In "Married, not married" (Forum, April 26), Brendan Frye is troubled that "if a legally married same-sex couple with children moved from New York to Utah, their marriage is dissolved. Think of the chaos for that family, the children learning their parents are no longer married."

Let's talk about children adopted by gay couples. Do they have a say in being adopted by a gay couple? No, they don't.

Let's talk about rights. Where are the rights of the children being forced into a lifestyle of homosexuality?

It's no different than children being raised in a household in which the parents are drug abusers, alcoholics or mentally or physically abusive.

If children see this lifestyle 24/7, they grow up thinking that this lifestyle is normal. It is not normal.
