A new survey has found that same-sex married couples are less likely to divorce than their straight counterparts.

The research found that the average divorce rate for same-sex couples in the US is just 1.1 percent annually.

A new survey conducted by The Williams Institute has found that same-sex married couples are far less likely to divorce than straight married couples.

The research found that the average divorce rate for same-sex couples in the US is just 1.1 percent annually compared with a 2 percent divorce rate for straight married couples.

Study co-author Christy Mallory said the divorce rate difference didn’t come as a big surprise…

“Many of these couples have been waiting years to get married… On average, they are more likely to have relationships tested by time before marrying.”

The survey also discovered that lesbian couples are far more likely to get married than gay men, with 62 percent of gay marriages being between two women.
