For a different take -- the conservative National Review's article.
From the article:
"Critics protest that the NFSS is comparing the gold standard — intact married-parent homes — with families that have experienced many levels of instability. That's true. Only a tiny percentage of the adults in the NFSS study spent their entire childhoods with their gay parent and a committed partner. The rest had seen their parents' marriages dissolve (either because of sexual-orientation issues or for other reasons), or never form, and had lived in a variety of household configurations during their formative years. Regnerus does not deny this, saying, 'One notable theme among the adult children of same-sex parents . . . is household instability, and plenty of it. . . . While we know that good things tend to happen . . . when people provide households that last, parents in the [study] who had same-sex relationships were the least likely to exhibit such stability.'"
