A recent study reveals that teenager and adult women who grew up in homes without her father were about three times more likely to engage in lesbian behavior.
Statistics are also higher with step-families, cohabiting step-families and the single divorced parent, but far lower when the girl is raised by biological parents who are married and among women who claim to worship weekly or monthly.
These statistics confirm the Bible’s support for traditional monogamous, heterosexual marriage between one man and one woman (see Genesis 2:24 and Matthew 19:1-12, among other passages).
For the study, the Family Research Council looked into the family lives of 7,463 women between the ages of 14 and 44.
