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.

It isn't marriage without a MAN and a WOMAN.

It isn't a religion if it denies God.

It isn't music if there is no sound.

Go ahead, choose your own oxymoron...

Absolutely disgusting. Just goes to show what a farce homosexual "marriage" is. I hope these perverts get the help they so desperately need.

Now this makes me sad. I really liked them as a couple. I don't think you've really tried if you've only been married 3 years. Wish they would give it more time.

gay marriage can not can add to civilization fact is that same sex gay men will develop a STD that will have no cure . same sex can not produce an offspring that would follow DNA . Same sex could will bring an incurable STD"s were it will be the future plague on Humans.HPV type 16 1 in 2,900 -may develop cancer. Me would never agree to 2 men adopting a child . There will not be strong enough antibiotics to stop the STD"s that gay sex in men will create.. Kids can be cruel in school and you put a innocent kid threw the bullying he would receive over having gay parents especially 2 men and there will be problems .. With out being able to create a child then the future of a growing a family to contribute like the rest of Americans would never happen . Then for the entitlements they wish with Marriage is only a one way street so that really is Gay

WOW!! Does this really come as a surprise to anyone? "Gay Marriage" is not going to work, no matter how many people that you find to "endorse" this sort of behavior. Jay Z comparing homosexuality to color.... are people really this ignorant? You cannot change the color of your skin anymore than you can change the natural color of your hair or your eyes. Homosexuality is a behavior, a choice that can be changed at any time. It may take discipline, it may take strength and it may take courage, but that is the case with overcoming alcohol abuse or drug addiction as well. Why does no one stick a microphone in front of the individuals or couples that support traditional marriage? You have got to love free press, unbiased reporting and media agencies with no agenda. If only we could find any of those in this day and age....
