Sprigg, MDiv, Senior Fellow for Policy Studies at the Family Research Council, said that if gay marriage were legalized, "[t]axpayers, consumers, and businesses would be forced to subsidize homosexual relationships... Massachusetts, which became the first US state to legalize gay marriage in 2004, had the lowest divorce rate in the country in 2008. Accordingly, how children respond to their LGBT parent(s) coming out has little to do with their sexual orientation or gender identification of choice, but rather with how either parent responds to acts of coming out; i.e. whether there is dissolution of parental partnerships or rather if parents maintain a healthy, open, and communicative relationship after coming out or during transition in the case of trans parents. [17] [18] [19] Many lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people are parents.

In social and psychological development, the children were comparable to children raised in heterosexual families. It is not uncommon that one parent takes on more of the care for the children, which can often lead to frustration and resentment towards the un-participating parent by both their partner and the children involved.

The critically acclaimed film starring Felicity Huffman as a transgender woman who discovers she is the father of a grown son and embarks on a cross-country road trip. The rise in same-sex parenting, whether through foster care, surrogacy or adoption means that educators need to address how the school will handle explaining relationship status and family makeup, in a culture where societal norms are still being defined.

Families were recruited through the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children, a geographic population study of 14,000 mothers and their children.
