Historic gay marriage trial begins in Detroit

Posted: Updated:

(02/25/14) - Children need good parents, no matter their gender or sexual orientation, a psychologist testified Tuesday at a trial challenging Michigan's ban on gay marriage, according to the Associated Press.

David Brodzinsky, an expert in adoption and foster care and a former Rutgers University professor, said there are no "discernible differences" in children who are raised by same-sex couples and youth raised by heterosexuals.

"It's not the gender of the parents that's the key. It's the quality of the parenting," said Brodzinsky, based in Oakland, Calif.

Two Detroit-area nurses who together are raising three adopted children are seeking to overturn a Michigan constitutional amendment that recognizes marriage only between a man and a woman.
