Ex wife of gay rugby star Keegan Hirst says divorce laws should recognise same-sex affairs as adultery
The law now allows same-sex marriage but divorce doesn't recognise same-sex affairs.When Sara Wilson’s rugby star husband told her he knew he was gay throughout their marriage, she thought her agony could not get any worse. But her pain doubled when he then admitted flirting with men online – and she became convinced his betrayal had gone much further, despite his denials. As Sara and rugby league star Keegan Hirst agreed to part, she decided her best hope of closure was to seek divorce on the grounds of his suspected adultery. Yet Sara, 31, was not to get the peace of mind she craved – because the law says adultery can only happen between a man and a woman.
