   Yes, we have more women than men, and always have. We have 1 lesbian
couple, and many single moms. Fairly balanced in activity, because although
there are more women, they often don't have as much time due to kids.
  1st time homebuyers - 12 or more. 
  Newly married less than 5 years - one couple met in cohusing  and live
together but aren't married (so they had been together less than 5 years when
they moved in), and the lesbian couple were together 2 years when they moved
