Jimmy refuses to acknowledge the paint or the corner, ergo that can't be true...

What you are leaving out of the equation is that for many heterosexual people, marriage is their sole avenue to a sex life. That is rarely the case for gay people - and can have serial "emotional" romances throughout their lives.

Which means that when a gay couple decides to marry and promise fidelity, it is about much commitment and responsibility than merely "emotional response."

In addition, there are many gay couples, like me and my spouse, who raised a son who IS mine biologically from another relationship. So, though we did not "create" this man (he's a man now LOL) together, we were committed to sacrificing and loving and raising him. And, doing that - WITHOUT all the bells and whistles of support, legal protections, etc that straight couples receive automatically - requires even more conscious decision than with straight couples.

I believe that is why the divorce rate for gay people is so low. When a gay couple decides to wed, it REALLY means something...it's not just another reason for a dj powered party.

Rather than troll, why don't you explain what corner I am painted into.

Rather than continue this absurd train of insults, why don't you stick to the subject of the original post.

Or, in other words, GROW THE FUCK UP.
