The guy who does my hair has been with his partner for over 30 years. They not only live together, but they also work together. I've been fortunate to watching these guys take care of each other since 1986, and that's just a fraction of the time they've been together.
If these guys are a threat to traditional marriage, it's only because a good portion of their clientele has become widowed during the decades they've been going to this salon. Of course their median customer age hovers around 78 at this point and one customer was widowed at the young age of 91 (and she's still coming to the salon every week at 94), but I'm sure there's a wingnut somewhere who would say, "See? They ARE a threat!"
Meanwhile, one of wingnuttia's foremost advocates of the sanctity of "opposite marriage", as that champion of monogamy, Carrie Prejean would say, has just ditched his SECOND wife, according to "family spokesperson" Dana Perino
First of all, who the hell in private life has a "family spokesperson"? And what a comedown for Dana Perino, unless she's already the third Mrs. Rove by injection, which is kind of difficult to imagine, given the rumors that surrounded Mr. Rove and the ferocious attempts to keep secret prostitute/fake reporter's hundreds of visits to the White House during the Rove years
At any rate, I eagerly await the explanation of how getting a quickie Texas divorce when you "plan to spend time together in the future"
is consistent with the sanctity of one man, one woman marriage.
