an interesting read:
along the lines:
-both husbands can figure out what the partner is feeling better than hetro partners
-argue less often, get over with it better faster
-no gender roles
-generally communicate better
I'm not sure there's any convincing evidence to support this article. Among our good friends is a straight couple who've been together 60 years. My own parents were together over 40 years, until my Mother died. Same with my husband's parents, until his Father died. We know numerous other straight couples whose marriages have lasted decades, and continue.
But then likewise with gay couples. One RJ couple we know are halfway through their 4th decade together. Our closest friends are past 30 years.
I think the issue is compatibility, of course. But that includes living the true sexual orientation you really are. I should never have married a woman, which I did to please my parents, to conform, and frankly to advance my Army career. A post above said what a disaster his own straight marriage was.
Mine, too, ending in divorce. Not that I didn't try to make it work, but I didn't have the natural "talent" if you will.
I learned that we're all happiest and most successful when we live according to our natural orientation. Straights with straights, gays with gays. I notice no difference in the happiness or potential longevity of either type of pairing. Other than we pick a good match for ourselves, which is always problematical, gay or straight. But first get the orientation right.
