Skip to comments.Same sex marriage alert: Shocking statistics on gay and lesbian infidelity
Posted on 07/19/2012 10:04:31 PM PDT by scottjewell
As more and more states legalize same-sex marriage, this topic continues to dominate the news on a daily basis, both in the United States and abroad.
All across the country, gay, lesbians, and same-sex couples are challenging the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
Yesterday the New York Times, Fox News, the Huffington Post, Reuters and other major media outlets, gave prominent coverage to story of Edie Windsor, the 83-year old widow who is taking her marriage equality battle to the Supreme Court.
Windsor, who was faithful to her now-deceased same sex marriage mate more than 40 years, is an outstanding exception to the statistics on gay and lesbian couples cited below.
Gay and lesbian couples embarking on same sex marriage would do well to check out the statistics on infidelity among lesbians and gays.
. . . The book Sex in America: A Definitive Survey, by authors Michael, Gagnon, Laumann, and Kolata, cites a study of homosexual male couples conducted by gay researchers.
The couples who participated had been together between 1 and 37 years.
Findings were as follows:
100% (all) of the couples experienced infidelity in their relationship within the first 5 years.
Couples who remained together past the 10-year mark were able to do so only by accepting the painful reality of infidelity in their relationship
More than 85 percent of the couples reported that their greatest relationship problems center on issues related to outside relationships.
NOTE: Data from the Gay/Lesbian Consumer Online Census shows that only 29% of gay/lesbian relationships last more than 7 years.

I refuse to get pulled into the weird position of hoping the fags and lesbos are faithful to each other rather than cheating, honestly.
It’s all evil and one evil is no better than the other. I am not “rooting” for gay fidelity.
Yes, I agree that all the media is gay and probably half of Congress, at least.
It’s an easy solution, but they aren’t interested in an easy solution, they just want to pursue their agenda...destruction of the family.
The P/Ms should marry each other. A marriage being between one packer and one muncher, there would be no sex nor jealousy between the married couple, the would get all the social and government benefits of any other married couple, and they wouldn’t even have to live together.
If asked, they could have pictures of their spouse, and go out with other married couples, have barbeques etc.
Now, not so much...
Yep—Kinsey, the pervert, actually stated that sexuality was fluid. Men (and boys) are particularly vulnerable because of their easy sexual arousal. The latency period of boys and girls (6-12) should be innocent, though. and sexualization during this period has negative results. ALWAYS. The normal sexual identity formation requires innocence during latency-—and that is why the sexualization of children is so evil. It warps their worldview of their body and society and focuses on body parts with the removal of dignity and respect (because of their natural immaturity and lack of experience).
Sex Ed was designed to destroy morality in children by Marcuse and the Cultural Marxists. The sexualization in Europe destroyed marriage and the family and killed God. This shows what Jerry Brown is working towards by forcing sodomy normalization in Kindergarten. It will destroy Christian morality and return the Ancient Greek mentality—where women were second class citizens and sexual orgies and child sacrifice was normal.
The object of sexual fixation is formed by environmental factors. (Ancient Greece and Rome/Samurai/Afghanistan all glorified/glorifies sodomy of boys and the practice of homosexuality was rampant.
If children have no sexual identity interference (trauma), and a healthy male and female role models (parents)—they should develop normally unless molested.
I have always believed that the only reason that LGBT and the left are so gung-ho on same-sex marriage is only so they can use it to destroy traditional marriage and the traditional family. Two of the building blocks of civilization.
Ahh...the old 'Wakashudo' two-step.
That is so true. I was always taught that the whole purpose of marriage was not to find a soulmate like in the fairy tales and hollywood movies. It was about the having and reaing of children and the perpetuation of the human race.
Hey, even in heterosexual relationships, those which don’t include a biological child tend to break up at a much higher rate. There are always times in a relationship where it gets hard, where you lose interest, and at those times, you need incentives to stick it out. Money, shared interests, comfort are three of those incentives, but the biggest is the welfare of a biological offspring.
Gay couples will NEVER share a biological offspring, so they can’t have that bond.
Also, as I mentioned elsewhere today, gay socialization is logically fundamentally sexual in nature. For heterosexuals, it is possible to have a clique of friends for which there is no possible sexual tension — same-sex friendships. A group of heterosexual girls can get together to work through issues without any sexual aspect.
But gays simply CANNOT get together in groups without there being a sexual component. It is logically impossible (this is a much-ignored reality of gender attraction, that same-gender attraction is a flawed logical construct because it denies the society a non-sexual grouping).
So, in a heterosexual relationship, when things get rocky, the couple can seek relief of socialization from their same-sex friendships, which can take the stress away from having to socially perform as a couple, without introducing any temptation to stray sexually.
Gay couples can never get into ANY social event without the possibility of being seduced by others. So they naturally succomb more often to such seduction.
The gay lifestyle is entirely founded on sex anywhere, anytime, with anyone. It’s integral to their lifestyle, it’s what they want to do and how they want to live. Monogamy is anathema to the gay lifestyle. It’s te opposite - one has true commitment, the other is sex whenever, wherever, with whoever.
Even gay monogamy is not monogamy. Almost all of them have agreements to have a “Thursday night off” policy so they can troll for anonymous sex with others. As this article confirms. 100% infidelity. Of course, the lifestyle IS all about sex with anyone you want, it should surprise nobody.
Uh....what kind of tires?
I think you’re correct. Same sex marriage is a trojan horse for something much, much broader.
No they're not. They're at least 20-25%. I know because I watch tv and movies. (smirk)

Plato in The Laws, Book IV, has a speaker propose a law that men be required to marry between the ages of 30 and 35 and fined if still unmarried after 35. The same speaker in Book VIII condemns male homosexual relations as unnatural.
With the exception of a very small number of gays, I believe you are right.
Seriously laughing our loud...
This article is a good example as to why social sciences are not real sciences: The authors of the study are comparing the historical infidelity rate of legally married heterosexual couples with the results of a poll of 85 “committed” homosexual couples. The difference in the infidelity rate may very well have nothing to do with being gay or straight and have everything to do with whether the couple is “legally married” in the eyes of the law or “informally committed” in the eyes of the beholder. In addition, there is no indication that the study is based upon stradified random sampling of both heterosexuals as the control group and homosexuals as the experimental group or that other than sexual orientation, both the control and experimental groups are similar in demographics (i.e., age, education, income, geographical location) the age at which they entered into the relationship, or the number of years they dated before they decided to get legally married (for heterosexuals) or commmitted (for gays).
The infidelity rate of “committed” gays may very well be significantly greater than the infidelity rate of “committed” straights, and as more gays legally marry, we may very well learn that the infidelity rate among married gays is significantly higher than married straights. But this particular study proves nothing other than that most social sciences are not real sciences.
I would agree that the methodology leaves much to be desired.
I still do not think same sex marriage ought ever have come into being. But that is based on theory and philosophy.
