Ban Gay Marriage To Save Grown Children From Killing Themselves

If there’s no same-sex marriage, then there can be no same-sex divorce. And it’s divorce, found University of Toronto researchers, that’s an indicator for whether grown adults whose parents split when they were kids are more likely to attempt suicide. Finally, reasonable ammunition for same-sex marriage opponents! “Men whose parents divorced when they were children were three times more likely to seriously consider suicide (suicidal ideation) than other men,” relays USA Today. “Adult daughters of divorced parents were 83% more likely to have suicidal thoughts than those whose parents stayed married. The connection between divorce and suicidal ideation was particularly strong for men who grew up in families with childhood stressors, such as physical abuse, parental addiction and parental unemployment. The link between parental divorce and suicidal ideation was no longer significant among women who did not experience these childhood stressors. But even without these stressors, adult men who were children when their parents divorced still had a twofold increased risk of suicidal ideation compared to men from intact families.” Of course the real solution isn’t to ban gay marriage. It’s to ban divorce.
