Straight Couple Threatens to Divorce if Same-Sex Marriage Becomes Legal

I guess this wonderful couple are headed to divorce court…..

This is yet another example of christian BS. It’s okay to feel the way you do, but their is a “huge gap in your logic.” Are you truly in love, is your marriage based on faulty reasoning, or do you really believe what the bible says about divorce or are letting your personal feelings dictate to you what truth is. What is most pathetic is the thought that people think marriage is a god given institution. Here’s question, is marriage sanctioned by the church? NO! Marriage is sanctioned by the government. If the church marries you, it wouldn’t be recognized. Another thought that lies heavy on me is, the society dictates the norms or will be accepted behavior. All the prophets and saints were under someone else’s rule. So this couple, are just one of the many who are christians in name only. Who would have thunk it!

That a married couple who identifies themselves as Christian would oppose same-sex marriage should come as no surprise, especially in Australia. However, what makes Nick and Sarah Jensen‘s protest unique is what they plan to do if the country ever decides to amend the constitution.

Simply put, the happily married couple is threatening to divorce if Australia passes any same-sex legislation later this year:

Jensen told Fairfax Media that he and his wife entered into their marriage “as a fundamental order of creation, part of God’s intimate story for human history, man and woman, for the sake of children, faithful and for life”.
“And so, if later on in the year the state does go ahead and changes the definition of marriage and changes the terms of that contract then we can no longer partake in that new definition unfortunately,” he said.
Under Tony Abbott, the county’s conservative prime minister since 2013, the current government has worked to bar legislation rendering same-sex marriage possible. Since Ireland’s game-changing popular vote in May, however, Australia and other countries around the world are beginning to rethink their positions on promoting and passing pro-LGBT amendments.

Still, it’s interesting that the Jensens — who describe any attempt to allow gay marriage as undermining “our most sacred institution, and [having] serious consequences for children who would grow up without a mother or father” — are technically threatening to do just that with their divorce. As the Sydney Morning Herald points, the couple has (and wants to have more) kids, yet their threatened split could do to them what they think allowing same-sex marriage will do to all children of such unions.
