"Gay couples aren't monogamous"? People saying this have no idea what they are talking about.
First, some straight info on cheating/non-monogamy.
So you think gay men are promiscuous? | Patrick Strudwick | Comment is free | theguardian.comA nationally representative survey of 884 men put the number at only 23 percent. A much bigger but unrepresentative MSNBC survey found that nearly half of adults cheat—exactly the same percentage as the San Francisco study found with gay men.

Heck my numbers were even way too high.There is only a one percentage point difference between heterosexuals and homosexuals in their promiscuity: 98% of gay people have had 20 or fewer sexual partners; 99% of straight people have had the same number. Tellingly, OkCupid found that it is just 2% of gay people that are having 23% of the total reported gay sex.

The majority of past data came from horribly flawed studies, studies done on AIDS/HIV positive people (hello, they got an STI, of course they aren't likely to be very monogamous), or in bars (again, not exactly a place for discouraging promiscuity, for straights or gays). I bet if we did the same types of surveys in the same way of straight people, we would get pretty similar results to those found in those old studies of gay men.
