The one thing I admire about the gay community is how the couples want to get married to show their commitment to each other, whereas; heterosexual couples either fly from one partner to another or live in "relationships" for years, even decades .... without marriage. I wonder what kind of adults will emerge from kids born in such households. Would they be any better than the dysfunctional ones that come from LGBT households? I doubt it.

Gay weddings made up 17 percent of marriages in Washington this past year, the first year gay marriages were legal in the state, state officials reported Wednesday.
About 7,071 same-sex couples got married in Washington between December 6, 2012, and the most recent complete month of data, September 2013. There were 42,408 total marriages in the state during that time, according to the Washington State Department of Health.
So far, most of Washington state's same-sex marriages, 62 percent, were between two women.
Washington is one of 15 states plus the District of Columbia where gay marriage is legal, but few have the kind of detailed data Washington released this week, in part because gay marriage is so new in most places.
According to the 2010 Census, there were about 152,335 same-sex married couples and 440,989 same-sex unmarried couples in the United States.
According to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, during the first year and a half after gay marriage became legal, 8,181 same-sex couples got married. Between May 2004 and the end of 2012, 22,406 gay couples got married in Massachusetts..........
