Does Gay Marriage Prevent Straight Divorce?

Two very intriguing statistics have recently emerged -

Massachusetts, the only state that allows gay marriage, has the lowest divorce rate in the country.

Vermont, the only state with gay civil unions, has the second lowest.

So...this is pretty strong evidence that gay marriage prevents straight divorce!

(Thanks to gay 365 for the stats.)

Of course, one can say just about anything with stats, as gay bashers and anti-marriage foes often do. But certainly this is better evidence than anything they've presented - countrary to being a danger for marriage, it looks like gay marriage is the best thing that could ever happen to heterosexual marriage. Imagine that!
