    NYT: So, what happens to a marriage over the course of 10 years? Make that a gay marriage.

    On May 23, 2004, The New York Times printed 41 wedding announcements that included 5 same-sex couples, the first legal gay marriages to appear in these pages. (It began publishing same-sex “celebrations” two years earlier.)

    50% of marriages fail. People's expectations are high here and they consider marriage a failed institution but the human condition being what it is marriage is necessary in most cases.

    another way to look at this is 50% of the marriages continue for a life time.
