Harry, you lightly touched upon the key issue here. Who benefits from "gay marriage"? Follow the money. Back in '95, if you asked the gay community what their biggest issues were, you would not have gotten the ability to marry. Wouldn't have even shown up on the list. Since then, however, the divorce attorneys recognized that there was a whole untapped market waiting to be fleeced- er, serviced. A brilliant marketing move ensued to cast marriage (as opposed to civil unions) as a civil rights issue. It took on a life of its own. Just think, what contract is so easy and cheap to get into, that is so difficult and expensive to get out of?

KPar, the statistics are clear. For every 15,000 people, there will be one 'same-sex divorce'.
This is nearly impossible to measure.
Nobody really knows why people want same-sex marriage but divorce is not one of them.

KPar, your theory makes sense until we realize homosexuals won't actually get married.

Then why are we even talking about it? ;-)

Pure fantasy. Since you don't name a source for it, I assume you just made it up in your own head.

You don't happen to be a member of the Divorce bar, are you?

Homosexual activists achieved historic gains in the November 2012 election in the states of Washington, Maine and Maryland. These three notoriously liberal states passed laws extending marriage benefits to homosexual relationships by four to six percentage points. But will these legal victories ultimately deny them the sweeping Supreme Court decision they long for?

Judge Robert Jones of a federal court in Nevada has laid the groundwork for such a conclusion. In his ruling on a lawsuit which sought to overturn Nevada’s ban on gay marriage, Jones wrote that the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) lobby’s success in advancing its...
