    Well done all you loving French people. Be happy. Well done France for human right promotion in difficult circumstances.

    It’s interesting to see stats reflecting the demographics and how SSM has impacted on French society. But “DUH!” To try and draw a correlation between the average age of heterosexual vs SSM couples? Of course the average age of SSM partners is going to be higher, they only had the last few months to marry after 10,20,30,40,50+ years of living as partners.. but did they bother to point out more older couples raced to the alter than perhaps younger? Do the same average after 5+ years or of equal marriage, long after the more mature couples who waited to marry “have” and the spread in “average age” will barely be noticeable. But by then some brilliant statistician will probably proclaim “people entering into SSM are doing so at an earlier age!”

    I’d love to be the one to tell them “no! that’s what happens on a level playing field after years of equality”
