    Your figures may be true for Saudi Arabia or Iran, where execution can intervene nowadays.
    My first relationship: 47 years.
    Mt present one: ten years and counting.
    Most of my gay friends either stayed single or had very long relationships.

    And Heterosexual relationships last how long? How many women have you “been with” in your life and how long did those last?Or are we talking marraige here? 50% of all heterosexual marraiges fail in the first year. Yeah, and why again would homosexuals want to be a part of that number?Take a hard look around and you’ll see that long term relationships fail for most folks. Those that last are the one’s that have give and take, communication and love, the ability to forgive the small faults of each other and the sure knowledge that going through life together is an adventure, challenge and a joy at the same time.

    Better yet, Does it bother “straight” men and women that they have a 50% chance of blowing thousands of dollars on a wedding day just to have it all blow up less than a year later?

    Oh boy. More stereotyping! If your relationships only last less than 2 years, don’t you think it’s time to look with-in, rather than continuing to blame others for your failures? Oh, by the way, 2 years is longer than a lot of straight marriages last, too. Love has no boundaries. Personal hang-ups do.

    Recently i lost a friend, he and his partner had been together for just on 20 years. A guy at my work was similar.Yet I do agree that maintaining a long term gay relationship can be difficult.Could the generally poor support and not really all that interested family opinions be a factor.

    How many families upon hearing that Adam & Steve are having trouble make an effort to help them sort out the issues. Yet if its Adam and Eve most of their families will try to see things fixed up.

    I wonder how many heterosexual relationship are not terminated simply because of the grief that will cause the children.

    Who is smarter.
    The couple who are not happy together and so separate to end the misery:
    Or
    The couple who are not happy but pretend they are to everyone else and so remain in an unhappy relationship.

    I guess Danny you are basing your question on how you see the LGBT community and from your own experiences. There’s a little truth in what you ask, but only a little. Because out there in the big wide world, many gay men and women seek something much more than a fling or short term relationship. Some gay men in particular have the mindset of ‘so many men so little time’. Ironic in today’s world, but some guys just need change and something fresh. The gay guys you don’t see are the ones content with their guy and who just get on with life.Relationships are a 24/7 challenge and take time and energy to maintain. True love helps, but that means loving everything there is about a guy and that can sometimes be too much to ask. If it’s true love, then it’s a doddle, if the guy loves you also. So everything is not what it may seem to you. My last relationship lasted 29 years and only ended because my guy passed away.
