    I feel so sorry both of them; what a horrible thing to happen. Its like a great deal of their lifes was lie because one woman wanted to use people’s feelings for kicks.

    How could anyone not be suspicious of a claim that they could marry without actually being present. Even in the ridiculous Las Vegas chapels, you still have to be there.

    But seeing as it saves them all the palava of the divorce, I can’t see why they are overly upset.

    1. I have to agree with you there.

      my husband and I spent months planning our wedding, and it was a VERY small affair, very intimate.

      There is nothing on earth that would have stopped us from being there.

      So these guys don’t have to go through a divorce now. Great. Saves all those lawyer’s fees.

        It’s possible that if they were not prepared to attend, they weren’t 100% committed in the first place. If so, no wonder it fell apart.

  3. Great article! This post is very informative and knowledgeable. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Can’t PN find a better image to illustrate these stories?

    This tired old cliché is just the sort of thing that the Telegraph would use to discredit equal marriage.

    This will be the great “sanctity of Marriage” the churches are trying to protect.

    When will they get it it into their thick skulls that marriage is bugger all to do with religion.

    And this story simply highlights it.

    New York, Connetecut, Idaho, Vermont, Massachusetts and New Hampshire allow gay marriages as do the District of Columbia. Maryland and Rhode Island recognise marriages performed elsewhere and California recognise gay marriages that were performed before Prop 8 was passed. As well as the Presidential election on November 6th, our eyes will be on Maryland and Washington where it is likely that referendums will approve gay marriage. Maine is also voting on whether to introduce a bill to introduce marriage equality.
    Our biggest concern is that Mitt Romney will become President and he wants to amend the US Constitution to outlaw marriage equality. Fortunately he has a fat cat in hell’s chance as in order to bring in a Constitutional Amendment two-thirds of Congress have to approve it before >75% of the states (38 of the states) ratify it. With public support for marriage equality growing in the USA this really is last chance saloon for those who want to get their Mitts on our rights.
