said it, he has said plenty on their mother), there is plenty of data that the divorce courts of this country churn out. Let alone the plain language of the divorces statutes.
"Usually" doesn't mean "always." I'm not sure of this issue if you can even substantiate it meaning "mostly."
The same ad hominem ilk used to point out that Reagan was divorced when he promoted family values. Not something pertinent, mind you, like he signed the first no fault divorce law while governor of California (something he (and his son) said he regretted when he saw what he unleashed). No, a personal attack because they couldn't argue the facts on the matter. That his ex remarried and divorced after him-as she had married before him-and the number of years of their marriage outnumbered the number of years of her other marriages put together, while he remarried for over half a century until his death, would suggest a rather lopsided allotment of responsibility for the divorce.
Mel Gibson said the he alone bore the responsibility of his divorce. Given his behavior, is there any contrary evidence?
