Letter to the Editor
There’s an old saying, “Be careful what you ask for because you might get it.” Gay marriage may well be an example of that. As a heterosexual who has been there and done that I think that a better solution to equality would have been to take marriage away from non-reproducing heterosexuals. There really is no such thing as marriage in America because of no fault divorce laws. Marriage is only a property contract and a really bad one at that. Having the State as a partner in your relationship adds nothing and if the relationship fails then all your property is divided up with both lawyers getting half.
Before you get married keep in mind that over 50% of marriages end in divorce, and most all of them, myself included, thought there was no chance divorce was ever going to happen to me. So before you go out and tie the knot I suggest that you take a long hard look at the reality of what you are getting into. You might want to sit back and take the time to see how it works out for others before you take advantage of the disadvantage of wedded bliss.
