Are Homosexual relationships more difficult than Heterosexual ones? WHY?

    Are Homosexual relationships more difficult than Heterosexual ones? WHY?

    Since women are very emotional, this seems to cause more stress in lesbian relationships.  Men are known to be prideful and insensitive, macho, how do these emotions play out when same sex couples attempt to cope in a healthy relationship.  Most are clashing and choose to remain in abusive and destructive partnerships. Do Heterosexual relationships fair better or worse?

    My guess is gay and lesbian relationships would have all the same problems we have with our straight relationships. (Plus some!)
    Most of us don't have to deal with whether our parents are "shocked" by our relationship. No one is "offended" if we hold hands, kiss, or hug our mates in public. We don't have to deal with relgious people telling us we're going to hell because we love our mates, We're not likely to be fired for being straight, No one is going to attack me and my wife for being straight...etc

    I really don't think that one type of relationship, (male/female, Gay, Straight) makes any difference. There is no fair labeling anybody as feminine or masculine, macho or sensitive because everybody is different. Like finger prints, every living soul on this planet is different from the next, not just in looks, or size, or sexual preference, but also by way of personality. Having said that, No one type is better nor worse than any other for the sake of the always overlooked fact that we are all human beings living on the same planet, breathing the same oxygen, drinking the same water, made of the same molecules, etc. My point is this, we are all different, but we are also the same, so there is actually no reason to believe in or contemplate that anyone is better or worse off in any way than another living person. After all, we are ALL human beings

    Ok Eric Prado. but don't you think MEN and WOMEN are two totally different species.  They are not the same. Women have their needs and men have theirs. Often times these relationships crash because they can never meet on common ground. By my experiences it seems to be the main reason these couples call it quits or end up hurting each other. I don't know about men being the same as women.  They are too unique beings not sure if they mesh, for intimacy at least. Thanks for your thought. 1

    I think all relationships struggle with the same intimacy ups and downs. It comes with being human and unique. We all have needs and our own personal battles inside. We all have baggage from past hurts and we all carry those into our relationships whether they are friends or mates. I do believe that gay couples face bigger struggles from society that straigh couples do not, however in the individual relationship, I do not believe there is much difference. I think gay couples, mixed race couples often face unfair social pressure, that can strain the relationship or make it stronger. It depends on how they face it and handle it. Outside pressure removed though, I think all relationships have the ability to succeed or fail based upon the love, personality, commitment, and respect the couple has for each other.

    It is in my best understanding that in a homosexual relationship, there is one that might be a little more "macho" and one that might be a little more "feminine." So, this helps to balance things out. This, as well as, there is a lot more support for those in a homosexual relationship these days than there was 10 or even 5 years ago.

    I hope this helps (seeing that I am heterosexual).
