The Office of National Statistics in the UK say that over the last five years 5.5% of opposite sex marriages have ended in divorce while only 2.5% of same sex civil partnerships have been dissolved. We are talking about 2.5% of 42,000 civil partnerships.
What does this mean? Do same sex couples take the commitment more seriously than opposite sex couples?
The report also shows that people living in European countries which have recently legalised same sex partnerships have a far more positive attitude to homosexual marriage than in those countries where there is no such law.
