When gay couples get divorced, who is the bad guy?

Asked by josie (23360 points ) February 25th, 2014

When I got divorced, and also when a couple of friends got divorced, the general rule seemed to be…

If the girl leaves it is because the guy is an asshole. If the guy leaves it is because he is an asshole.

How does that axiom hold up when gay couples get divorced?

You need to move. Here’s what happens around here when a couple gets divorced: if the guy leaves, the guy has left. If the woman leaves, than the woman has left. If there are kids involved, the kids have to deal with all of the shit. The woman’s friends support the woman, the men’s friends support the man.

I suspect that you are either paranoid, or you live in a strange part of the country.

@hominid Tell me which parts of the country are strange, and I will tell you if you got it right.

I have no idea. But if you’re living in a part of the country where you are attacked for being a straight white man, you should probably move. But suspect you’re just being paranoid.

I am NOT being paranoid. It’s just that everybody is out to get me, and it is getting me down.

Unless one of them is an abuser or cheater, there is no bad guy in divorce – straight or otherwise.

Why would it be different from straight couple break-up? Fault lies on both sides.

@josie Ah but are you paranoid enough?
If it’s males I’d say the guy in the other asshole. I’m not sure if it’s women.

Both are assholes.

Let’s just say there is a lot of “that bitch!” being thrown around.

@josie You’re the bad guy. We all blame you. Little did you know, but all gay men who are married are given your picture at their wedding and told it’s this guy’s fault if you get divorced.
