As most of you know, the gay marriage bill passed in NY. I write a lot on ShrinkTalk about failed relationships, but those articles are skewed heavily toward heterosexual couples. I recently wrote a post on whether or not gay marriages could be more successful than traditional ones. You can read that here if you'd like: http://shrinktalk.net/?p=2125 FOCUS: Independent of your personal views on gay marriage (although feel free to share them here), do you see any differences that might suggest a higher success/failure rate when compared to heterosexual couples? Note: I don't define success and failure based solely on whether the marriage remains intact on paper; rather, success should include overall happiness and failure should include unhealthy marriages that continue to exist.
