If you thought that heterosexual couples (or even lesbian pairs) have a longer relationship shelf life than gay men, think again because a new study from The Williams Institute at UCLA has some evidence to prove otherwise.
The study followed 500 Vermont couples, including gay, lesbian, and heterosexual relationships, over the course of 12 years from 2002 to 2014, and learned that homosexual men are the least likely to break up among the group. Interestingly enough, lesbian couples were twice as likely to call it quits and one-and-a-half as likely as heterosexual pairs. When it came to looking at all couple types, each year of a relationship length reduced the odds of breaking up by 9%.
