“I am so proud to witness this historic moment”, LGBT activist Sandra Milkowich said with tears in her eyes. “For decades we have fought for the right to become as miserable as heterosexual couples are, and finally we have succeeded.”
Meanwhile, things were heating up in the divorce court.
“John is a pig and imposssible to live with,” Westlake said. “He throws his dirty socks on the floor and expects me to pick them up. He makes smacking sounds with his lips when he eats. He farts in bed too.”
“Andy is entirely to blame for this divorce,” said Hill. “He has been cheating on me from day one. He is always on the computer, either watching gay porn or setting up dates with other men. And after all this he expects to come home to a tidy house and a ready dinner.”
A neighbour witness said in court said the couple often argued loudly, only to refuse to talk to each other for days. Both partners, the witness said, would tell neighbours how bad the other partner was.
At stake is a shared estate which includes a 750,000 dollar house, a Mini Cooper and a New Beetle, a jet ski and a collection of Barbra Streisand memorabilia valued at 50,000 dollars.
The couple had been married for three weeks when they filed for divorce.
“Isn’t it beautiful to watch them fight?” asked Milkowich. “I hope to have my own divorce one day when I have found Miss Right.”
As the next landmark event, the gay liberation movement is looking forward to the first gay adopted child custody battle.
