Jane Lynch

My Gay Marriage Is Over

6/10/2013 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0610_jane_lynch_laura_embry_gettyJane Lynch is pulling the plug on her marriage to wife Dr. Lara Embry ... just 3 years after tying the knot in Massachusetts, where gay marriage is legal.

Lynch just released a statement to People.com saying, "Lara and I have decided to end our marriage. This has been a difficult decision for us as we care very deeply about one another."

The 52-year-old "Glee" star met 44-year-old Embry back in 2009 at a fundraiser in San Francisco ... and they married in 2010.

Lynch and Embry are California residents and a California court will almost certainly dissolve the marriage, even though gay marriages are not legal in California.  The State recognizes marriages from places where gay marriage is legal.

Now ... California is a community property state, which means unless there's a prenup, Lynch and Embry would split all assets acquired during the marriage 50/50.  Although Embry's no slouch, Lynch has made a bundle on "Glee" and other projects.

Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ ... they don't have a prenup.

Most of gay people ARE NOT ABLE TO LIVE as a married couple!
They are not able to accept their own social status ... hiding behind anything but not the real love and ... sincere devotion....
If most of them want to have sex (repeatedly, without being promiscuous), its not necessary to get married..., do use condoms....

Why are people so set against gay marriages? They obviously don't have a better success rate than a "Biblical" marriage!

Question    

I know TMZ isn't exactly the place for PC language, but I find it incredibly offensive that Lynch/Embry's divorce is simply being characterised as a "gay marriage". Especially when Harvey Levin is gay. I'm sure he doesn't affix "gay" in front of everything he does.

Welcome to the new game of Divorce. You will soon learn to appreciate losing half of everything you own and have to pay your ex-spouses expenses for the rest of your life.
I love equality!

Gee, and here I thought it was only "homophobic conservatives" who were standing in the way of gay marital bliss.
