The verdict has been in for a long time. The Regnerus study only confirmed it. Nature established the ideal ions ago.<quoted text>
Many people have, and the verdict is in.
Marriage is a good thing. for those who value it. It's helpful to couples, good for their children, and provides support to the elderly. All good things for society.
And it does all these lovely things for gay couples in the SAME way it does them for straight couples.
And, yes, that IS a reason the smile.
A father, mother and their biological children. Default situations dramatically increase the negatives for everyone.
And gay couples with children rank last. After single parents.
Hardly a reason to smile...
