I will measure my years as a parent up against any soft science. Thanks to the marriage equality ruling of Obergefell vs. We all, naturally, have a father and a mother. What is stopping them? Not always the case.

Marriage equality is an idea that is sweeping around the developed nations of the world today. There is a desire to build a foundation for a lifetime of togetherness. However, unlike straight married couples who can file for adultery, divorce and infidelity, gay couples were not given the same purview of the law before.
The benefits that are given by the government are equally distributed among the normal couples and the same sex couples.

Gender roles can be hard to play especially if biological and physical aspects are the issue.
A movement toward marriage equality shows these nations that there is nothing to fear about having a relationship like this. The government structure may not be supportive of the idea. With gay marriage, married homosexuals can now file for divorce and sue their partners with adultery or infidelity.
Same-sex couples wait longer to get married if at all. The issue on same-sex marriage or gay marriage has been a controversial topic for so many years now, with several countries worldwide have made it legal while others still are firm on their stand to ban it.

Not only that, but gays and lesbians are likely to provide homes for difficult-to-place children in the foster system, studies show.
And they are not comparing the gay couples to similar straight couples. I give thanks for that time. Love and nurture is what matters when raising children. Denying marriage equality to LGB people is not going to prevent them from living the lives to which they were born or from raising the children that they have.
