One of the parents added: Actually, we have been having conversations about where to live. Booker and Dodd discussed some of the changes in family dynamics that take place when same-sex couples have children. One identified as Jewish while the other parent identified as Catholic. In the case of same-sex parent families, families rapidly become more prevalent with the passing of legislation allowing same-sex couples to marry. There is not any literature that discusses how same-sex parents talk about the media with their children or discusses how they talk about marriage with their children. Those who were interested contacted me to indicate their participation. One of the challenges that same-sex couples face is being denied the right to apply for a marriage license.

Specifically, participants in my study indicated that there were not nearly as many same-sex couples with children as heterosexual couples and, thus, at times they feel isolated and cannot work out these feelings with others in similar situations.

Recruitment Strategies: Successes and Limitations The interviews were administered to seven same-sex parent couples that resided in the Southeastern Michigan area. Future research could also study both single and couple LGBTQ parents to see how parenting strategies and behaviors may differ or similar to single and coupled heterosexual parents. The recruitment goal was twenty couples; however, I faced difficulty in securing interviews.
