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.

How sweet, two Fa$$ots flirting with each other. Get a fking room.
Sorry, NoIQ, but this is our room. Why don't you and your fellow bigoted morons get your own room? Then you can hurl homophobic slurs at each other until you're screaming in orgasmic ecstasy.

Thanks, Lacez. I like reading yours as well. And you do make me miss Montreal, where I lived in my early 20s. It was so long ago that Boul. René-Lévesque was still called Dorchester St., and the metro ended at Frontenac!

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.
Based on that they owe us

The best here is supposedly at La Banquise, though I have yet to go because my boyfriend made me promise that we'd go together for our first times.

Yea, if perversion is a compliment to you Fa&&ots then so be it. Just goes to show you how warped you creatures are
Yet you continue to spend all your time here among us. If you weren't such a pathetic loser, you might have friends of your own. Well maybe one. Probably your mother. And even she would probably have serious reservations.
