Gay Marriage Is Harmful To Traditional Marriage? That's Not What The Numbers Say.....

Over the past decade or so, divorce has gradually become more uncommon in the United States. Since 2003, however, the decline in divorce rates has been largely confined to states which have not passed a state constitutional ban on gay marriage.
These Marriage Equality states saw their divorce rates decrease by an average of 8 percent between 2003 and 2008.
The Same-Sex Marriage ban States saw their divorce rates rise by about 1 percent over the same period.
So, what's all this about gay marriage being harmful to traditional marriage?
