Robin Mayer and Sian Blanchflower appealed the case to the Supreme Court, arguing that gay sex doesn't qualify as adultery under the state's divorce law. They pressed their case despite gay and lesbian organizations filing briefs to oppose it, and in a 3-2 ruling Friday, the New Hampshire court agreed with them -- ruling that the definition of adultery requires sexual intercourse, which women apparently cannot have with each other. (Go here for the opinion and dissent.)
But what about strap-ons or fingers? Or what if a guy has an extramarital affair with a woman (or a man...), but the affair only entails oral or anal sex? I guess Schwarzenegger was right -- eating *ISN"T* cheating. By law, you can get away with it in New Hampshire without commiting adultery!
So, is it just me, or does anyone else think that Robin Mayer and Sian Blanchflower are complete twats?
Let's see... they screwed over married men whose wives cheat on them, they screwed over married women who can now be abused by the loophole, *AND* they screwed over lesbians, bisexuals, and even gay men by making their sexual behavior legally less equal under the law.
But hey, they really cleaned up on the divorce!
