Canadian Census Shows Same-sex Marriage on the Rise

There are 87 comments on the www.xtra.ca story from Sep 22, 2012, titled Canadian Census Shows Same-sex Marriage on the Rise. In it, www.xtra.ca reports that:

New Statistics Canada census data released Sept 19 show that between the 2006 census and 2011, while the number of traditional families declined, the number of married same-sex couples nearly tripled.

Same-sex married couples make up just 0.8 percent of all married couples in Canada, but this is up 42 percent since 2006.

Same-sex marriage was legalized in 2005, just before the 2006 census -- 13,550 same-sex couples got married between 2006 and 2011.

Common-law same-sex couples also increased 15 percent between 2006 and 2011, slightly more than the average overall increase of 13.8 percent for common-law couples.

Regardless of your wills, trusts, ownership form, or whatever, research how the courts in your state treat such cases. In many places, if the estate is large enough, and the relatives greedy enough, all your preparations could be futile if the court is prejudiced in favor of the relatives. And consult a really good estate attorney.
Correct. The Courts favor blood family over other contracts, even where the family relationship may have been alienated for decades.

I think that people are either strengthened or broken by the trials and tribulations they endure in life. Some of us gay folks either yield to the ones who hate us, and want us in the closet, or we just go on and live our lives, ignoring those who would make us live a life to their choosing. It seems that more and more of us are choosing to fight back, and live our lives on our own terms. We are strengthened, like steel that is forged over and over, and with each set-back, we fight harder. If I had known the dangers and wounds that I would suffer, I probably would not have come out at so young an age (15), but I was supported by my family, and I was oblivious to the dangers I would face. Like you, I am happy I made the choice to follow my path. The rewards are great. The alternative was living in a closet, which I think may have stunted my growth as a human being.
During the last decade I lived in Baltimore I became homeless. My partner had died of cancer and every "dream boyfriend" I let move in became a nightmare. I lost the house.

While working as a driver for a Fresh Produce Delivery Company I heard about a place that might have space for me, my stuff and maybe even my 2 cats.

A "spiritually centered" co-op for HIV+ men.

The man who owned the house had been with is partner since the early 50's. Both had been married. Both also divorced to be with the other.

He and I once talked about the "new world" I grew up in and the one he knew. He and Saul would never "marry"! Men from their time don't do that (He said). But he liked the idea that it could even be a dream now.

One can only pray God will deliver us from any more of NoQ's obsession with penises, deep throating and fecal matter.
