  • I think all kids are better off in a STABLE home with two parents. Pity they won't get moving on gay marriage so they can fix all the gay adoption laws. So many kids stuck in foster care that would thrive with 2 dads or 2 moms.

  • That's being judgmental. I can't go there. I can say I didn't have children out of wedlock.

  • No. I don't see why it matters if they are or not. If the two in a relationship are committed to each other and the family, I don't see the difference getting the piece of paper from the courthouse will make.

  • I think the facts support a two parent household as ideal. I think they should, but I can also understand why some aren't. It's not my place to judge anyone. And I agree with NotPanicking, they need to allow gay couples adoption and marriage rights. Two parents, not necessarily a man and a woman.

    Living together and not by law is easier to throw away than married by law. Hence the word "stable". By definition, living together is inherently less stable. Bottom line, people shouldn't be having kids before deciding they are committed. Living together is playing house and having an escape hatch.

  • I agree with gay marriage all the way. I agree anyone who wants to should be able to!!!!Oh and anyone who does not want to should not be judged!
