I figured churches and other religious and conservative organizations know a lot about saving marriages because they deal with so much divorce. Knowing that these good folks would not spend over $25 million to change California’s State Constitution to prevent gay people from marrying unless it truly threatened the institution of marriage, I figured they made a list of the Top 10 reasons couples get divorced and it looked something like this:
1. Some guy they don’t know, who lives in a city they’ve never been to, marries a guy they’ve never met.
3. Domestic Abuse
4. Financial issues
5. Child rearing differences
6. Substance Abuse
7. Sexual Incompatibility
8. Religious and cultural conflicts
9. Lack of Communication
So, you see, spending $25 million on Proposition 8 makes sense. A whole lot more than spending it on counseling centers that offer programs to deal with the bottom nine on this list.
I mean, you gotta start at the top and work your way down, right?
