States with gay marriage have lower divorce rates

Now that the federal government is okay with same-sex marriage, it’s up to states to decide whether to legalize it.

One of the arguments against gay marriage is it destroys the institution of marriage. So the NBC station in Chicago wanted to know if divorce rates were higher in states that allowed same-sex marriage.

Turns out, they’re not. States where same-sex marriage is legal have a 20% lower divorce rate.
