    Default Gay marriage does not work - men are just too predatory, says Pete Burns

    When he flashed his engagement ring on the sofa with Richard and Judy, pop star Pete Burns told of his happiness at the prospect of becoming the latest celebrity to marry his male partner.


    But now, just ten months after the big day, the singer has split from Michael Simpson, saying civil partnerships do not work and that he was happier being married to a woman.
    Burns, 49, who was wed to stylist Lynne Corlett for 28 years, said gay relationships were a "commercial break" compared with the "full movie" of marriage.

    Pete Burns dresses as a geisha girl on his wedding day with Michael Simpson. But he says that gay marriages do not work because men are too predatory



    He also claimed there were too much "promiscuity" in the gay community for civil partnerships to thrive.
    Burns followed in the footsteps of Sir Elton John and Little Britain star Matt Lucas in using the new civil partnership laws to announce his public devotion to his lover.
    He dressed as a geisha girl in a kimono for the ceremony in London on July 7 last year.
    He told The Mail on Sunday he had been "optimistic" about his civil partnership, but now he says: "I learned the hard way. It's a total joke."
    Burns accused Simpson, 40, of being unfaithful and admitted he felt disillusioned. Burns added that some gay couples had "open marriages" where the partners could be unfaithful.
    He said: "There's a lot of promiscuity in the gay community. I don't understand why they take that union. How low is their self-esteem?
    "One's on Hampstead Heath meeting men, the other one's hiring rent boys. "Surely marriage is throwing anchor and saying, 'This is where I'm staying, I've made my choice and this is all I want because I've been on the up and down escalator, through the revolving door and I want to stand still.' That's what I expected."
    He added: "I don't know what goes on in many heterosexual marriages but I know mine was 28 years.

    Pete, with ex-wife Lynne Corlett, says he preferred being married to a woman



    As far as I was concerned that was for ever, and it would have been, but she needed to find her own life.
    "She was the best 'husband' I ever had. You sometimes meet a person who you completely love. We're still really, really close. It's not about sexuality, it's about the person."
    Since the Civil Partnership Act came into force in December 2005, there have been 18,000 gay marriages in Britain.
    Burns said: "I view marriage as a sacred institution. I think two men naturally are predators. Gay relationships are a commercial break, not a whole movie.
    "The relationships I'm aware of, apart from one ... it's as though there's some kind of emotional inadequacy or narcissism, where they feel emotionally inadequate and need more validation, from either a father figure or a mirror image of themselves. "I'm not condemning it, I think it needs researching and help."
    Burns and his band Dead Or Alive had a No1 hit with You Spin Me Round in 1985, but his career went into decline until he went on Celebrity Big Brother in 2006.
    He met Simpson at Joe Allen restaurant in Soho in 2003. They announced their engagement on Channel 4's Richard & Judy Show in 2006.
    Last week, police launched an investigation after Burns alleged that Simpson had assaulted him at home, breaking his collarbone.
    Burns said he wanted to file for divorce. He added: "Would I get married again? If somebody knocked me on the head with a nine-inch nail-studded plank or drugged me with benzodiazepine ... No, no, no."
    Derek Munn, of the gay rights organisation Stonewall, said: "Civil partnerships have brought joy and fulfilment to thousands of lesbian and gay couples.
    "Just as with marriage, some relationships may fail." Mr Simpson was unavailable for comment.

    That is not always true by any means. I know several gay guys that have been with their partners for decades. If they cheat they must not mind.

    ^Yeah, the gay couples I know have been together longer and are more devoted to each other than the straight couples I know.

    No, Pete, gay marriage just doesn't work for you. Go back to being irrelevant, please.

    I had no idea he was married to a woman~~ much less for almost 3 decades.

    Ironic, given the fact that I literally just finished reading this article before I came over here: Are Gay Relationships Happier and Healthier Than Straight Ones? | BlogHer

    Many men, gay or straight, seem to be incapable of remaining faithful and monogamous. If you marry someone who already has a track record for being a party animal with a string of casual flings (gay or straight) then the marriage is doomed anyway.

    That's what I am stuck on trying to wrap my mind around.

    Pete Burns didn't always look like the Bride of Frankenstein. Back in the day he did actually look like a bloke (kinda).

    I agree with the first sentence, but not so much with the second-sometimes it just takes people time to 'settle down', mature, or get to the point where they want to be monogamous.

    This 'man' is a freak on the order of wacko Jacko anyway so who cares what his ass thinks. He can fuck himself(and probably has) )
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    Yeah, he looks like a freak show now but back in the day:




    And there are people, homo or hetero, who are incapable of marriage. Sexual preference has nothing to do with it.
