Gay/Lesbian Parents Edit
A way that U.S. families have been changing is there are a lot more gay and lesbian parents of households. Most children of gay/lesbian parents were born when one of the parents were in a heterosexual relationship. These parents though are also using artifical insemination or a surrogate as ways to have children.
Many people feel that gay/lesbian parents have negative impact on their children, when in fact research proves that children of these couples are about equal to straight couples. Just like with straight couples, children are affected by the family dynamics such as ecnomoic stress, marital confict and more.
