Not that I'm THAT jaded - because I'm not; however these women were together over 10 years but once they signed that paper they lasted two?!
The lesbian couple whose lawsuit led to legal same-sex marriage in Massachusetts have announced they have separated.
The Goodridges were among seven gay couples whose lawsuit helped thrust Massachusetts into the center of a nationwide debate on gay marriage. They were married May 17, 2004, the first day same-sex marriages became legal under the court ruling
Their 10 year old daughter was flower girl and she figured prominently in the Goodridges' case. Born via c-section, there were complications. Hillary Goodridge, at the time having no legal relationship with either mom/child, was barred several times from seeing them both.
Now their daughter is more protected because they were provided the right to marry. They have equal rights to care for the child, etc.
