    I wasn't aware it was the job of the courts to break up families. This reeks of the judge imposing his religious views. How is this different than those who want to ban Sharia law?

    For those who think outrageous negative bias toward the LGBT community is dead.

    I'm avoiding the word "homophobia" to avoid the literalists who, lacking an understanding of the colloquial usage of the word, make much of the suffix "phobia"... literally interpreting in the clinical, rather than the colloquial, sense.

    Yes, clinically "phobia" refers to an irrational fear. Used in this word, it does not.

    Just thought I'd add this to anticipate, and defuse, any upcoming problems...

    She signed the divorce papers. She lives with the consequences. Simple as that.

    From the article

    I find the concept of a morality clause to be completely bizarre.

    While it is bizarre, how can a court include something without someone knowing? Don't people read **** before they sign it?

    The sympathy is weak in this one.

    This a ridiculous ruling. I am just so pleased that same sex marriage is now legal down here in New Zealand.

    That judge should be tossed in prison. Its a clear abuse of power. How come this type of thing never happens with single parents who are dating?

    Seems like marriage itself is the problem, this appears to be another way to discourage people from getting married in the first place. Maybe we will all be happier without it.

    Well, it's those heterosexual marriages. They never last because of all the promiscuity in the heterosexual community.

    :rolleyes:

    I had to read this several times to be sure I got it right, because I just couldn't believe it.

    Then something else struck me. According to the article, if they were sisters (i.e. if they had an incestuous relationship), the morality clause wouldn't be applicable...

    Personal accountability went out of style in the Eisenhower.

    Any other comments that completely dismiss what actually went on here?

    Someone was held accountable to the morality clause they willingly signed on to..

    That's what went on.

    There are all types of guns. From the article:

    "Price also mentions that Compton’s ex-husband rarely sees their two children and was once charged with stalking Compton"

    but she should have stayed married to him instead of signing the only thing she could have to be free of someone who is a danger to her.

    The circumstances there aren't really explained. Why was that clause added? What if she refused the terms? She may not have anticipated it being applied in such a way. This isn't a matter of bringing home strangers. She has obviously been in a relationship with that person. I think you're being quick to judge here, as nothing suggests this relationship has negatively impacted her children.

    I don't care. Don't sign binding agreements you can't live up to. Grown ups understand this. The oversized children that are overrunning this country can't seem to grasp this concept.

    So no gay person in any state that has this clause can get divorced until this is removed from all divorce papers. And if not, too bad?

    That's what lawyers are for.

    Furthermore, this is not a gay issue.

    You see the word "gay" in there? Anything in there say you can't be gay and have a gay partner? Nope. It says you can't have sleepovers with your cuddle buddy past 9 while the kids are there.

    "It's because I'm gay" doesn't pass the sniff test on this issue.
