Jane Lynch

Files for Divorce

7/12/2013 4:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jane Lynch
is a woman of her word ... a month after announcing her marriage to wife Lara Embry was over, the actress has filed for divorce.

Jane just filed the docs in L.A. County Court, citing "irreconcilable differences." The 52-year-old "Glee" star met 44-year-old Embry back in 2009 at a fundraiser in San Francisco. They were married a year later in Massachusetts and registered for a domestic partnership in California soon after.

According to the doc, Jane and Lara have been separated since February. There are no minor children.

In the doc, Jane says she wants to terminate the court's jurisdiction to award Lara spousal support.

Sources connected to the couple have told TMZ they do NOT have a prenup, which means they can expect a 50/50 split of all marital assets ... but that will all be determined later.

I repeat, now everyone has a right to get married, divorced & go to family court. And mustn't forgot to add alimony to the list.
Just because you have the right to get married, don't be so anxious to get married. I know you get legal rights, but your partner also gets the right to alimony. Do they marry you for love or love of money?

It's like all you homophobes forget that straight people get divorced too.

Be careful what you wish for.

The next hit reality TV show will be " Gay Divorce Court".

The entertainment will be watching who pays support and why.

Joe Eszterhas may have been right.

Unfortunately ... so many gay couples are living in terror right now. Several famous wealthy gays have openly said they are feeling the "noose around their neck" as their partners are now pressuring them to get married when they don't really want to.
Ahhhh welcome to the joys of matrimony ... and alimony ... and community property ... and child custody fights ... and all the other miseries that go along with divorce.

"There are no minor children." Really? If the stupid bimbos had simply shacked up like normal lesbians they wouldn't be in TMZ today. Hopefully they both learned their lesson about marrying a person of the same sex....

What a joke! Regardless of whatever you people want to call it, this will NEVER be considered normal. "How many leg's does a dog have if you call a tail a leg? Four. Just because you call a tail a leg, doesn't make it a leg." ~ Abraham Lincoln.

Now the idea of same sex marriage doesn't sound so good! Heterosexual people keep courts busy with their divorces, imagine adding the burden of divorcing all these gay peoples? Of course governments would cash in on court fees since these people are extremely promiscuous, I'm just saying.....

I guess all the gays and lesbians are finding out what straight folks knew all along. Marriage isn't all it's cracked up to be. Enjoy the downside of the thing you are fighting so hard for.
