The number of same-sex couple households in the U.S. has surpassed 1 million for the first time, according to recently released government data. 

There were more than 1.2 million same-sex couple households across the country in 2021, up from 540,000 in 2008, an increase of over 120%, the data, taken from the Census Bureau's annual American Community Survey, showed.

About 710,000 (59.2%) of the same-sex couple households were married, and about 500,000 (41.7%) were unmarried.
