It’s about acceptance of lifestyle

“The most recent U.S. Census data reveal that in the last 15 years only one in five or 150,000 same-sex couples have taken advantage of legal recognition. This is less than six tenths of one percent of the population. And since two-thirds of legally recognized same-sex couples in the United States are female, the number of committed men seeking marriage is about two tenths of one percent of the population.”

“In the Netherlands, gay marriage is actually declining in popularity. 2,500 gay couples married in 2001 -- the year it was legalized -- since then it has declined more than 50%. In 2009 more than 98% of marriages in the Netherlands were to opposite-sex couples.”

“For some in the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, the same-sex marriage argument is a cover for advancing a demand for universal legal acceptance of their particular lifestyle.”
