We tested competing hypotheses about the stability of same-sex versus different-sex cohabiting couples that were guided by incomplete institutionalization, minority stress, relationship investments, and couple homogamy perspectives predicting that same-sex couples would be less stable as well as economic resources predicting that same-sex couples would be more stable.

Traditional gender roles assume that women are relational and men are instrumental.
