Gay Marriage Will Cause More Hetro Marriages To Break Up

Gay marriage will cause more hetro marriages to break up - I think so anyway.

Gay Men and woman in denial who married in the hope they would become straight will now have the courage to come out of their closets.

I'm already seeing this happen....who agrees with me?...or who disagrees with me?

Not necessarily. For example the costs of divorce and child custody battles would deter many.

I agree with you, but are you saying it's a good thing or a bad thing? also, I doubt the numbers would be anything more then a "splash in the ocean" to the numbers of divorces we see today anyways.

It takes a lot of courage to come to terms with who you are as a person, and if someone erroneously marries at a young age and subsequently discovers they are gay, it's better for everyone all round in the long run that they face facts and sort out their affairs.

If the availability of gay marriages causes straight marriages to break up then those unions ought never to have been solemnized in the first instance.

Well good then. That said I think there must be very, very few such examples.

True. But gay marriage now allows the person who made the mistake of marrying a man or a woman to finally face up to the denial of being a gay person.

I sometimes put up a profile of various sites looking for a genuine romance/relationship...(usually a waste of time) and I continue to be gobsmacked by the amount to young guys who recently married and now like a bolt from the blue are realising they may be gay....the've as much as said so themselves.

its a big mental health time bomb and no one is really articulating this aspect when talking about men's depresssion

Marriage is the number 1 cause of divorces: 100% of divorces started with a marriage. Did you know that?

Not really a 'hetro' marriage though is it, when one / possibly two are LGBT+.

Here's to marriages of the agreeable heart

That's the best analysis of the view in the original post (and and a view which I've heard expressed elsewhere from time to time) that I've seen.

Since intimacy, sex and sexuality is integral to marriage, a lesbian or gay person cannot be in a mixed-sex marriage: such a 'marriage' is based on false premise, a pretence, and is in truth not a genuine marriage.

Indeed. Glad someone has pointed out the obvious AND pointed out that perhaps the person is bisexual! Rather than all these assumptions about only being gay!!

Assuming that they will come out and marry one of the same sex?..

Also, too many people wrongly assume that all bisexuals are in unhappy marriages.
Many spouses accept that their partners are bi and they have strong marriages..

yes, but Im thinking about those gay people (not bisexuals) who are married in a hetro marriage and who realise later that they have made a mistake.....there are an awful lot of them in loveless marriages....that is the main point of my post.

Is the term heterosexual marriage a misnomer if one or both are not straight? Do we call them opposite sex marriages?
