It would be interesting to see how that correlates to other factors, such as lifelong fidelity. Do half of the mom-dad marriages end during the offsprings’ childhood due to divorce or separation? And how does that compare to same-sex couples? I’d think marital stability would be as important a factor as marital structure.

In fact, the vast majority of "gay father" or "lesbian mother" respondents were the children of a straight marriage that ended when the mother or father had a homosexual fling and then abandoned the family. This calls into question what effect this study is actually measuring.
It's not news that kids from broken homes don't fare well.
