Mating behavior is not dependent on marriage. Again, are you serious??? No wonder you are so confused.<quoted text>
OK... Let's look at "real America". In 2008, just over 40% of live births in this country were to single parent households. That's up from 18.4% in 1980.
I thought that evolutionary mating behavior (from a cross cultural perspective) depended on marriage.
Don't throw gays under the bus just because you straight people can't seem to stay married.
Hundreds of thousands of us would love to be given the opportunity to marry someone for life.
You can't predict whether or not a gay couple will divorce any more than I can predict whether or not a straight couple will.
Marriage is a constraint (control) on mating behavior. Because the commitment of marriage has been weakened by easy divorce, and the consequences to children ignored, broken marriages and co-habitation have resulted. Calling ss couples married by totally removing children only exasperates the situation.
Social scientists assert that marriage would not exist except for the connection of children. Your premise that sterile gay couples will strengthen marriage is baseless. In fact, that is why the largest, latest and most scientific study to date on seven family types found lesbian couples last, AFTER single mothers. Gay couples did not even register out of THREE THOUSAND participants.
Not looking good VV...
