Rick Santorum Files for Divorce, Blames the Gays

120224114310-tsr-santorum-wrong-team-00002007-c1-mainFormer Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum filed for divorce today.

According to papers signed by an Allegheny County judge, the former Republican presidential candidate cited irreconcilable differences with his wife of 23 years.

The move comes as a shock to the family and friends of the couple, who have seven children together and always projected an air of marital bliss. But in an interview outside the courthouse with local television station WPAV, Santorum said that he had no choice.

“Unfortunately the homosexuals have ruined my marriage,” he explained to reporter Bruce Nolan. “Every year more and more of them get married, and every year the relationship with my wife gets worse.

“Ever since the Supreme Court struck down DOMA, we’ve been sleeping in separate rooms. It’s like I don’t even know who she is anymore. This is what the gays want: to destroy the institution of marriage. We won’t be the last.”

According to the filing, the pair have agreed to split all assets equally and share joint custody of their children. His wife will keep the family home and automobiles, while Santorum will keep most of the couple’s wardrobe.

Several seasoned divorce attorneys say that such an amicable financial settlement is unusual. But in an exclusive interview Santorum explains money was never really the issue.

“The real problem was in the bedroom,” he says. “My wife kept complaining that I talked too much about gay sex while we were making love.

“I was just trying to explain how all the anal and oral things they do are filthy and disgusting compared to our intercourse. But apparently my wife didn’t appreciate hearing about bears and twinks while I was inside of her.”

Santorum says he’s ready to move on and has already started leasing a bachelor pad in the Logan Circle neighborhood of Washington, D.C.

“Single life is going to be hard,” he laments. “There aren’t a lot of women interested in an aging father of seven. I might have to get creative about who I date.”

Santorum served as Pennsylvania’s senator from 1995 to 2007. He unsuccessfully pursued the Republican nomination for president in 2012, placing second behind Mitt Romney.
