Same-sex couples and adoption

Florida same-sex couples who have children may want to consider second-parent adoption. This is a way of ensuring that a child who is biologically related to one but not both parents will legally be considered the child of both parents. According to the Supreme Court, every state must recognize second-parent adoptions from any other state, so this process will protect the parent-child relationship anywhere in the country.

The data also showed that there was a strong correlation between income and divorce rate.
