Same sex marriage is a difficult issue to tackle once you bring in the idea of raising children. It is safer to go by conventional methods of different sex marriages so that future generations are raised well.
The major ones are that not allowing same sex people to get married prevents them from getting legal benefits like hospital visitation, health insurance, family leave and more.
Furthermore, same sex marriages are a violation to religious beliefs and old traditional values that support procreation. Religions like Catholicism promote the creation of offspring freely, but same sex marriages cannot do that. Additionally, it is generally considered a sin by Abrahamic religions to be married to the same sex because of their inability to procreate. Cultural values would be lost as people become too liberal, and the nucleus family image would be a subject in textbooks, but not in practice. This will carry on to the next generation and so fourth until traditional values are forgotten.
However, the genetic bond, particularly for women, seems to be veryimportant psychologically. While thinking about the ideas for this paper,I spoke with two women who seemed to me to have inconsistent views aboutone's (natural or moral) rights concerning their genetic offspring. Thesewomen saw no reason that an unmarried father (or father-to-be) shouldhave any say about whether the fetus is aborted or not, how the pregnantwoman should take care of her own health and well-being, and whether thebaby should be offered for adoption or not. Yet they thought a woman shouldbe able to decide that an embryo she does not want to carry (which couldfeasibly be transplanted into the womb of a woman who wants to rear it)could be terminated instead of transplanted. These women seemed to thinkthat there is some more important relationship, and responsibility andrights, between a mother and child than between a father and child -- evenif the genetic mother is not the one who will carry the embryo in her bodyuntil it is born. Unlike me, they think the physical aspects of pregnancyare not what sometimes creates an earlier emotional attachment not opento fathers, but that something does at a female genetic level or very earlygestation time for a woman. One of these women, an attorney, even saw noreason why a man should have any determination about abortion even if hewere forced, say at gunpoint, to have intercourse with some woman who wantedto have a child. It seems to me this kind of distinction between a geneticmother's rights and a genetic father's rights is unwarranted in a casewhere the genetic mother does not have to be, or is not, the gestationmother.

In regard to who should have ultimate authority over the child's upbringing,it seems to me either 1) the adoptive parents could be given that legalright easily enough, or at least given the same kinds of legal rights withregard to their children as they do over grandparents, teachers, and schoolprograms with which they disagree; 2) adoptive parents might have to solveproblems with genetic parents in the same way they do with each other andwith their older children -- certainly two parents do not always agreeabout how their children should be reared, but they generally can workit out somehow without having to go to the courts or have the state bean arbitrator; 3) we could (in a perfect world) abandon the idea of itsbeing important who has authority and instead concentrate effortson trying to decide and publicize what kinds of things are importantin regard to rearing children and why.
