Latin hunk Ricky Martin, right, and his partner Carlos Gonzalez (seen in a photo dated May 16, 2012) have split up after 5 years together. The pair were fathers to Martin’s sons, Valentino Martin and Matteo Martin. The twins were born to a surrogate mother. The men were usually accompanied by a nanny or a female friend during public outings such as the one above, but nannies are not proper substitutes for a caring, nurturing mother. Child experts say children raised without a mother are at special risk. Motherless children grow up to experience difficulties maintaining relationships as adults, and they often experience depression. A recent study showed that children of gay parents fared worse than children raised by married heterosexuals and even children raised by single mothers.
“Most conclusions about same-sex parenting have been drawn from small, convenience samples, not larger, random ones,” Mark Regnerus, an associate professor of sociology at The University of Texas at Austin, said in a news release. “The results of that approach have often led family scholars to conclude that there are no differences between children raised in same-sex households and those raised in other types of families. But those earlier studies have inadvertently masked real diversity among gay and lesbian parenting experiences in America.”
