The buck stops here -- at least as far as going beyond a divorce is concerned.

A couple of days ago, My Husband's Not Gay was a trending topic on Twitter.
The TLC special's provocative title was responsible for much of the interest.
Two Mormon men featured on the show admit to having Same Sex Attraction, but are married to women.
Homosexuality is not allowed in the Church. The men aren't engaging in "a gay lifestyle" but have "Same Sex Attraction" — and their wives are fine with it.
Essentially, they argue having homosexual thoughts is okay, but acting upon them is not. One wife explains:
"The line is a black and white line when it comes to being married in the eyes of God. It would make no difference whether Pret was going and having inappropriate relations with a man or if I was going and having inappropriate relations with a man."
Not all agree, however. GLAAD President Sarah Kate Ellis responded:
"This show is downright irresponsible. No one can change who they love, and, more importantly, no one should have to. By investing in this dangerous programming, TLC is putting countless young LGBT people in harm's way."
The network has no plans on pulling My Husband Is Gay, which airs this Sunday, saying the special presents "real people and different ways of life, without judgment."
