gay marriage/strait marriage

A little somethingfor anybody that thinks that gay marriage would somehow make stable strait marriage harder:
Now consider the charts: America's calamitous increase in out-of-wedlock childbirth starts in the 1960 and then decelerates to a much lower trend (stability, in the case of blacks) right around the time gay unions get cultural traction. And, after years of decline, the percentage of children living with two married parents stabilizes around the time gay-marriage catches on.

Post hoc ergo propter hoc? As the article you link says, the most likely explanation for the figures is coincidence, and that they mean nothing at all. I'd have expected the legalization of abortion to have affected the figures, but it doesn't appear to.

Anyway, we all know the true reason for the UK's high teenage pregnancy rate: Bacardi Breezers.
