    Sounds a little queer, doesn’t it?

    I suspect this is a reference to this; when the word gay had only its original meaning.

    It will also mean an increase in income for divorce lawyers,

    The average in europe is 2 years.

    Given how they choose to live, I’m surprised it’s that long. Extreme promiscuity was the rule, rather than the exception in the areas I’ve lived with large homosexual populations. Made for a lot of bad feelings among them because they were not actually able to commit to each other. Do a commitment, then in two days, see some other guy or gal. Then a fight, usually a breakup, often a violent one.

    Will they be donning their gay apparel then?

    A film starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Of course, the reference will be lost on most people.

    Does that mean there’ll be a rise in co-respondents with cheezie Italian accents? Cool….

    It’s hard to form a deep commitment when society condemns that kind of relationship. As the non-gay community becomes more accepting, perhaps we will see more committed relationships. Either because there will be more of them, or because we will be willing to see the ones that have always been there.

    Nab, I have seen a few cases such as you describe. I also knew one gay couple who were together around 50 years. When one of them died, the other almost died from the grief. I also know a lesbian couple going on ten years and another gay couple over 25 years together and going strong. As some other commentor pointed out, it looks a llot like the straight population. I have a straight high school and another college friend who are both on their third or fourth wives now. Does this make them evil like the gays? I do not think so. And as more gay people are permitted to make meaningful committments, it will reduce the pool of those with which to fool around.

    It is miserable in most cases. I’ve been around 1 stable homosexual commitment (females), but had homosexual male neighbors that were “drama queens”.

    Marriage, or any long term relationship is only as good as what both parties are willing to put into it. It requires sacrifice, patience, humor and of course love. I have known many gay and straight relationships that have lasted lifetimes ( with and without benefit of clergy ). I have known others that were doomed from the outset.
    Gay or straight, marriage isn’t easy. While the novelty lasts, gay marriage and divorce will be sensationalized. Twenty years from now when the Nabuquduriuzhurs and other moribund thinkers are long gone, people will wonder what all the fuss was about
