Delicious irony, Debra, just delicious. I'm afraid, however, that Mr. Rauch is delusional. I'm an old, white straight man but I've got enough gay friends to know that they still have multiple partners, many multiples in most cases and their "committed relationships" are often ephemeral.

I have enough straight friends to know that there is an awful lot of cheating going on out there.

BFDOFR - Also, Back in the '70's I had two gay brothers-in-law who were involved in a 'club' with over two hundred other gays and lesbians. There was rampant 'intermingling' but the worst part was that there were many who could not be trusted near my wife's kids. And that included her brother's partners. My wife damn near killed one she caught in the act.

I wonder if you know your gay friends better than the "my gay friends are monogamous & healthy" people do, or if you're just more honest about what you see in their lives.

As famous Russian satirist Mikhail Zhvanetsky put it: "The first law of argument is to find something to ridicule of your opponent. How can a man with such nose be right?"
Please note: satire.

Marriage returned to the two-parent union of a 1950s sitcom on Tuesday as the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the legal challenge to Proposition 8, the California-voter-approved measure that banned same-sex marriage in 2008. Urging the court to overturn Prop. 8, attorney Ted Olson argued that the law stigmatized same-sex couples by consigning them to a status that labels "their most cherished relationships as second-rate, different, unequal and not OK."

It's a complete turnaround for California, the state that pioneered dismissing marriage as a meaningless legality. In 1976, the California Supreme Court recognized the notion of "palimony"...
