SAN DIEGO – The wife of San Diego developer Doug Manchester, who helped finance the 2008 fight against same-sex marriage in California, has filed for divorce after 43 years of marriage.


Last year, Doug Manchester jumped into the middle of California’s same-sex marriage debate by donating $125,000 to support Proposition 8, the successful November ballot initiative that canceled the rights of gays to marry.

Gay-rights groups organized a boycott of Manchester properties. Manchester, a Catholic, later offered $125,000 in cash and hotel credit to same-sex rights groups, saying he’s against gay marriage, not gays and lesbians. The boycott continues.

There’s an irony here somewhere. He needs to get his concept of the issue of gay rights straight.
