Rocker Melissa Etheridge and her partner, actress Tammy Lynn Michaels Etheridge, have announced their separation. In a statement Thursday, they asked for "consideration and respect for our family as we go through this difficult period."It's sad to hear when couples separate. Of course, it could be the best thing for both of them, but that isn't the first thing most of us think about when we hear "separation". Maybe I romanticize relationships too much and think that every relationship starts with the hope that it will be "the one".
Part of me wishes gay couples in the public eye wouldn't have any problems and would stay together forever. I want to show non-supporters that we can make it through anything. But I know that gay relationships no different than straight relationships, and that means anything and everything can happen.
Good luck, girls.
