Sarah and Nick Jensen may be getting a divorce after ten years of marriage because gay people might soon be able to legally marry.
You see, if gays are going to ruin the sanctity of marriage as Conservatives proclaim, then divorcing your spouse in order to protect one’s marriage makes total sense. It’s saying, ‘Oh yeah? You can’t destroy our marriage because we will do it first!’
According to Raw Story, the Australian couple published a lengthy letter which states that they’re considering divorce (seeking attention) after 10 years of marriage because gay people in the country might soon have the legal right to marry.
So instead, the couple will live in sin, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
In part, the husband writes, “After our divorce, we’ll continue to live together, hopefully for another 50 years.”
“And, God willing, we’ll have more children. We’ll also continue to refer to each other as “husband” and “wife” and consider ourselves married by the Church and before God.”
So they’ll be lying right in God’s face about their marital status.
Our view is that marriage is a fundamental order of creation. Part of God’s intimate story for human history. Marriage is the union of a man and a woman before a community in the sight of God. And the marriage of any couple is important to God regardless of whether that couple recognises God’s involvement or authority in it.
My wife and I, as a matter of conscience, refuse to recognise the government’s regulation of marriage if its definition includes the solemnisation of same sex couples…
When we signed that official-looking marriage certificate 10 years ago at Tuggeranong Baptist Church, we understood that the state was endorsing marriage, as currently defined, as the fundamental social institution – with all that this implied.
But if this is no longer the case, then we no longer wish to be associated with this new definition. Marriage is sacred and what is truly ‘marriage’ will only ever be what it has always been.
Marriage is so ‘sacred’ that they will be getting divorced.
Instead of being married, they will live in sin so that the gays can’t ruin their marriage. Or something.
Single handedly, this brave couple will stop gay people from marrying. Or, they’ll just do talk shows and make a few bucks.

There’s more at Raw Story.
