Discussing his opposition to same-sex marriage, Liberal MP Kevin Andrews said children who are brought up with a mother and father are 'better off than those who are not'. Let's look at the research.

There is no convincing evidence that same-sex relationships are less stable than heterosexual relationships, nor that they have a negative impact on the children raised within them.
