What we already knew…

Same-sex couples just as committed as straight couples
SDSU co-authored study finds equal level of commitment and relationship satisfaction

Here at Let California Ring, this study came as no surprise to us.
However it’s still nice to hear that:

“Same-sex couples are as committed and happy in their romantic relationships as heterosexual couples, according to two studies in the January issue of the journal Developmental Psychology.

The authors of the studies – researchers from San Diego State University, University of Urbana-Champaign, the University of Washington, and the University of Vermont – say their findings challenge the stereotype that same-sex relationships aren’t as healthy or secure as heterosexual pairings and are therefore not as psychologically healthy.”

That’s why everyone deserves the freedom to marry, and the honor, dignity and respect that come along with it.
