In a Sunday post on the Daily Beast, Gene Robinson — who made history (and endured death threats) when he was elected in 2003 and later delivered a benediction at President Obama's first inauguration — announced that he and his husband, Mark Andrew, are splitting after over 25 years together. "My belief in marriage is undiminished by the reality of divorcing someone I have loved for a very long time," he wrote. "It is at least a small comfort to me ... to know that like any marriage, gay and lesbian couples are subject to the same complications and hardships that afflict marriages between heterosexual couples." Sorry, people — it can really happen to anyone.
