Thrice-married FL GOP Att. Gen. says gays have unstable families

Oh the irony.  Conservative Republican Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi opposes giving gay couples the right to marry because, among other reasons, she worries about the “stability” of gay couples.

This, from a woman who’s on her third marriage. Well, I should say, her third marriage-ish.

Bondi’s first two marriages lasted under-two years and five years, respectively. But at least they were “real” marriages. Bondi’s most recent marriage was reportedly “an unofficial (non-binding) ceremony in the Cayman Islands.”

Yes, Florida’s great defender of traditional marriage is alleged to have an untraditional marriage-lite from the place people go to hide their bank accounts.

The Tampa Bay Times quotes Bondi’s response to a pro-gay-marriage lawsuit in Florida:

“The promotion of family continuity and stability is a legitimate state interest,” she wrote. “Florida’s marriage laws, then, have a close, direct, and rational relationship to society’s legitimate interest in increasing the likelihood that children will be born to and raised by the mothers and fathers who produced them in stable and enduring family units.”

And lest anyone worry that perhaps Bondi’s three, sorry, two-and-a-half marriages were due to her first two husbands’ sudden tragic deaths, the Miami Times reports that Bondi is twice divorced.

So how exactly does Bondi’s third not-quite-marriage work if she and the beau ever have kids? Contraception isn’t 100%, though being a good Christian we assume that Bondi and her not-quite-husband spend their free time playing pinochle.
