Study: Same-Sex Marriages Just As Boring, Tedious As Opposite Marriages

An “IowaWatch study found that similarities range from the way men and women often view marriage to the more mundane tasks of married life, such as doing yard work. Like people in traditional marriages, same-sex couples also talk about raising children and shielding them from the verbal slings of peers, the stability and unit-strength of a family and the value of loving relationships among parents and children, as well as legal necessities and financial security.” [via]

      There’s nothing so effective as domesticity to kill romanitic excitement, yes.
      So who’s shocked?

      other than federal benefits i don’t see why anyone’d want to even have gay marriage (or any marriage)… yes, it’s a sure way to kill all feelings. marriage was meant for those who wanted to breed, to control property relations, and also to ensure women were treated like property themselves, and later turned into a tool for women to control men (financially). other than that don’t see any use for it.

      yeah, aren’t we so similar!

      Just no benefits, no tax releif, no social visiting rights, no inheritance by law, no foster rights – and apart from like everything else – they are the same
