Being that Kris Humphries is a local boy (who long played basketball in the gym where Doug Pagitt hobbles up and down the court thrice weekly), Kim Kardashian’s marriage to him got lots of press in Minnesota. Now that she’s filed for divorce (after 72 days), there’s lots more press. Prompting this letter to the editor in today’s StarTribune:
It must be the threat of gay marriage that broke up the media-hyped, money-making sham of a wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries (“Surprise! Kim calls it quits with Kris,” Nov. 1).Probably the gay couple at my church who have been together for 40 years and faithfully serve and participate every week.
Or maybe my friend’s brother and partner, who lovingly cared for his mother in their home for the final years of her life and have been together for more than 30 years.
Or the real culprit could have been my colleague and partner, who have been together almost 20 years and have adopted two beautiful children and are surrounding them with a multitude of family and friends.
Yes, this celebrity heterosexual marriage can sure teach these gay and lesbian couples a thing or two!
