What does it mean to be raised by a pair of mated parents??

I found this article on the Onion (,20263/) and it talks about the progress that David Sullivan has made. He was raised by a pair of mated parents.

"but the decades he spent being reared by parents has made joining civilization a desperately difficult task"

I don't know what exactly all of that means. Obviously he was sheltered but can someone really dumb it down for me lol

  • The Onion is not a real news site.

  • I think it is referring to a gay couple, or same sex parents.

  • sidesplittinglaughter It's a spoof. I think the divorce rate in the US is like 60% or something high like that. "Mated Parents" in this case is a married man and woman who DON'T divorce. It very much reminds me of a kid I knew years ago. He was homeschooled and had almost NO social skills. He was a lot like this "David Sullivan". The kid I knew, though, had a heart of gold and just needed someone to help him through all the BS of the mid-late teenage years and explain the inuendos of all varieties.
