Jane Lynch

Files for Divorce

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.

These MFawkers have been ramming it down our throats about wanting to get married but these azzholes can's keep a marriage. Jane Lynch, Rosie, Melissa Etheridge were only married for a few years and now divorced or getting divorced. You fought for this and now you're making a joke of it! Go fawk a ****!

Truth    

She shouldn't be allowed to get a divorce. ALL gay people should have to be married to someone. You have certainly aggravated the rest of us enough about it. You have no excuse. Now GET MARRIED.

This is why I support gay marriage....gay divorce. Now they get to suffer through marriage only to find out it wasn't worth it.

This is exactly why gays should not be allowed to marry. They could give a #$%#$&% less about the sanctity of marriage. She's just trying to have a shorter marriage then Kim fat-as&ian.

I just don't understand all these gays who fight so hard for marital rights and seem to be having higher divorce rates than straight people. I just saw Jane and her wife on Joan Rivers' reality show telling the romantic story of how they met. And now they're history...?

Oh, and I'm gay.

common sense    

and gays say that their "loving unions" last longer and are more committed than a marriage between a man and a woman.

The marriage was not even quite federally legit; now she's further sullying it by renouncing it within a year or two? At least they didn't buy a few rugrats who'll have to grow up in a typical alienated H-Wood split divorce relationship, lesbian style this time. That's a plus.

Reason given for the divorce...
"Irreconcilable similarities".

Well, there we go. A PhD clinical psychologist and a Movie star should have had little to worry about in their magical same sex marriage. They surely could have analysed their differences, talked about it? They were 'married' for erhhm months. Waste of paperwork or deviant relationship? Or both.
