Same-Sex Divorce

In 2012, I was one of the voters who rejected the Minnesota Gay Marriage Amendment which would have banned same-sex marriages. In truth though I would have rather voted to ban all marriages as I knew that same-sex marriages would inevitable lead to same-sex divorces. I only voted down the amendment because banning same-sex marriages seems blatantly discriminatory and just plain mean to me. Sadly, as an NPR article and story that came out today states, now a whole new segment of the population will find out just how costly and unjust the divorce system can be. 

The lawyers, judges and others who profit from a dysfunctional divorce system no doubt are glad but it is at the expense of the good, the innocent and society as a whole.
