In 2015 a Christian couple in Australia vowed to get divorced if same sex marriage was
passed in to law here. I remember they were very adamant about it, saying that marriage wouldn't mean the same thing if LGBT were included in it.
So the Daily Mail has caught up with said couple yesterday and they completely backed down in a humiliating defeat. They didn't understand the law in the first place, but you know ignorance of the law is no excuse. Especially when you're going on newspapers across the country announcing your intentions. To be divorced you have to be separated for ages or something. No shit Sherlock; marriage isn't a play thing to make some political point with. Assholes.
And BTW, eat shit Lyle.
Nick and Sarah Jensen, from Canberra, sparked controversy in 2015 when Mr Jensen announced they would end their decades-long legal union if same sex marriage was legalised.
When legalisation seemed much more likely in November, Mr Jensen said he would wait to see the letter of the law before making a decision.
And after Parliament finally passed the law to cheers on Thursday afternoon, Mr Jensen announced his position in a statement to Daily Mail Australia.
'My previous public comments regarding civil divorce never envisaged me separating from my wife, but rather our marriage from the State,' he wrote.
'The legislation currently makes it untenable for us to do this under the law.
'The point we were highlighting and that still stands however is the fact that a redefinition of marriage changes the agreement under which we were originally married.
'We will be making no further comment'. Daily Mail
