Here are 7 reasons gay couples should think twice about attempting to imitate the traditional marriage model <a href="http://mensjewlery.blogshells.com/2013/0...g_for_a_career_">blogshells</a>.</p>
<p>1) Money: The concept of marriage was originally mostly about property rights, not love. Now, with over half of all marriages ending in divorce, and many of those couples fighting it out in court over money, have things really changed very much? You donít know how your partner will react in 10 or 20 years if they donít feel their needs are being met. Why complicate things by combining all your finances?</p>
<p>2) Monogamy: Before Stephen became a matchmaker, he was quite idealistic about romantic relationships. By the time he sold the company in 1997, he had a much more thorough understanding of human nature and love relationships after interviewing people about their love lives, and observing 1000s of relationships <a href="http://www.gzpollyshoes.com">gzpollyshoes</a>. One of the things he learned is that a sizable percentage (larger than you think) of people who assume they are the long-term, strictly monogamous type really are not. Some donít know themselves well enough, some conform to keep the peace or get what they want, and some pretend they want strict monogamy for the rest of their lives for other reasons.</p>
<p>For a short period of time they can easily remain faithful, but eventually they will be miserable. Traditional marriage doesnít take this into consideration. In addition, gay men and men in general tend to be comfortable separating sex and love, allowing them physical contact without a deep emotional connection, and they have an innate drive for multiple partners. Therefore, strict long-term monogamy may not be the best path for all gay couples <a href="http://www.chinagemfactory.com/mn077-rar...6mm-p-4511.html">jewelry making beads</a>. Considering the high rate of cheating among heterosexual couples, apparently itís not the best idea for them either! Perhaps all couples would instead be better off focusing on complete honesty and safe-sex 100% of the time.</p>
<p>3) Religion: If you were hoping we would champion the religious themes often used against gay marriage, sorry, weíre not going to do that. Since religion originally had nothing to do with marriage, that argument is about as phony as an outspoken, anti-gay yet closeted preacher.</p>
<p>Our findings tell us that anti-gay sentiment will incur negative karma and result in future lives where the culprit will experience a similar circumstance, but as the victim, even for those who claim to be anti-gay in the name of religion.</p>
<p>4) One size does not fit all: The traditional marriage model encourages couples to conform to certain rules and customs which may not be compatible with one or both partners, gay or straight <a href="http://www.teamuniformssoccer.com">Soccer Customized Jerseys</a>. You donít need a certificate from the government to prove your love for each other or to anyone else.</p>
<p>5) Kids: Marriage used to be perceived as necessary before having children. Is it really? In reality, parents trying to fit into the traditio
