In an interview last week, Grammy Award-winning rocker Melissa Etheridge came out swinging in favor of gay divorce.
“I’m for gay marriage, because I’m for gay divorce,” Etheridge told interviewer Joy Behar on the new Current TV show Joy Behar: Say Anything.
Etheridge also mentioned that her high profile split from Tammy Lynn Michaels, which was finally settled in May of this year, cost her twice as much as what a heterosexual couple would have spent on a divorce.
Same-sex divorce is quickly emerging as a critical – and contentious – issue in many countries and jurisdictions around the world that fail to recognize same-sex marriage. The issue is even more complex and urgent when, as in Etheridge’s case, there are children and child custody matters to address.
