Betterment Of Health In Case Of Gay And Lesbian Civil Partnerships

Gay and lesbian civil partnerships (gay marriage) is thought to bring an increased number of health benefits. Researchers said that such marriage lead to betterment in the health of both sexes in a variety of ways. Civil partnerships for gay couples also offer numerous advantages.

The civil unions show reduced discrimination against gay and lesbian couples thereby making their relationships more stable.

Their families recognize such relationships and a social framework of recognition are created. In such cases there is less exchange of partners, less sexual risk, less drinking, less of the sorts of problems that gay men and lesbians sometimes get into.

Civil unions support same sex marriage and in the resolution of any problems that arise in their relationships.

Annie Bartlett from St George's Hospital Medical School in London says that social inclusion is very important as it stops a lot of unhealthy habits and a lot of psychological issues.

This can be seen by the increasing number of gay men and lesbians, who deliberately cause self-harm, try to commit suicide or go in to depression and suffer from other psychiatric problems. Hence these people should be given access to health care, which would improve their life.
