Same-sex Marriages; ’till Divorce Do Us Part

By Hannah Russo | May 21, 2010

While homosexual pressure groups everywhere are clamoring to get gay marriage rights, homosexual couples are also clamoring to end their marriages.

The Daily Beast published an article this week entitled, “15 Ways to Predict Divorce.” Apparently, a great indicator of the likelihood of divorce is same-sex marriage. A study by the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy, (iMAPP) found that male same-sex marriages are 50% and female same-sex marriages are 167% more likely to end in divorce than heterosexual marriages.

By contrast, Catholics have a 28% likelihood to get divorced, while the average married American has a 50% chance of filing for divorce.
