Not All Gay Marriages Are Gay


We already know that there are still gay people entering opposite sex marriages, at least sometimes even after identifying as gay (for example, here).

A 2008 study found that the inverse is also true: not all gay marriages are gay.

In fact about one in 10 women who entered a same-sex domestic partnership in California self-identified as bisexual or heterosexual (as did 8% of women in Vermont civil unions and 5% of women in Massachussetts same-sex marriages).
