I guess gay marriages don't last, either

It must not have been wedded bless for a lesbian couple who led the fight for gay marriage in Massachusetts.

According to the Associated Press, Julie and Hillary Goodridge, who were married the first day same-sex marriages became legal, have filed for divorce.

The pair 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.

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.
