Focus on the Family’s CitizenLink reports that, according to a new study, married households are more environmentally friendly:

By examining data from 12 countries, Jiangua “Jack” Liu, senior author of the study, and his associate Eunice Yu, found that married households are more efficient with water, energy and land use. On the other hand, divorced couples require an extra 38 million rooms and spend 46 percent more per capita on electricity and 56 percent more on water than married couples.

Although the CitizenLink article focused primarily on the environmental impact of divorced couples, the same data would seem to apply to unmarried singles as well. As such, Liu and Yu’s study appears to support another conclusion that Focus on the Family is less likely to endorse:

Gay marriage is good for the environment.
