Same-Sex Marriage isn't working

My latest on LifeSite. A key paragraph:

Daily Mail reports that “divorces” among same-sex couples increased from 428 in 2018 to 822 in 2019, and of the 2019 figure, almost three quarters are lesbian couples. (There were also 107,599 actual divorces that year in the U.K., an increase of 20% on the previous year.) Drew ran a clinic to help women in lesbian couples conceive children, and, as she told the Daily Mail, “a third of the 586 lesbian couples [sic] she helped to have babies between 2011 and 2015 have split up.”

  1. Admittedly pedantic question: Why put marriage and divorce in quotation marks in the case of same-sex marriage/divorce? If someone is legally married/divorced, then they are technically married/divorced even if you personally disagree with the law, no? Do you extend this grammatical flourish to religious weddings that are not Catholic or Christian (e.g. would you refer to a Hindu wedding as a 'marriage' and not a marriage?)? Would you put other legal concepts in quotation marks if they go against Catholic teaching?
