Same-Sex Marriage and Children is the first book to bring together historical, social science, and legal considerations to comprehensively respond to the objections to same-sex marriage that are based on the need to promote so-called "responsible procreation" and child welfare. Carlos A. Ball places the current marriage debates within a broader historical context by exploring how the procreative and child welfare claims used to try to deny same-sex couples the opportunity to marry are similar to earlier arguments used to defend interracial marriage bans, laws prohibiting disabled individuals from marrying, and the differential treatment of children born out of wedlock. Ball also draws a link between welfare reform and same-sex marriage bans by explaining how conservative proponents have defended both based on the need for the government to promote responsible procreation among heterosexuals. In addition, Ball examines the social science studies relied on by opponents of same-sex marriage and explains in a highly engaging and accessible way why they do not support the contention that biological status and parental gender matter when it comes to parenting. He also explores the relevance of the social science studies on the children of lesbians and gay men to the question of whether same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry. In doing so, the book looks closely at the gay marriage cases that reached the Supreme Court and explains why the constitutionality of same-sex marriage bans could not be defended on the basis that maintaining marriage as an exclusively heterosexual institution promoted the best interests of children. Same-Sex Marriage and Children will help lawyers, law professors, judges, legislators, social and political scientists, historians, and child welfare officials-as well as general readers interested in matters related to marriage and families-understand the empirical and legal issues behind the intersection of same-sex marriage and children's welfare.

"Strasser sets forth many strong legal and moral arguments for opposing the organized right-wing anti-gay anti-marriage campaign now raging state by state, a campaign designed to make this country a house divided in which targeted couples do not know whether they are married or not as they cross state borders. He blasts the election-year federal anti-marriage law that created a caste-system of marriage in America just to discriminate against lesbian and gay soon-to-be-weds. Any American uncomfortable with the idea of second-class citizens and second- class marriages will welcome the legal ammunition in this book."--Evan Wolfson, Director of the Marriage Project of the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund and co-counsel on Baehr v. Miike, the Hawaii marriage case "Strasser . . . analyzes the arguments against same-sex marriage one by one and concludes that none achieves legal credibility. He reviews the bars on marriage based on definition, procreation, custody, and protection of children and the debates centered on equal protection. Looking at the recently passed Defense of Marriage Act, he concludes that it may be unconstitutional. . . . This [book] is of great current relevance."--Library Journal In a new preface, Mark Strasser discusses recent developments in the legal battle over same-sex marriages in Hawaii. He anticipates the likely state- and nation-wide impact of the Hawaii Supreme Court's decision.

With the debate over same-sex marriage boiling over into court action, civil demonstration and even legislative debates and proposals, you may think you've heard all of the arguments pro and con on this divisive issue. But what you probably haven't heard are concrete, rational reasons why same-sex marriage is or is not a good idea for individuals and communities. Dr. Bill Maier and Glenn T. Stanton, both experts in the fields of psychology and sociology, offer such reasons. Arguing against same-sex marriage and parenting in Marriage on Trial, they draw on current social science research to offer clear and cogent answers to the questions at the center of the debate, including Is marriage a public or private matter? Can marriage be redefined, legally and socially? How will allowing marriage between homosexuals affect families and communities? How does same-sex parenting affect children? Helping you sift through the emotion, the rhetoric and the myths, Stanton and Maier provide in this book a compelling counter-argument to those who advocate homosexual marriage and a thought-provoking assessment of the psychological and sociological harm that homosexual marriage (if legalized and legitimized) will do to communities and children.

The United States Constitution has already been interpreted to provide a variety of family-related protections which, if applied consistently, also protect same-sex couples and their children. Only by radically reformulating and severely undermining existing protections can courts and commentators justify the claim that the Federal Constitution does not offer a wealth of family protections, including the right to marry a same-sex partner. Discussing the constitutional implications of civil unions with a special focus on how they might be treated in the interstate context, Strasser explains how the courts and commentators have reworked and significantly weakened a variety of constitutional protections in their attempts to establish that same-sex couples are not afforded constitutional protections. He further suggests that the constitutional protections for religion support rather than undermine the constitutional protection of same-sex unions.

Staver argues that the allowing of same-sex marriages in San Francisco speaks to the homosexual agenda's cultural assault and the church's timidity in confronting it.
