Save for Retirement

One of the main things you should be thinking about in your gay relationship is retirement. This applies to any other relationship too!

The Legalization of Same-Sex Marriage in the U.S. — A Timeline

It’s become common knowledge that same-sex marriage was legalized in 2015. However, you may not be familiar with the full details of how this decision came to be. The struggle for marriage equality was a long, controversial, and even scandalous process. It lasted for many decades, and it has become a major part of U.S. history. Keep reading for a full breakdown of the legalization of same-sex marriage in the U.S. and explore the timeline of the most important laws and events. 

The 2015 Decision 

Same-sex marriage has been legal in the United States. for quite some time now after the Obergefell v. Hodges case in 2015. This civil rights case ended with a decision by the United States Supreme Court to make all same-sex marriages legal in all U.S. states. What’s more, same-sex couples gained the same rights, responsibilities, and federal benefits as opposite-sex couples. 

Essentially, the Supreme Court

10 Ways Modern Gay Relationships Differ From Straight Ones

We all like to preach that love is love and that all relationships should be the same. But that’s not exactly the case, is it? Alright, alright, don’t get your panties in a bunch! We didn’t mean it like that! All relationships are equally worthy (or should be) in the eyes of the law, and love really is love. The Supreme Court says so, and we wholeheartedly agree! 

But the fact remains that the dynamic of same-sex relationships is quite different than the one the majority of straight couples have.

Some of the differences are easy to explain. When no societal stereotypes are pressuring either of the partners, the way the couple goes about their daily life changes. Some traditionalists (and bigots) can’t seem to grasp this concept. 

Stereotypes, gender-specific (and oppressive) roles, and other nonsense that straight couples have to deal with aren’t exactly the main issue in same-sex

Why We’re Having More Same-Sex Relationships Than Ever

Data collected from 28,000 adults between 1989 and 2014 found that more and more Americans answered “yes” to this question. In fact, in the early 2000s, twice as many U.S. adults reported having had at least one same-sex partner in their lifetime as compared to the early 1990s. (The study, which I co-authored with Ryne Sherman and Brooke Wells, was published today in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior.) The percentage of men who had had sex with at least one man rose from 4.5% to 8.2%, and the percentage of women who had sex with at least one woman went from 3.6% to 8.7%.

Almost all of this increase is due to more people having sexual partners of both genders—bisexual behavior. People generally felt freer to have sex with both men and women if they chose. Acceptance of same-sex sexuality also shot up, with 49% saying it …
