BOSTON, February 3, 2009 ( – Julie and Hillary Goodridge, the lesbian couple who led the fight for same-sex “marriage” in Massachusetts in 2003, filed for divorce in Suffolk Probate and Family Court last Thursday, the Boston Herald reported yesterday.

The two lesbians, who share custody of their 12-year-old daughter Annie, “married” on May 17, 2004, the first day same-sex “marriages” became legal under a Massachusetts court ruling.

It was reported that the couple broke up two years after their ground-breaking “wedding.”

Kris Mineau, president of the Massachusetts Family Institute, a pro-family public policy organization founded on Judeo-Christian values, commented on the development: “Divorce is a very painful issue, but I also can’t help but reflect on the pain this couple has caused the commonwealth (of Massachusetts) and the nation to redefine marriage. And now they’re getting divorced? It doesn’t make a lot of sense,” Mineau said.

“Obviously, they don’t hold the institution in very high esteem.”
