I know how to really "protect" straight marriage from the heinous threat of gay & lesbian weddings.

It's a simple plan really.  If the "protect marriage" folks really want to preserve straight marriages and prevent gays from marrying, they should have written a different proposition.

They should have proposed that we issue one marriage license to a gay or lesbian couple for every straight couple that divorces in California.  One straight divorce = one gay or lesbian wedding.  

Want to stop the gays from marrying?  No problem!  As long as the straight folks focus on their own marriages enough to keep them together - no gay weddings.  But, if you screw it up and get divorced, then Bam! another gay couple is getting registered at Crate & Barrel for their spring nuptials.  And it's All. Your. Fault

That ought to keep the gays out of the chapel AND the straights out of divorce court. Win/Win, right? 

Maybe I'll email that idea to the Catholic & Mormon churches.

Thanks Deb!

Maybe the divorcing couple ought to be required to hand over their marriage license directly to the lesbian couple at the court house too? That would be good, huh?

Our Florida vote ended up like your California vote. It makes me sad.
The phrase "sanctity of marriage" makes me want to barf, even though I've been married to the same guy for 29 years.

But your idea ROCKS!

Your idea rocks and Stacey's idea is icing on the cake!
