Julie and Hillary Goodridge were among seven gay couples who filed a lawsuit that led to a court ruling making Massachusetts the first state to legalize same-sex marriages in 2004. The couple became the public face of the debate in the state and married the first day same-sex marriages became legal.

The divorce case was filed last week in Suffolk Probate and Family Court and was not unexpected. The couple announced they were separating in 2006.

This is where I divert from my fellow gays: If you are getting married to make a political statement or because of the novelty of it all, then you are getting married for the wrong reasons.

I agree. But why would you find it to be good news that a marriage failed, no matter whose marriage it is?

I'm sure the failure had nothing to do with whether they were gay or straight. Lots of straight people get married for the wrong reasons too. :)

I get disappointed that they want to break up after two years together. All this time, they filed a lawsuit. Not a marriage made in heaven. I rather see you get married!

I would love to be able to get married. ~nodnod~ But whether their marriage was good or bad, that couple is fighting for my rights. I'm sorry their marriage didnt work. :(
