Divorce Rises In States With Same-Sex Marriage Ban

Stats guru Nate Silver has crunched the numbers and reports that states with bans on same-sex marriage have a higher rate of divorce. In Massachusetts, the divorce rate has plunged over 20% in the five years since same-sex marriage became legal there. States with a constitutional ban have seen an overall increase in divorce.

It would be fantastic to get Nate Silver into the witness chair at Perry vs. Schwarzenegger, wouldn't it?
