05 Feb Will Same-Sex Couples Save Marriage?
It seems they’re doing just that.
Homosexual couples, the world over, have found an “innovative” way to make marriage happier and last longer. In fact, the idea is so revolutionary that The New York Times recently ran a story about it.
The Gay Couples Study (cited in the story) has followed 556 male couples for three years — about 50 percent of those surveyed have sex outside their relationships, with the knowledge and approval of their partners.
I know, it doesn’t seem like a good idea, but keep reading.
The study found open gay couples just as happy in their relationships as pairs in sexually exclusive unions… A different study, published in 1985, concluded that open gay relationships actually lasted longer.
Now does it sound so bad?
Well, the writer left out some details.
The longest relationship of any couple cited in the article began in 2002, and, oh yeah, according to studies done in 2003, the average length of homosexual relationships was 18 months. I guess that wasn’t worth mentioning.
You might say, “But homosexual couples might not have adopted this ‘open’ relationship idea until recently.” That’d be wrong.
In a study of 156 long-term homosexual relationships done in 1997, not one of the 156 couples was able to maintain sexual fidelity for more than five years, and most maintained a monogamous relationship for less than one year.
This isn’t a new idea; it’s just never been cast in such a good light.
This article is a reminder that the adoption of same-sex marriage into our culture is not just welcoming homosexual couples into our monogamous tradition, it’s a step towards destroying monogamy altogether.
Especially if heterosexual couples start taking unsound marriage advice.
