I was just notified that Britney Spears has filed for divorce from her husband Kevin Federline, citing irreconcilable differences.
Let’s see, Britney has been married twice, right? Does the “just for fun” 55 hour marriage to Jason Alexander count as a “marriage”?
I don’t have any trouble with the times Britney does or doesn’t marry – for all I care she could be married every other week. She makes enough money to care for any children she has.
It’s just that, well, why does Britney get to marry as many times as she wants, to people she seems to fall out of love with pretty quickly, when people who love each other deeply enough to commit decades of their lives to each other don’t get the chance to marry at all?
Perhaps James Dobson is right – Britney’s marriage was destroyed by same-sex marriage. If same-sex marriage is that deadly to Britney’s marriage, what terrible destructive force has destroyed all of Elizabeth Taylor’s marriages?
I dunno – but I bet it has something to do with Ted Haggard, Mark Foley, and conservative Republicans.
