It’s a sad day when a wedding planner is heading for divorce instead of helping others get down the aisle, but according to TMZ that’s the case with one of our favorite men on WEtv: David Tutera.
The “My Fair Wedding” host is reportedly ending things with his husband of 10-years, Ryan Jurica, and what’s worse is the couple is currently expecting twins by way of a surrogate.
What could make this split even more complicated is the fact that David and Ryan aren’t actually husband and husband in the legal sense. The partners did have a lavish wedding ceremony in Vermont back in 2003, but as California residents they legally only have a domestic partnership. But David is seeking to end the partnership, citing “irreconcilable differences,” and on top of that he wants full legal and physical custody of the twins, which are due in July. As far as Ryan goes, he’s willing to give him visitation rights to their children.
TMZ says legal documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court also show David doesn’t want to pay Ryan a penny for spousal support — which I didn’t even know was a question in domestic partnerships — and he wants Ryan to pay for all legal fees related to the split. Anyone else feel like Ryan may have dipped out on David and now he’s trying to make him suffer? Jus’ saying.
Either way, here’s hoping these two can at least figure out a way to co-parent if the marriage can’t be saved.
