According to UK's Office of National Statistics, the couple least likely to split within four years after making it official is composed of:
A. One man, one woman
B. Two women
C. Two men
I'll just scroll down a good bit to preserve the surprise.
There. That should do it.
The answer is C.
And here's the thing: it's not even CLOSE. Heterosexuals married in 2005 were more than twice as likely to split up than gay male couples who entered the UK's separate-but-nearly-equal civil unions. Here's the ONS figures:
Gay men: 1.6%
I cannot mock the antigay "marriage defenders" more thoroughly than they make a mockery of themselves and their so-called "principles." Even so, they continue to viciously attack and erode the rights of gay people in the United States for no legally valid reason and to accomplish no legally valid purpose.
Witness the upcoming referenda in North Carolina and Minnesota where heterosexuals will once again decide whether they wish to retain special rights, privileges, and benefits for themselves, at the expense of a minority.
As usual, straight people will overwhelmingly decide, "I do."
