Gay divorce

I don't care if gay people get married, yet I respect people who, based on religious beliefs, oppose the idea. But it is hard for me to understand how anyone would not see the silliness of this particular argument about the significance of the first gay divorces.
Opponents of gay marriage said the divorces, occurring so soon after the weddings, confirm that gay couples are not equipped for marriage.
Britney Spears was married for 55 hours. What does that tell us about heterosexual marriages? Nothing. The truth is that certain individuals (not groups of people) "are not equipped for marriage," at least to the particular person who they had chosen for a spouse.
