Now all of a sudden they want to mimic it? You know what... I would actually buy that somewhat for the women. I don't buy it at all for the homosexual men. I expect the following to bear out with time:
1. Homosexual marriages will be much more rare among homosexuals than heterosexual marriages.
2. Homosexual marriages will be much more common among homosexual women than homosexual men.
3. Homosexual divorces will be somewhat higher than heterosexual divorces with the men skewing the numbers while the women probably faring about as well as heterosexuals, in general.
4. Within ten yeas, the homosexual marriage novelty will have worn off and the rate of homosexual marriage will drop to nearly zero with the exceptions being women that want to have kids and men who want to rob their sugar daddies through a divorce court.
Without ObamaCare, I'd have added, AIDS patients that want to put a friend/partner on their insurance at work. There will probably still be some of that "screw the company" reasoning for homosexual marriages, but Obamacare makes it unclear how much of that will happen.
