One asked, "How many permanent relationships does a homosexual have in a lifetime?" My life-partner and I have been together for 15 years. Among our close friends, the couples--male or female--have been together 25, 22, 17, 16, 12, 11, 10, 6 and 4 years. Look at heterosexual people you know and see how their record for permanency compares.
