Divorce Rates Lower And Education Higher In States Recognizing Same-Sex Marriage

same sex marriage in america

Hmm, we wonder what the correlation here is…

Some studies link age. If marriage takes place later in life, the maturity level is better suited for commitment.

Even more studies link the level of education. The higher the education, the better the marriage.

D'Vera Cohn, senior writer at the Pew Research Center, states:

From what I understand from the research, people who take the time and have the discipline to complete a college degree or more advanced education­­­–those personality traits are also useful in sustaining a marriage.

Other studies find the better the education, the better the community support.

One particular study found for every additional one percent of a county's population with a degree, there was a near equal decrease in support for the banning of gay marriage.

Daniel Smith, who researched the study at The University of Florida, states:

[Higher education] increases exposure to those who are different. Studies show very clearly that the more educated people are, the more tolerant they are of differences.

So basically, two things…

The majority of educated Americans support gay marriage.

The majority of same-sex grooms and brides DO believe in the sanctity of marriage since they're less inclined to divorce.

Something to ponder, world. Something to ponder…

    You have less divorce, perhaps because you have less recognized marriage…get real Perez.

    You have got to stop with the gay posts. I love your site, but everyone just wants to know what the stars are doing. Jeez, enough!!!

    Wow. The way you stretch things in order to connect the dots of your agenda is astounding. Simply astounding. And delusional.

    i dont understand why you are always shoving this shit down our throats, i mean lets be honest, even IF same sex marriage would be allowed in each state of america…

    …who would want to marry YOU?! everyone knows how fake and pathetic you are, even the gays… so why bothering?

    Is anyone surprised that with education comes tolerance?

    Here's something to ponder. Why have hits to your site plummeted since it became a resource for your gay agenda? I'm going to assume states with a higher level of education don't pay any attention to Hilton's theories either.

    Did you even read the article? If so, obviously you don't have much education, because it didn't say anything about gay divorce rates. In fact, it ends by saying that gay divorce rates won't really affect general divorce rates since there are so many fewer gay couples.

    I support gay marriage but lets be honest, these results are extremely skewed considering there's very few places that recognize gay marriage and it's only been in existence very recently. Hence, no time to even get divorced if you've just gotten married last year…

    It hasn't been around long enough for them to be able to conclude what you are trying to get at . . .

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – Why should we ever tolerate something we don't believe in!!

    If you don't stand up for what you believe in you stand for nothing…and yes I have an MBA!

    Gay marriage is wrong….marriage is between God and a man and a woman….keep your civil unions and shut the fuck up!

    You shouldn't even post this. Everyone knows why this is a bum statistic. I don't even have to say why.

    @Kim K's Ugly Hippo Ass - I'm an atheist, yet I'm married and God has no part of my marriage. Your point fails.

    Re: Yomama

    Polls proportionately conclude the results.

    That's why it's called percentages. Remember fractions in grade school? Yeah, something like that…

    I see a bunch dumb twits on here thinking scientific research doesn't know what it's doing mathematically.

    @Kim K's Ugly Hippo Ass MBAs use question marks and logic; you do not.

    Re: b a t k i s s – Right? Holding an MBA does not mean you have any intelligence; it only means you can pass business classes, which in my extensive experience with academia, does not equate intelligence.
