Umm yeah, and your point is?

Some conservatives are rubbing their hands together with glee at the news that the first same-sex couple married in Massachusetts in 2004 have amicably separated. ("See? See? Told ya!") Apparently they believe that this proves some kind of bullshit point, I'm not sure what, against gay marriage. In fact it does prove a point, just not what conservatives think -- that gay marriage is subject to all the same ups, downs, problems and issues as straight marriage, meaning there's not much difference between the two. Which, correct me if I'm wrong, is pretty much what proponents of equal marriage have been saying all along, no?
