    That didn't even become a standard family model until the post-WWII era, which wasn't very long ago.

    Traditional... Nuclear... they are the same thing.
    A Nuclear Family has been the Traditional Family for thousands of years.

    Look up marriage in Ancient Greece or Rome.
    read up on the Native Americans and other cultures.

    The Traditional Family, for thousands of years, consists primarily of a man and woman... husband and wife.
    These two, generally, have children.

    There are cousins and aunts and uncles too... Extended Family.

    They use different terms, in many cases, but they are what they are.

    Thousands of years? Try decades. Thousands of years ago, young couples were expected to move into either the husband's parents' house, or the wife's parents', depending on culture. Children were raised not by their parents, but by their extended family.

    The "nuclear family" is a product of the Industrial Revolution, in which young men and women moved into cities, away from their relatives, to find work.

    How about we narrow it down. Do you approve of the gay couple in the story legally adopting the two boys they are fostering?

The only message on this thread that appears "angry and hateful" is your response to my message. It was impossible for you to make a disagreeing message without an intense personal attack against me for pointing out the obvious flaws in the story you had posted. While "angry" is arguable, there was nothing hateful, prejudiced or paranoid about my message.
    At least you agree with me on 'angry.'

    The Nuclear family is the remaining core of what was once a usually extensive kinship grouping. Most of that however has been worn down until all that is left is the Nuclear family. In that sense it has long been around, it was just a lot better supported in centuries past and part of a complex kinship grouping.

    I don't know how long the children have been with them. If it is long enough to establish bonding and IF THE STORY IS TRUE, yes - because the decision is about those 2 children and a situation already existing.

    That link I just posted in response to your concerns states in the very first sentence that the boys have been with the gay couple since 2004. Helps if you read the material.

    The information is there. I'm not sure which studies but you have to read them. The incidence of children committing suicide is no different between the two. If I recall correctly, all studies except one indicate that there is no increased bullying with children of gay parents. Once study indicated that there was a slight increase for male children.
