The Gay Divorcee

Homosexual divorce arrived. It could have a positive impact on heterosexual marriage.

From the Leaf-Chronicle:
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – While many were celebrating Friday’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling that now allows same-sex couples to marry in Tennessee, a smaller group was breathing a quiet sigh of relief for what it means for them — the right to divorce a same-sex spouse.
A former Clarksville woman filed what is believed to be the first paperwork in the state seeking a divorce from a same-sex partner. Her Complaint for Divorce was filed in Montgomery County Chancery Court just before the courthouse closed Friday afternoon.
The couple married in Shelbyville, Indiana, on June 4, 2014, but before Friday’s ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in Tennessee, they could not seek a divorce here. To terminate their marriage, one or the other would have had to move to a state that recognizes same-sex marriage and establish residency — a process that usually takes at least six months, said Nashville Attorney Ryan Johnson of Turner Law Offices.
He and Robert J. Turner are representing Taramarie Gulledge, who now lives in Kingston Springs but lived with her wife and their almost 3-year-old daughter in Clarksville until the couple split up in May.
In the complaint, Johnson’s client not only asks for a divorce based on irreconcilable differences and inappropriate marital conduct but asks for a temporary restraining order to keep her wife, Carol Lyn Wolf-Gulledge, from taking the toddler out of state.
Before the recent ruling, gay couples who married somewhere else but stayed in Tennessee didn’t have the legal remedies they have now — from divorce, to child custody and child support, to name a few.
“You had these people living in limbo,” Johnson said. “Sometimes they moved here and things hit the rocks.”
Now, Tennesseans can file for divorce from a same-sex partner so long as they meet same requirements of anyone else, including six months of residency. It doesn’t matter if they married in California, Massachusetts or Indiana.
“The right to same-sex marriage, will inevitably result in same sex-divorces,” said Clarksville attorney Mark Olson, who is not connected to the case. “Just as same-sex partners in marriage now have a right to be married, they will have the right to have access to the divorce courts. The divorce statutes will simply be interpreted as being gender neutral.”
Pardon me, but shouldn't all marriages be gender neutral, favoring neither side on the basis of their sex?


  1. But... but... I thought gay/lesbian relationships were 100% perfect and free from all strife. The Gaystapo and their media servants sure demonize and dehumanize the infidel blasphemers who even hint otherwise. Because #LoveWins!

  2. Marriage rates have plummeted in all regions where gay marriage has been implemented. Of those that do marry, divorce rates among GLBT up to 150% higher (depends on country etc). Frankly if marriage is just a public servant rubber stamp for your daddy issues who would want to get married? - Correllio

    1. That's because the goal is the deconstruction of traditional marriage, as with all other institutions that underlie our society, so that they can be replaced with relationships sanctioned by the all-powerful State. Children belong to the State (if they are allowed to be born at all), old people are to be euthanized, families are under suspicion and contain informers. That is the end game that these people seek.

  3. If I watched it, I'd EAGERLY await Gay Divorce Court (The Fashions! The Fury! The Fighting! The Screaming and Scratching! Better than pro wrasslin' and Roller Derby! BE THERE!!!!!) (Just sells itself.)

  4. The Legal Class will be the ones who benefit financially from all this new-think.
