The potential effects of same-sex marriage

Folks on the right love to paint a picture of gloom and doom if same-sex marriage were to become legal throughout the country. Never mind that in places where same-sex marriage is the law of the land, it is just not a big deal. My marriage (to a woman) of seventeen years has not been undermined in the slightest, though we live in a haven of so-called “gay marriage”. One could even get snarky and point out that the divorce rate is lower here in Massachusetts than it is down south in much of the Bible belt.

Finally, I’ve found a nice graph to show what is likely to takes place when marriage equality happens. This is what you can expect if you live in a place which does not yet allow same-sex marriage, should the laws be changed. You can study this and decide if you must panic.
