But seriously. Huge mistake.

Why buy the cow when you are getting the sodomy for free?

But experts warned gay couples that just because they can suddenly get married, doesn't mean they should - at least not right away.

Wow, it's amazing that people never rushed into marriage before!

An ex-girlfriend of mine got gay-married in kind of a rush (for the reasons cautioned against in TFA)... she's farking miserable.

/that's right... I'm so repulsive I drive women to the other team.

It's cool.  Cosmo will bring 'em back.

It's funny, I was thinking this very thing last night; i.e. that just because you can do something doesn't mean you should.  Being married is NOT the same as living together.

Prenup.  Always.

Learned painfully after being taken for 6-figures, custody, AND spousal support by a drug addict ex-wife.  Then again, does a F-F or M-M divorce negate the gender bias?

Surprisingly enough, the Evangelical community has decided it's all for gay marriage: once the homos are married, they'll stop having sex altogether.

I know a patent lawyer who's married to a high end doctor who suggested they get divorced for tax reasons and replace it with a few select legal documents. She didn't appreciate this idea, but he figured marriage cost them about $20k a year.
 
2013-07-25 06:14:51 PM
They should just say lesbians. 77% of Coloradoans taking advantage of the new civil union law are lesbians. Sometimes stereotypes are true, gay guys apparently don't want to commit anymore than straight guys.
 
2013-07-25 06:15:45 PM
Here's what I tell people...

Being married does not make you love your SO more, it won't stop either of you from cheating if you really want to, and when you break up, you have a huge delay while the government gets involved.

Everyone should have the right to do it, but it is a bad idea.
 
2013-07-25 06:17:29 PM
I think it is wonderful that people of all sexual orientations now have the free choice to not get married because it is a bloody stupid idea.
 
2013-07-25 06:18:52 PM
Is this the thread where bitter farkers complain about choosing poor life partners and how doing so backfired on them?

How would that apply to a gay divorce? Either they're both women or they're both men. Who gets half of what?
 
2013-07-25 06:25:33 PM
Well with 2 dudes, there's probably not a huge problem with disappearing libidos.

It Gets Way Worse

When it comes to marriage, you may think it gets better, but in actuality, it gets way, way, way, way, way worse.

We both want to get a divorce, neither of us want the kid full time. I don't know how she gave birth to such an asshole.

My partner and I are thrilled that we have been able to get married in our state (Maryland) for the past six months.

But taking the time to drag ourselves away from our laptops and actually get it done?  Haven't gotten around to it.  Too busy...or too lazy...whichever.

Thank you Cletus ;P

My wife and I are celebrating our 2nd anniversary today.  We just celebrated our 20th in June.  Honestly, whatever the problems and pitfalls we run into, it has already been well worth it when dealing with at least one doc, and the pharmacy as well.  Knowing that when Labgrrl ends up in the hospital again, no one will be able to try to pull any shenanigans gives us great peace of mind.  Knowing that if either of us dies, the other won't lose the house and everything else we've built together is priceless.

True equality.
Hope a good number of you gay married folks find fulfillment and success and do not need to be divorced.  I'm being easy on you because marriage is a new thing still and you need to do what you have been dreaming to do.
Now in 10 years I may say something different.

Surool: Being married does not make you love your SO more, it won't stop either of you from cheating if you really want to, and when you break up, you have a huge delay while the government gets involved.


It does add some handy legal rights (hospital visitation, inheritance, etc.)

On the other hand, supposedly 30-60% of married people have cheated at some point in their relationships (by a definition that probably doesn't count Anthony Weiner). sometimes this comes out, other times not. So a goodly fraction of marriages mean one of the participants is keeping a painful secret for a lifetime (to avoid the same fate as the Weiners), even if the couple decides to stay together.

It always seemed like a cop-out way for people who aren't really in favor of marriage equality to sound like they are.

Yeah in places where this is an issue (thank the FSM not here) it is a possibly really good idea.

I think a lot of divorced men are waiting to see how that plays out.  FF couples with an adopted child will be interesting.  MM couples with an adopted child will probably be made to both give up have their stuff to either the birth mother or just some random women picked by the court.

The new missus has a nice 6 figure income.  I have a nice zero figure income.  Tax wise this is going to work out for us ok.  I have more assets but she has more income.  Wonder how it would work out if it comes to divorce.  She gets half my assets but I get alimony?  My understanding is that under CA law she doesn't automatically get half of what I brought into the marriage but we get to share any property or assets acquired after the we get married.  So I should be sitting pretty.

It should start to even things out, or at least make it more about income than gender.
