  • Nothing I mind my own business. I dont have one next door, but we have one at the school. Some families accept them, some dont.

  • I would tell them to take it up with the neighbors.  I wouldn't care and I wouldn't care to hear some idiot commenting behind their backs about it.

  • I may not agree with their livestyle but I'd keep to myself and not get involved in the gossip. Better that than a bunch of rowdy partying drunkerds wouldn't ya say?

  • Nothing. Which is exactly what I did when I had a gay couple live across the street from me at one time. I don't care. As long as nobody is getting hurt, I don't care how other people live their lives.

  • That would be hilarious! We are the token gay couple here, doubt neighbors would complain to us. Then again we live in an area where the nearest neighbor is 5 acres away.

  • Bake them some cookies or a casserole to welcome them to the neighborhood. Who cares what the other neighbors think, not me.

  • What is the couple doing to produce complaints? Are they drug dealers, thieves, partiers, sloppy? If the only issue is their orientation, I would do NOTHING. I can not imagine this happening in 2011. My parents, nearing 80 and practicing Catholics, have  great relationships with their lesbian neighbors on one side and 30+ year gay couple to the back of their home.
