More than a quarter of gay couples consider themselves married, census data show

The Advocate reports:

Twenty-seven percent of the estimated 564,743 gay couples in the United States reported themselves as married in 2008, according to the first U.S. Census figures on same-sex marriage provided to the Associated Press.

While the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that approximately 100,000 legal same-sex marriages, civil unions, and domestic partnerships were entered last year, nearly 150,000 same-sex couples reported being in a spousal relationship.
