Few Homosexuals Getting 'Married' in Iowa

Despite all the hype that a significant portion of the population is homosexual, in the first year of legal same-sex "marriage" in Iowa only 4% of marriage licenses of Iowans were same-sex -- a tiny number considering the claims that so many homosexuals have been waiting for this "right" for decades.

UPDATE 6/7/10: Liberals count on Iowans' apathy and distractions from defending marriage

-- From "Iowa's 2,000 gay marriages mostly from nonresidents" by Tony Leys, Des Moines Register 5/19/10

Out-of-staters made up 60 percent of same-sex couples married in Iowa since the state began allowing such unions in April 2009, officials reported Tuesday.

The new report from the Iowa Department of Public Health says 2,020 same-sex marriages were recorded in Iowa from April 27, 2009, through March 31. Only 815 of the couples were from Iowa. The newly married included 199 gay couples from Illinois, 158 from Missouri and 111 from Nebraska.

Overall, 19,904 couples were married in Iowa during the time period. Of those, 2,020 were listed as "same gender" couples, 16,869 were listed as "opposite gender" and 1,015 were listed as "not stated."

Among gay couples getting married here, 728 were two men, and 1,292 were two women.
