    Ronald Reagan - divorced the mother of two of his children to marry Nancy Reagan who bore him a daughter 7 months after the marriage.

    Bob Dole - divorced the mother of his child, who had nursed him through the long recovery from his war wounds.

    Newt Gingrich - divorced his wife who was dying of cancer.

    Dick Armey - House Majority Leader - divorced.

    Senator Phil Gramm of Texas - divorced.

    Governor John Engler of Michigan - divorced.

    Governor Pete Wilson of California - divorced.

    George Will - divorced.

    Senator Lauch Faircloth - divorced.

    Rush Limbaugh - and his current wife, Marta, have six marriages
    and four divorces between them.

    Senator Bob Barr of Georgia - not yet 50 years old, has been married three times. He had the audacity to author and push the "Defense of Marriage Act." The current joke making the rounds on Capitol Hill is "Bob Barr - WHICH marriage are you defending?!?)

    Senator Alfonse D'Amato of New York - divorced.

    Senator John Warner of Virginia - married three times; divorced twice (once from Liz Taylor).

    Governor George Allen of Virginia - divorced.

    Representative Helen Chenoweth of Idaho - divorced.

    Senator John McCain of Arizona - divorced.

    Representative John Kasich of Ohio - divorced.

    Representative Susan Molinari of New York (Republican National
    Convention Keynote Speaker) - divorced.

    The bottom line - "Don't let gays destroy marriage - that's the job
    of the Republicans!"
  3. ART, aren't you divorced?

    If so, does that make you gay or a Republican?
  4. Marriage is a joke and for the insecure who feel a need
    to show their so called "commitment" to others.

    Give me a break.

    Want to prove your committed to someone?

    STAY WITH THEM. Track record is all that matters.

    I know plenty of people who made their relationships
    work far longer than the average marriage.

    With divorce rates sky high, I ask you, who was more committed?

    What was the value of that piece of paper?
    That piece of paper is meaningless. Commitment does not
    exist on paper, or spawn from some ritualistic ceremony.


  5. right on, axe.

    i don't plan on staying with one woman forever, anyway, but even if it ever happens, i'll stay with her because i want to, not because of some ceremony.
