I have a lot of respect for marriage.......that's why I value my wedding vows and commitment to my wife......half of opposite-sex couples can't say that, can they?

It's a pity you deny the truth the way you do....

Really, you have stats that confirm more Gays and Lesbians are divorcing? or is that just a half azz plea to make it seem as straights aren't as bad as they really are at trashing the institution of marriage?

It is you that can't handle the truth!!!

Divorce statistics result from government records, cupcake. You can't track divorce statistics for gays in those states where bigots like you have prohibited them from marrying in the first place. You whine when gays have their marriages legally recognized and now you whine because there are no official government statistics for activities you've barred them from participating in. You really are just a whiny b*tch.

So, you really don't have any idea what the rate of divorce is for married Gay and Lesbian couples are, YET you thought it was okay to pull this crap outta your azz.......and sorry, but Divorce Statistics are available in states that have granted the right to marry.....like in Massachusetts:-)

Sorry, but Gays and Lesbians aren't using propaganda like you claim, but your side does every day!!!

They shouldn't have to be.......the marriages aren't divided into two separate categories in the files at the County Clerks office and neither should the divorces when they happen!!!

No, it's you who made the comment about a higher percentage of Gays and Lesbians are not true to their vows.......or commitment......but then as usual give no evidence to back up your claims except more BS!!!

Then go review the public records of the divorce decrees if you don't like the way the government is providing statistics. Do you think the government is your personal secretary?

If the published divorce statistics are a combination of data for both gays and straights, then then the overall divorce rate is a weighted average of any subgroups contained therein. The rate for any subgroup would be based solely on the data for the subgroup, not the rate of the overall population plus the subgroup.

Thanks for confirming statistics is another area in which you totally lack any knowledge or education.

Changing other people's quotes; how emotionally immature of you, Fool. And hypocritical as well since you've been whining about what you perceive as my immaturity today in another thread simple for using an accurate (albeit derogatory) word to describe you.

Not 'changing'..."Fixing "....there's a 'big' difference between the two...but I wouldn't expect an emotionally immature person to understand that....
