According to an article published by Q-Notes, the Carolinas LGBTQ newspaper, "traditional" marriage has dropped by 50%. You know, if marriage is so sacred, please answer these questions for me:
  • Why has marriage declined by fifty percent?
  • Why are straights choosing not to get married?
  • Why in the hell do you make marriage out to be like some sort of screwed up reality show game like the Bachelor, the Bachelorette and Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire?
  • Why is the divorce rate so high?
  • Why are so many of the people claiming marriage to be "sacred" breaking their vows and cheating on their spouses?
  • Why do you tolerate those screwed up celebrity marriages that last anywhere from a few hours to just a couple of months or less?
The "sanctity" of "traditional" marriage? The "threat" to "traditional" marriage? I hate to burst your bubble... but it ain't us queers who are threatening your "sacred" and "traditional" marriage... its your own damn fault.


There are answers to all your questions in excellent "Marriage - A History", a book by Stephanie Coontz.
