Sanctity of marriage—let’s go all the way

Recovered from the Wayback Machine.

If we’re going to have an amendment to the Constitution to ensure the sanctity of marriage by denying gays the right to marry, then I think it’s only fair that we do a good job of it: let’s make divorce unconstitutional.

No, I’m serious. If we’re asking gays to give up their rights to marry just to ensure the holy bonds of matrimony, I think it’s only fair that we heterosexuals also give something up for the cause — our right to divorce.

Just think of it: marriage in this country would be for man and woman and would be forever until death do us part. If you’ve been divorced, think about how much your divorce has hurt the foundations of marriage. Now, wouldn’t you have been better to stay and just work things out with your ex-partner than call it quits?

Why, if this existed as part of our Constitution long ago, you’d still be married to your first spouse; if you’ve married again, you’d be living in violation of the law.

Now, I know that you’re going to talk about romance and love and all that hearts and flowers crap, but that’s not what’s important — what’s important is the sanctity of marriage.

I am serious about this. I have never been more serious in my entire life. If you’re an American citizen, follow this link, or this one and write your Representative, Senator, or President Bush himself and demand that the Marriage Amendment be modified to also include a ban against divorce.

It’s the fair thing to do.
