Since 2015, U.S has legalized same-sex marriage. Now gay marriage is more acceptable than it was a few years back. Previously, people didn’t talk much about their sexual orientation.
But slowly they started talking about it and we now see lots of gay couples getting married. Here are some interesting facts you should know about homosexuality.
1. There has been a rapid growth of same-sex marriage over the past decade. In fact, the percentage has almost doubled now. More people now support gay marriage than they did 10 years ago.
2. Acceptance of same-sex marriage has helped to reduce the cases of suicide. Many teenagers are bullied at school because of their sexual orientation. This often led to depression and eventually suicide. The legalization of gay marriage has lowered this rate. Now homosexuality is accepted in society.
3. More children are now being adopted. In the past, the adoption agencies were reluctant to give children to the gay couples. As gay marriage is legalized now, the adoption agencies have to give equal right to the homosexual couples. So, now more foster children will get loving parents.
4. The divorce rate in the U.S. has decreased due to the legalization of same-sex marriage. In a study, it was found that more than 50% married couples get divorced in the U. S and one of the main reasons for this is infertility or incompatibility. So, now due to acceptance of homosexuality, the rate of divorce has decreased.
Being homosexual is no more a taboo. It is acceptable in society and people now talk about their sexual orientation without any hesitation. It’s their right and they should have equal opportunities like any other person.
