Many of the places that ban gay marriage are also among the places with the highest rates of gay and lesbian couples raising children. The Atlantic Cities reports:
Grand Forks, North Dakota, probably isn’t the first city that comes to mind when you think of same-sex couples. For one thing, it’s Grand Forks, North Dakota. Then of course there’s the matter of North Dakota having a state ban on same-sex marriage. But the law hasn’t discouraged these couples from starting a family; on the contrary, 65 percent of gay couples in Grand Forks are raising children. That’s according to a new infographic from the Williams Institute at UCLA. The figure shows that many of the highest percentages of same-sex couples raising children are found in states that ban gay marriage.
I wonder if the rates of straight couples raising children are similarly distributed?
