Coming out to parents and self-esteem among gay and lesbian youths. Every page of this sweet book for young readers celebrates the adorable and lulling world of babies being loved and cared for in their different families. A former professor at the evangelical Calvin College, Regnerus wrote a cover story for Christianity Today arguing that Christians should encourage their children to marry young; he also wrote a piece for Slate arguing that the sexual revolution has produced bitter fruit for women.

Regnerus’s same-sex-parenting study was funded, at a price tag of three-quarters of a million dollars—an enormous sum in social science—by two socially conservative groups: the Witherspoon Institute and the Bradley Foundation.

Most (140) were either birth mothers or co-mothers, but 14 were single moms from the start. On June 26, 2015, the US Supreme Court ruled that the US Constitution guarantees the right for same-sex couples to marry.

When a married couple has or jointly adopts a child, both partners are automatically considered legal parents.

Summary: The fourth book in this internationally best-selling series explores lots of aspects of the body including birth, growth, ageing, senses, the brain, and genetics, but from a family standpoint rather than a straight non-fiction perspective. New Ways Ministry ran into serious trouble with the Vatican in the late 1990s. We analyze findings from studies with designs that mitigate these problems by comparing two-parent families with same or different sex coparents and single-mother and single-father families.

A single lesbian mother sought infant mental health services because she had adopted the biological child of her ex partner, before they separated, and was ambivalent about caring for her ex partner’s subsequent children.. Now that these so-called harbingers are looking to commit to more-binding relationships, we will have the “counterfactual” that Gary Gates talks about: we will be better able to tell which marital stresses and pleasures are due to gender, and which are not.
