Events of great magnitude that had the opening of marriage as a denial of family values, it remains today as protests deflated like balloons, exploited by racketeers recovery policy, riddled with mobilities of ultracathos, and the ultra fachos ultra homophobes.

A year later, the gay and lesbian marriage has he deconstructed the French company as they predicted and still claim? Jérôme Courduriès, anthropologist and author of Homosexuality and relatives , said on France Inter by a pleasing formula (and full of common sense): "Those who speak of anthropological change are not anthropologists. Anthropologists them know that no company is immobile. Openness to marriage between persons of the same sex is an important change, but it is not likely to upset quite our kinship system. "

It was not until 2015 for complete data. The INSEE statistics on gay marriage in France in 2013were for a partial year since they started in the month of May.

It is not known exactly how many gay marriages were celebrated in the past twelve months, failing statistics from date to date. There will of course have more than 2013 where 7,000 gays and lesbians marriages formed - to same period - about 4% of all marriages.

Gay marriage in 2014 they exceed the threshold of 5% recorded from 2007 to 2012 by the homosexual PACS PACS compared to straight? Not so sure.  4% of the homo marriages result from a triple phenomenon of novelty, excitement and catching. This recovery is noticeable through the average age of husband (50 years for gay and 43 years for lesbians, against respectively 37 and 34 years for the husband and wife among heterosexuals).  4 But this proportion % might have been even higher if many couples had not delayed their wedding, burnt by protesters homophobic hysteria and fear that intolerance tarnish the happiest day of their lives.

According to a questionnaire that answered the mayors of 25 cities with at least 100,000 inhabitants, the statistics Sunday newspaper put Paris at the head of all the rankings (see table above). It was in Paris that was the most married gay couples since the entry into force of the Law (1332 pairs) and it was in Paris that the proportion of same-sex marriages is higher (15.63 %). The only city of Paris celebrated more gay marriages and lesbians that all twenty-four cities of the panel. Nice and Montpellier far behind with respectively 122 and 98 marriages.

The panel of JDD includes several interesting figures. The gender distribution fluctuates a lot, but gay marriages are often outnumber lesbians marriages. In Paris, the ratio is three gay marriages for lesbian marriage. Only a few cities have a clear dominant marriages between women, like Montpellier, Rennes and Villeurbanne. Twenty-five cities, no less than six cities (Paris, Nice, Montpellier, Nantes, Bordeaux and Rennes) exceed the symbolic threshold of 10% of homosexual marriages. The number and proportion of gay marriages are not directly correlated. For proof, 127 gay and lesbians marriages celebrated in Marseille accounting for only 4.71% of total marriages.

One year later, gay married couples can still benefit or medically assisted procreation (MAP), or management to others (GPA), or even recognition by the civil status of children born abroad of a surrogate mother. This shows how "marriage for all" does not mean "equality for all". The road is long.
