The initiative to ban divorce has failed to qualify for the upcoming California ballot, LAist reported Thursday.
"Since California has decided to protect traditional marriage, I think it would be hypocritical of us not to sacrifice some of our own rights to protect traditional marriage even more," said Marcotte.
Marcotte's proposal would have amended California's constitution to eliminate the ability of married couples to get divorced while allowing married couples to seek an annulment.
Or in simpler terms, "You said 'Til death do us part.' You're not dead yet."
He needed more than 694,000 signatures by March 22 to qualify.
