Gay marriages have emerged as record breaking examples for heterosexuals. As claimed by researchers and studies, same sex relationships have achieved a lot of success as compared to straight ones. Ask any couple (a husband and wife) and they’ll confess one thing about marriage – ‘things aren’t that straight’. It is tough to maintain the relationship. Research and studies under social science has come up with a conclusion that a major part of the challenges in marriage stems from preference of couples to marry the opposite gender. Marriage between a man and woman makes the complete union harder.
As the cliched phrase goes – ‘Men are from Mars and women are from Venus’.
It is absolutely true and proves that to a huge extent, men and women are elementally different in many ways. These differences tend to develop major and tough to handle challenges in straight marriages. On the other hand, homogeneous couples don’t face these hurdles. Hence, studies and research conducted recently claims that same-sex marriages are superior and more successful than gay marriages.
Apart from technical reasons, a lot of credit to success behind gay marriages goes to the couples in it. People in these relationships care for each other. They share responsibility, finances, emotional challenges, power, and authority and everything that may emerge as major issues in relationships. As per a research conducted in the year 2000 post legalisation of same-sex marriages in Vermont and conversation between researchers and around one thousand couples (gay and straight), it was concluded that homosexual relationships are more egalitarian as compared to heterosexual ones.
Most married women (in straight marriages) are under pressure and stress about accomplishing tasks around house and within a relationship. This situation is different in same-sex marriages. Also during couple fights, same-sex couples fight more fairly than straight couples.
