One of the better kept secrets of same-sex relationships are the number of people who have been together for a really long time. Over the years I’ve met many same-sex couples who have been in long-term relationships.
The Commitment Project is a web site that showcases same-sex relationships that have outlasted the median length of an Australian marriage, which is approximately 8.8 years.
Have a wander through the pages and enjoy the stories and photos you’ll find there. Some great examples of love, against the odds. While you’re at it, connect via the Facebook page* for the project and help pass the word on.
I hope I can one day be a part of this project. I’ve got another 6 or so years before I’m eligible. I am confident that Australian law will allow same-sex marriages by then though.
