Gay marriage will destabilise family life, sociologist predicts

In stark contrast to the survey conducted proving how gay parents are just as good as heterosexual couples, a leading sociologist has warned that gay marriage will "further destabilise marriage and family life in Britain".

Dr Patricia Morgan has told the House of Parliament that same-sex marriage reinforced the idea that marriage is irrelevant to parenthood in a 22 page paper handed to the Committee Stage of the Marriage (same sex couples) Bill.

“Same sex marriage is both an effect and a cause of the evisceration of marriage - especially the separation between this and parenthood," she said. “Elsewhere, same sex marriage is an instigator for the casualisation of heterosexual unions and separation of marriage and parenthood.”

Dr Morgan also warned there would be widespread vicitmisation of individuals and institutions who dared to resist the definition of marriage.



The report contained a detailed analysis of marriage trends in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Spain, Belgium, Canada and some U.S. states were gay marriage has been legalised.

“From what we know about demographic trends, it is preposterous to argue that people suddenly somehow embrace marriage and slow or reverse its decline because homosexuals can have it,” Dr Morgan said.

“We can be certain that same sex marriage will do no such thing as encourage stable marriage whether for heterosexuals and/or homosexuals. Marriage in Scandinavia, Spain, Netherlands and elsewhere is in deep decline."
