Couple Who Promised They’d Divorce If SSM Passed Have Failed
Nick and Sarah Jensen famously announced they would divorce if same sex marriage was legalised in Australia.
The country welcomed the wager - amused by the fact that anyone would bat an eyelid if the pair from Canberra called time on their nuptials when they actually seem to be happy together.
More fool them, we thought.
Now, with the INCREDIBLE news that came through yesterday, our attention turned back to Nick and Sarah Jensen, with a metaphoric, ‘check mate.’
I can just imagine their faces as the news passed…
Cut to furious backpedalling as Nick issued a statement to the Daily Mail:
“My previous public comments regarding civil divorce never envisaged me separating from my wife, but rather our marriage from the State. The legislation currently makes it untenable for us to do this under the law. The point we were highlighting and that still stands however is the fact that a redefinition of marriage changes the agreement under which we were originally married. We will be making no further comment.”
Oh you guys… you’re funny.
