Comparative Relationship Stability of Lesbian Mother and Heterosexual Mother Families: A Review of Evidence
There has been considerable controversy over how much was or was not known about the stability of lesbian parent relationships as well as whether such relationships were more or less stable than heterosexual parent relationships. Arguments have been made on all sides of the issues.
