Legalized same-sex marriage may provide couples with more than just legal benefits. A new study suggests gay men who get married may be healthier than unmarried gay men.
For the study, published in the Dec. 15 issue of the American Journal of Public Health, researchers compared health records on 1,211 gay patients at a community health clinic in Massachusetts in the years before and after same-sex marriage was legalized in 2003.
What did the researchers find? In the year after same-sex marriage was legalized, gay and bisexual men who got married were significantly less likely to visit the clinic for medical and mental health care. Married men saw reductions in their hypertension, depression, and frequency of stress-related disorders called adjustment disorders, health records showed. These reductions contributed to a 13 percent drop in health care visits in the year following legalization of same-sex marriage. Lesbians were not included in the study because not many visited the clinic.

If you wanna REALLY be healthy, try not sticking things in your butt...
So "marriage" among gays may be some sort of palliative measure but doesn't really cure their core issues.
Well, marrige reduces Promiscuity.....
Oh fscking barf!
There are ZERO physiological benefits, they’re all psychological.
Who the hell finances these sick “studies?”
There are no virtues in extolling self-described “virtues” of depravity.
Who would think that toning down rampant promiscuity would improve health?
That would be whomever finances the American Journal of Public Health. (Emphasis on the "public" aspect, of course.)
Who the hell finances these sick studies?
In every Homo relationship there is still a guy and a girl. The guy will stray just like in hetero relationships.. Its all sick and perverted. Who really GAF?
Does the "girl" ever get pregnant . . . ?
In every Homo relationship there is still a guy and a girl
I a speaking metaphorically, there is the macho male and effeminate sub.

Sure...They picked up their partners health benefits and no longer have to go to “the clinic”.
Probably because the under or unemployed got medical benefits from “marriage” to their fully employed butt buddies. They could go to an HMO instead of the gay clinic.
The problem is that very few want to marry or can stay married. That is never likely going to change.
Yes and no. Some homosexuals redefine monogamous to mean something else: married or living with one person but free to do anybody else.
We may not approve their marriage, but I believe this is one of the mechanism that leads to the findings. The other factors including some level of emotional (and perhaps economic) stability.
And usually both get “Thursday Night Off”. If ya know what I mean.
They both get some “strange” when they want it.
There is no such thing as monogamy with homosexuals. It’s counter to the lifestyle, the whole point is to be able to have sex whenever, wherever, with whoever they want. Anytime, anywhere.
