Same sex marriage rates grow in the USA


The latest records show there are an estimated 981,000 adults who are in gay or lesbian marriages – up from 734,000 a year ago. That translates into nearly half a million same-sex marriages — an increase of 123,000 since June 2015.

The results also mean nearly one in 10 LGBT adults are married to a member of the same sex – up from 8% last year. This includes 10.5% of gay men and 8.8% of lesbians, according to Gallup. And nearly half of all LGBT couples who live together are married today – up from 38% a year ago. The increase has been slightly greater in states that did not have same-sex marriage until the Supreme Court ruled, with much of the increase took place in the first few months after the high court’s ruling last year.
