New Study: Adopting A Dog Strengthens Gay Couples’ Relationships

A new study has found two thirds of gay and bi couples who adopt dogs say their relationships are stronger as a result, reports QN.

The study by pet-sitting website looked at pet dogs and their owners’ romantic relationships. It revealed 56% of the couples with dogs spent more time together.

Participants also saw owning a dog in a relationship to be more committal than setting up a joint bank account.

Over a third of people in the study – of all sexual orientations – said they would not date anyone who was not a self-confessed “dog person.”
