Chapter XIV - HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGECan there ever be a lasting relationship -- a 'marital' type of relationship -- between homosexuals? The answer is yes.
However, it's a qualified yes. In interviews with several hundred deviates, both male and female, the homosexual 'marriage' seemed commonplace. Still, when one attempted to ascertain the longevity of such unsanctioned arrangements, they varied in duration from a few weeks to a few months. Only a small minority, say one percent, extended beyond that length of time.
