Marriage matters to same-sex parents

Results of a survey conducted on GayIVF.com, yielded an overwhelming 72% “yes” in response to the question: Does marriage make a difference for same-sex couples raising children?. “Marriage absolutely makes a difference. It is public and civic validation of the central relationship in the home,” wrote one respondent. Those who aren’t already parents were asked by what means they planned to have children. Out of the 67% of survey respondents who do not already have children, 98% stated that they do plan to have children in the future, and an overwhelming 97% stated that they plan to build their families using some form of assisted reproduction. Reproductive Science Center of New England operates GayIVF.com exclusively focused on assisted reproductive options for gay and lesbian couples.
