This lesbian couple fought to get married in 2001. They got it in 2004. Now they are divorced. Why throwing away something they spent years fighting for?
Before they got married, this couple can live their lives as other heterosexual married couple. But apparently they didn't think that's enough. They felt the state should recognize their relationship as a 'marriage', so they fought for it.
And less than 2 years married, they separated in 2006. Now they divorced. Pathetic.
