Gay Marriage - Gay Divorce. How To Reduce The Risk You'll Divorce

Updated: Nov 13, 2019

Obviously when you marry you never think you might be sitting in a divorce attorney's office dividing your assets. Who would want to think such things?

But it can happen. So now that gay couples can marry in some states, how can gay couples take on the responsibility of trying to stay together?

I found a few good gay pre-marital suggestions from hunting around through the research.

  1. Ideally, get married after about 2 years of courtship. The ideal courtship length seems to be about 2 years and 4 months, to be exact.

  2. Marry after age 25.

  3. Talk about the big issues before marrying. How many kids does he want? How does she handle money? Are you sexually compatible? Couples tend to have one of these 6 common problems to deal with throughout their marriage:

    • Money

    • Sex

    • Parenting

    • Getting along with In-Laws

    • Tidiness/Chores

    • Use of Personal Free Time

  4. Do stuff together, but also enjoy spending time at home together. One of the important things we look at when evaluating a couple's relationship is whether, if given the option, they like spending time at home together, or if they'd rather be on the go. A preference of being on the go can be an indication that they're avoiding being trapped together at home.

For those of you who are getting married, we wish you a long-lasting, happy marriage. Congratulations!
