Every year you are just getting older. Get out while you still have a life left to live.

Capo Del Bandito: gingerjet: URAPNIS: The whole marriage thing is complete bullshiat anyway.

Just because you are divorced, working in a dead end job, and paying two thirds of your salary in child support doesn't mean the rest of us will fark it up.

Statistically, in the US, isn't more than half of normal folks fark it up?


No, because divorced people can keeping getting divorced. A married couple stays a married couple for life.

For example, eight couples have to stay together for life to equal one Liz Taylor.

gays in the pre-life were brainwashed by Satan in rape/pedo chambers in the 5th CIRCLE OF HELL. all because they forgot to wash their hands before cooking their beef.


No, I think you're wrong on that. Gays know a great deal about proper meat handling procedures.

I'm a divorce lawyer (well, it's 10% of my practice) and you could easily afford my services. You just might not be able to afford the payout to your wife (and 18 years is a big payout)

As a straight male I support gay marriage 100%. I'm also in support of gay couples being allowed to have children via adoption or surrogate.

I also support being randomly sent baked goods. Preferably Banana Nut or Blueberry muffins. I support BIE too. Dolphin juggling, flapjack throwing competitions, edible underwear on women covered in raspberry jam and brownie birthday cakes covered in marshmallow icing.

No one gives a damn about a woman's right to cover herself in raspberry jam and send a random stranger pictures of said act along with a basket of fresh baked muffins but as soon as someone mentions gay marriage everyone gets all up in arms and takes a side.

If ANYONE wants to get married whether for love or for tax reasons let them. At this point in history it shouldn't even be close to a big deal.

As a people we need to move on to more important issues like somehow getting RnR pictures of hot 18+ females covered in raspberry jam and wearing candy undies. (I'll also settle for that muffin basket). Everything else is just old men yelling at the clouds.

Yeah,

Where's the disconnect, asshole?

You?

Please elucidate.


I don't get why you keep quoting & replying to your own posts.

Anyway, I think the idea here is that the headline says "Males" less supportive of gay marriage.

You said you supported it, and said "wrong," as if the headline was invalidated by your support.

But the article says "Males," not "All Males."

Therefore your support has no effect on the veracity of the headline, or the article backing it, so long as 2 or more males are "less supportive" of gay marriage (than women, I assume, DNRTFA).

To be slightly less nitpicky, I think the headline means that statistically, fewer men are supportive of gay marriage than women, and/or are less strongly supportive. Neither of which are markedly impacted by your personal stance, ergo why stating "wrong" was incorrect and you were called on your reading comprehension.

Probably depends on the sitchy-aytion. My mom got fark-all from divorcing my dad, and he got primary custody.

Second go round, step-dad was the one what did the running, so she got money from him for a long while, and bennies.

I will believe that when there is a group called One Million Dads. The few people I know that are against gay marriage, at least admit it, are women. One of which is black and married to a white man. I love pointing out that it wasn't so long ago she would not have been allowed to marry her husband she is too dense to get it though. I live in the gayest town in Gaystonia though I only have 4 straight neighbors within 100 yards of me so YMMV.

About 50% of all marriages end in divorce, but, when the stat was adjusted for first marriages, supposedly, about 41% end in divorce, according to some sites.

People may claim they are doing this out of a level of respect for the sanctity of marriage, but in the end it's a money issue. Equality under the law means homosexuals get the same tax breaks and insurance benefits as straight couples. Companies that have to worry about dependents are fighting gay marriage on these issues alone.

Men should be for marriage equality if only for the chance that with gay marriage fully recognized, there will be no way to discriminate based on sex for alimony.
And if non applicable for homosexual marriage the practice would hopefully be finally stopped for all marriages.
 
2012-08-06 09:20:23 PM  
I say get rid of government recognized marriage altogether and just have 'civil unions' for any two non-related adult people instead. Then 'marriage' is just between you and your religion.

I'm guessing he either had nothing, or for the sake of expediancy, you expected nothing. Sometimes it's just better that way.

Unless there were kids involved. In that case: what the hell were you thinking? It would be within your legal rights to fire bomb your lawyer's house if he agreed to this.

You've just changed those you're discriminating against from homosexuals to atheists and agnostics.

It happens. Sometimes it's just cleaner that way. Unless you desperately need the money (kids, shared debts), it's tainted with whatever stupidity your ex got on it.

An old co-worker did the "nice" thing in the divorce, and she got slapped with their shared debts when he fled the state. And then another 10 years of nail-biting as he'd play head-games with their son (which I recognize is typically the opposite case...).
