    This story has it all. Love, marriage, betrayal, an unexpected pregnancy, domestic violence. [​IMG]

    New York (AFP) - Brittney Griner says she is seeking to annul her marriage to fellow WNBA player Glory Johnson -- who announced this week that she was pregnant.

    The players were married on May 8, weeks after both were arrested in a domestic violence incident in Arizona.

    Later in May, both players were suspended by the WNBA for seven games over the incident, which resulted in charges of disorderly conduct, fighting and assault with intent to injury.

    The WNBA's investigation into the matter found thatimagesa shoving match between the two escalated into a fight in which punches were thrown and both women injured.

    Griner, who led the Phoenix Mercury to the WNBA title last season, told ESPN in a statement on Friday that the couple agreed to split last week.

    "I can confirm that today I filed for an annulment," Griner said. "In the week prior to the wedding, I attempted to postpone the wedding several times until I completed counseling, but I still went through with it. I now realize that was a mistake."

    Griner's remarks came a day after Johnson, a forward for the Tulsa Shock, announced she was pregnant and would miss the 2015 season that opened on Friday.

    Lesbian relationships can be very volatile. And also hot.

    The one thing that was positive about being gay was not having to get married.

    Be careful what you idiots wish for. Enjoy losing half your stuff in a bitter court battle.

    I find it odd that many normal couples are shying away from marriage while same-sex couples are rushing into marriage.

    Wonder if she'll be liable for child support???

    If the NBA would stop subsidizing the WNBA we would be free of this garbage.

    They don't want to have to admit women into the league. Damn misogynists.

    They know anything a man can do, a woman can do better.:rolleye2:

    I watched a WNBA game once. Once. They're fucking terrible. I understand they can't run as fast, jump as high as men. Fair enough. But the majority of them were devoid of skill. They couldn't shoot. It was like watching a game of one-on-one between Ben Wallace and Dennis Rodman. Just awful.

    is the marriage over because the pregnant one cheated with a man?

    and yikes that tall one is hideous.

    It would be tough for that chick to get spousal maintenance out of Griner in Arizona because of the short length of the marriage. Ditto on child support because, obviously, the kid is not Griner's; you've still got to prove paternity. This annulment move is probably being done to stifle any attempt at that.

    I wonder what the back story is on the pregnancy. Was it something the 2 planned, or did she get knocked up unexpectedly by some guy?

    I read an article about that recently. I guess the WNBA was former NBA commish David Stern's :quote: baby :quote: and new commish Silver is not so fond of it.

    It really could go by the wayside, it's never come close to making money. I can't believe the freaking Euros pay big money to watch women's basketball across the pond.

    I remember when Griner came into the WNBA after her college career at Baylor, and there was talk that she was so talented that she could make an NBA squad.

    Shit, she didn't even win Rookie of the Year her first year!

    Unless there was some sort of :quote: agreement :quote: on who the :quote: father :quote: is, how are they gonna establish paternity?

    Who knows, though. If they planned the pregnancy, maybe she got such an agreement before she got knocked up. :dontknow:
