APA Studies Say Equal Level of Commitment and Relationship Satisfaction Among Same-sex and Heterosexual Couples

I'm still reading the PDF's (at the bottom of this post) but wanted to post this quickly:

From the APA press release posted on NewsWise:

Same-sex couples are just as committed in their romantic relationships as heterosexual couples, say researchers who have studied the quality of adult relationships and healthy development. Their finding disputes the stereotype that couples in same-sex relationships are not as committed as their heterosexual counterparts and are therefore not as psychologically healthy.


These results are from two studies featured in the January issue of Developmental Psychology, published by the American Psychological Association. This issue includes a special section that examines sexual orientation across the lifespan.
