YAY! I think everyone should have an equal opportunity to be as miserable as I was in marriage.

I may have to rethink my plans on retiring in Colorado. I might have a homosexual couple living on one side of me, a bunch of pot heads on the other, and my wife calculating how she could use the new state alimony laws to wipe me out financially.

When your wife leaves you, just move in with the stoners. They won't even notice.

This is good news for Colorado. Also, it is expected to be done so by May 1 civil unions can begin in Colorado.

This is from the Denver Post:


Senate Bill 11 now heads to the Appropriations Committee, one of a number of steps before the measure makes it way to the governor's desk. It is expected to be signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper in March and become law on May 1.

But seriously I'm thrilled.

Although I don't think that any legislation should be passed which forces private parties to participate in gay marriage activities...like the article mentions some baker who could be sued or go to jail for not making a gay wedding cake? No way. "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone, for any reason or no reason." And churches should have that right, too.

So then you have an appropriate level of separation between church and stage. Equal rights under the law, and the church doesn't have to host the oh so fabulous ceremony if they don't wanna. Easy!
