Dutch Boys 12 Years On

In the weekend Financial Times, Simon Kuper writes about what same-sex marriage has meant for his native Netherlands. Among his conclusions:

  • "(I)t doesn't change much."
  • Following legalization in 2001, political squabbles turned to other matters.
  • Despite crazy claims otherwise, it does not affect straight marriages.
  • SSM does "slap the churches in the face," in the sense they have the scramble to show their relevance.
  • Stereotypical, traditional gay scenes are disappearing as more homosexuals integrate in the larger community.
