The number of same-sex couples living in Massachusetts is on the rise.

Citing recent Census data, The Boston Globe reported Tuesday that the number of same-sex couples living in the state has increased 17 percent in the last decade.

Demographers say the rise is a result of growing acceptance of same-sex relationships, making it easier for gay couples to declare their relationships openly.
