While everyone is talking about gay marriage, there is something that we are missing here, gay divorce.
While liberal LGBT advocates say that gay marriage will not effect heterosexuals, gay divorce definitely will.
Currently, the divorce rate for heterosexuals is at 25%. Every 20 years, heterosexual divorce costs taxpayers $2.2 trillion dollars, according to Fox News. Around 80% of heterosexuals are married, which is 245,293,600 people.
Research shows that 95% of LGBT individuals will have a new partner within 20 years. Just 3% of America’s population identify as being gay, lesbian, or bisexual. That would be a total of around 9,483,000 people. Let’s just say that 100% of gay people got married. By taking the cost of a heterosexual divorce, along with a 95% divorce rate, it would cost tax payers $1.1 billion every 20 years.
The notion that the legalization of gay marriage is not going to effect us, is pure unrealistic hogwash.
