About half of all male homosexual couples have sex outside of the relationship with the approval of the partner, according to a new study. The research from San Francisco State University has not been released yet but was previewed in a New York Times story. The research followed 556 male couples over three years and found that half had arrangements agreeing that the other partner could have sex with other men. Sometimes that included rules: "advance approval of partners" and "no sex with strangers."
"None of this is news in the gay community, but few will speak publicly about it," author Scott James wrote in The Times.
Glenn T. Stanton, director of Focus on the Family, states, "The study demonstrates clearly what we've been arguing: That gays bring a different definition to marriage. And it's not just a different definition that male and female become optional, but that monogamy becomes optional as well. They are coming into marriage with a wholly different view of marriage than anybody has - left, right, conservative, liberal - They come in with that understanding of openness. These are people who come into marriage with a wholly different and really radical definition of what marriage is about."
